Wigan booked their place in the FA Cup semi-final with an impressive 3-0 win at Everton.

Everton were favourites to reach the last four for the second season in a row, but their dreams were ruined by a burst of three goals in less than four minutes.

Maynor Figueroa, Callum McManaman and Jordi Gomez all scored to seal the win.

Wigan boss Roberto Martinez said: "I thought the performance was outstanding."

In the other quarter-final Manchester City brushed past Championship side Barnsley, winning 5-0.

Carlos Tevez scored three goals and made two more in a one-sided contest.
