Premier League champions Manchester City are set to escape punishment after their fans invaded the pitch at the Etihad Stadium on Sunday.

The decision comes a month after Wigan were charged for "failing to ensure that no spectators or unauthorized persons encroached onto the pitch".

This followed immediately after the Latics dumped City out of the FA Cup in one of the biggest shocks in the competition's history.

The FA are yet to dish out punishment to the Latics with an investigation ongoing.

City have already been crowned champions of England with five games left and they are chasing a record as the team with the most points if they can secure two more wins.

Having lost 5-1 on aggregate to Liverpool in the Champions League quarter finals, the Citizens had won the Carrabo Cup at the expense of Arsenal.
