Manchester City and Watford reach FA Cup semi-finals

Lack of VAR at Swansea surprises Guardiola after controversial Man City comeback

"If the second was not a penalty and the third offside, I'm sorry", said Pep Guardiola, Manchester City manager.

After the break, City were struggling to find a way back into the game and it was after the introduction of Raheem Sterling and Sergio Aguero from the bench that they started to threaten.

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.

During his time in Manchester, he'd been loaned out to FC Twente in the Netherland and also Ipswich Town but given the chance to join Swansea, Celina made a decision to quit City for Swansea after only managing to make four appearances.

After Bernardo Silva pulled a goal back by curling a shot beyond the impressive Swansea goalkeeper Kristoffer Nordfeldt, TV replays suggested that City were the beneficiaries of two incorrect decisions by referee Andre Marriner that may have been overruled had the VAR system been in use.

"They ask all the clubs about the VAR and all around Europe, the VAR is there and here it's not".

Diess's remark "is in this context considered inappropriate", the supervisory board said in an emailed statement to Bloomberg. The phrase "arbeit macht frei" or work sets you free hung above the gates at Holocaust sites such as Auschwitz .

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. "When we analyse the game we deserved to win by far".

Ironically Swansea had access to the system in the quarter-finals previous year - while still in the Premier League.

"The penalty was really lucky but you need it, especially when you're in four competitions".

"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". Our physicality and mental approach is so demanding. "It's not nice but thankfully nothing happened this time".

Guardiola was less impressed with the Swansea fans, who invaded the pitch following the final whistle with substitute Oleksandr Zinchenko appearing to be jostled by one supporter.
