Three youths held over Swansea v Man City pitch invasions

Sergio Aguero

Had VAR been applied to non-Premier League stadiums in the FA Cup, the visitors' second and third goals would not have stood.

Matt Grimes calmly slotted the Swans ahead from the penalty spot, before a stunning move on the break saw the impressive Daniel James ran at the defence to open up the space for Bersant Celina, a former City youngster, to curl a wonderful shot past Ederson and into the top corner. I don't like to win in that way.

The Premier League leaders mounted a stunning recovery to overcome the daunting deficit after Sterling and Aguero entered the fray either side of the hour mark but the win was achieved in controversial circumstances with the equaliser and Aguero's victor hotly disputed.

Pep Guardiola's team roared back from a two-goal half-time deficit to score three times after the break, with Sergio Aguero grabbing a disputed late victor in a 3-2 victory.

Aguero's penalty struck the post and went in off Nordfeldt while Aguero's winning goal, a stooping 88th-minute header, should have been disallowed for offside.

Aguero had the last laugh, however, when he headed his 28th goal of the season in all competitions, although he appeared to be offside and the Video Assistant Referee (VAR) system was not being used in the match to the dismay of the Swansea fans.

"Sometimes it's centimetres and they spend three minutes on VAR looking at it, imagine taking the decision in one second during the game".

"We are so happy", Silva said.

"They asked all the clubs if they want VAR and we said we want VAR all season".

"I said before the game if you do be yourself you might just get a miracle".

"I don't like to win it this way, but at the same time if you see the game we played incredibly well". "It could have gone either way, Congratulations to Swansea who played very well and made it hard but we kept going, pressing and eventually the goals came".
