City’s Silva cuts Red Devils’ lead

AFP, LONDON

Sunderland continued their recent revival by coming back from a goal down to win 3-2 at Wigan Athletic, who slipped into the drop zone.

David Vaughan’s own-goal gave Wigan a fourth-minute lead, but the visitors stormed back through a Craig Gardner penalty and a Steven Fletcher brace, before on-loan Manchester United forward Angelo Henriquez hit back for Wigan.

Swansea City warmed up for the second leg of their League Cup semi-final with Chelsea by beating Stoke City 3-1 at the Liberty Stadium.

Teenage defender Ben Davies, 19, scored his first senior goal to open the scoring early in the second half, with Jonathan de Guzman adding a classy brace, before Michael Owen replied for Stoke to claim his 150th Premier League goal.
