Manchester City Dramatically Through To FA Cup Semi-Final
Sergio Aguero’s late winner saw Manchester City dramatically keep their quadruple bid on track by coming from two goals down to beat Swansea and reach the FA Cup semi-finals.
Substitute 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 the video assistant review system was not in use at the Liberty Stadium.

City had levelled in contentious circumstances too when Cameron Carter-Vickers was judged to have tripped Raheem Sterling in the area and Aguero’s penalty hit the inside of the post before rebounding in off Nordfeldt for an own goal.
Defeat was harsh on the impressive hosts, who led 2-0 inside 30 minutes through Matt Grimes’ penalty and Bersant Celina’s spectacular second.
