Man City storm back as Man United crash out of FA Cup

Sergio Aguero

Goals from Bernardo Silva and Sergio Aguero send City into the semi-final round ahead of the worldwide break. Here's what Bernardo Silva had to say about the win!

Sergio Aguero swooped late to edge an FA Cup thriller at Swansea City in Manchester City's favour on Saturday.

Get closer to the likes of Sergio Aguero, Kevin De Bruyne, Gabriel Jesus, Raheem Sterling, Riyad Mahrez, Benjamin Mendy and the rest of Pep Guardiola's team.

It was a lucky escape for City as replays showed Raheem Sterling was fortunate to win the penalty that led to the equaliser, while Aguero was marginally offside for the victor.

"I'm sorry it was offside".

But while VAR will be used at some FA Cup games, it was not in use in Wales and the decisions were upheld unchecked.

Having secured a last-eight spot in the Champions League to go with their League Cup title, City made a strong start as they looked to continue their quest to become the first side to win all four major trophies in an English season.

Far-right Australian senator egged, faces censure for anti-Muslim comments
The senator was expelled from Katter's Australian Party, after people condemned him for his "white supremacy ideology". Anning then immediately turns and slaps the teenager, before attempting to attack him again.

Sergio Aguero was then in an offside position when he scored the victor in the 88th minute, but the Video Assistant Referee was not in use as the game was not being played at a Premier League ground.

City piled on the pressure in the second half and Bernardo Silva halved the deficit after 69 minutes before Aguero's penalty hit a post and rebounded off goalkeeper Kristoffer Nordfeldt and then City snatched a late victor. "The performance was one to be very proud of".

"We are so happy", Silva said.

"It means a lot because we know how big Wolves were in the 1950s and 1960s and there are people in the stadium who have memories of that".

"We've had a great run and now we've had two defeats".

Javi Gracia's side had taken the lead through Etienne Capoue's first-half strike before Michy Batshuayi equalised for Palace after the interval.

They are top of the Premier League, in the Champions League quarter-finals and have already won the League Cup.
