Roberto Mancini cannot feel totally secure at the richly ambitious Manchester City following a run of one win in their opening four league fixtures and it will not please him to know that the club have never won a Premier League game at Wigan. The visitors are, though, favourites to triumph, even more so after their assured victory in Salzburg on Thursday. The hosts, who have yet to win at the DW Stadium this campaign, can take heart from their recent win at Tottenham and last week's draw with Sunderland. Sachin Nakrani
