Wigan secured a sensational win over Manchester United to breathe fresh life into the Barclays Premier League title race and lift themselves out of the relegation zone for the first time since October.

Shaun Maloney curled home a superb winner four minutes after the break in yet another game marred by controversial decisions.

Victor Moses had a goal disallowed, United were denied a penalty as an eight-match winning run came to an end and even the corner from which the hosts grabbed their first victory in 15 attempts against United was questionable.
