How A Manchester City Old Boy Almost Derailed Pep Guardiola's Quadruple Bid

Pep Guardiola apologised to Swansea on Saturday night after Manchester City survived an almighty FA Cup scare because of the absence of VAR.

A dry opening half resulted in fewer scoring chances, with each side reduced to shots from range, with Marcus Rashford firing at John Ruddy on 14 minutes.

In a dramatic game in south Wales, Championship side Swansea were 2-0 up against Premier League leaders City shortly before the half hour through a Matt Grimes penalty and fine strike by Bersant Celina.

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. "I don't like to lose games when the decisions are wrong but the referees don't want to make wrong decisions, but they must be helped".

Then Bernardo Silva pulled one back, a most generous penalty gifted them an equaliser, and Sergio Aguero scored an offside late victor.

"That's important because for the future, for the new players and managers who are coming, they will learn from this group of players, and this group of people, that we never give up and fight for every single game and title until the end".
