Swansea City 2 Manchester City 3: Controversial Aguero winner completes comeback

Raheem Sterling goes to ground to give Manchester City a penalty

City found themselves 2-0 down after 29 minutes, as Swansea's excellent first-half performance put them on course for a famous upset.

City were 12 minutes away from being knocked out of the FA Cup before fighting back to win 3-2 at Swansea.

"It is so hard, because the opponents are so good and we have 10 months with a lot of games".

Championship side Millwall host Premier League side Brighton on Sunday.

"We are in the dark ourselves over the non-use of VAR here and that it would only be used in Premier League stadiums", the spokesman told Press Association Sport.

Guardiola continued: "The most incredible thing after what we achieved last season is in this stage we are fighting for everything".

With the victory, City keeps its bid for the quadruple alive. "When we analyse the game we deserved to win by far".

Ironically Swansea had access to the system in the quarter-finals a year ago - while still in the Premier League. They ask all the clubs about the VAR and all around Europe, the VAR is there and here is not.

Swansea players were unhappy when Cameron Carter-Vickers was judged to have tripped substitute Raheem Sterling for the equaliser, while Sergio Aguero was offside when he headed in the victor two minutes from the end.

But the video assistant review system was not in use at the Liberty Stadium, despite having been used in City's third and fourth-round ties at their Etihad Stadium home.

Secondly, if it's a penalty or offside like the people say then I'm sorry.

But Bernardo Silva's fine outside-of-the-boot effort pulled one back 21 minutes from the end, before Raheem Sterling contentiously won a penalty despite Cameron Carter-Vickers appearing to get the ball - Sergio Aguero's effort going in off goalkeeper Kristoffer Nordfeldt.

Speaking on Match of the Day, former England captain Alan Shearer said: "It is very wrong and very unfair".
