Bournemouth dumped out of FA Cup by third tier Wigan

Premier League Bournemouth were dumped out of the FA Cup after an embarrassing 3-0 third-round replay defeat by third tier Wigan Athletic on Wednesday.
Wigan, who won the competition five years ago but have since slipped down the divisions, overcame a weakened Bournemouth side with a first-half effort from Sam Morsy and quick-fire second-half goals from Dan Burn and Callum Elder.
Swansea City, the Premier League's bottom side, also reached the fourth round with Wilfried Bony grabbing the winner in a 2-1 victory over Championship leaders Wolverhampton Wanderers.
Jordan Ayew gave Swansea the lead after 11 minutes with a superb goal reminiscent of Ricky Villa's famous Cup final replay winner for Tottenham Hotspur against Manchester City in 1981, but Wolves equalised through Diogo Jota after the break.
