Manchester City came from a goal down to sail through to FA Cup Semi-finals

Swansea 2-3 Manchester City

Manchester City came from a goal down to sail through to FA Cup Semi-finals after two controversial late goals against Swansea, which saw City keep their quadruple bid on track.

Manchester City started brightly but it was Swansea that took the lead after a penalty goal converted by Matt Grimes. Penalty awarded as a result of a foul by Fabian Delph.

Then Bersant Celina curled in an achingly beautiful right-footed strike into the top corner, a strike which resulted from way back passing move with goalkeeper Kristoffer Nordfelt.

The visitors got one back 21 minutes before time with a sweet strike from Bernado Silva after a cross from the substitute Sergio Agüero falls to him.

Kristoffer Nordfeldt has been having a blinder in the Swansea goal but was unlucky after Sergio Aguero’s penalty hits the post, and then hits the back of the diving goalkeeper and goes in.

A controversial penalty but no video assistant review system (VAR) to check it.

Aguero beat Swansea keeper Kristoffer Nordfeldt with a diving header off Bernardo Silva’s low cross at the end of a superb move in the 88th minute.

Replays showed the Argentina striker was marginally offside but again the VAR was not in use at the Liberty Stadium.
