Wigan boss Roberto Martinez was left fuming after his ten-men went down 5-0 to Manchester United.

The game turned on Connor Sammon's red card when United were just a goal ahead towards the end of the first half. Sammon stuck out his arm to try and shield possession, caught Michael Carrick in the face and Phil Dowd promptly sent him off.

"The red card is a shocking decision," said Martinez. "There was a little bit of a fight, as there was every time the two players went for the ball. None of them should have been a red card. None of them were malicious. There was no intent."
