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

  • Sergio Aguero

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.

The Championship side battled manfully as they tried to ensure Pep Guardiola's wait for a first FA Cup Final win continued but they were blitzed in the second half by the Premier League leaders.

Aguero missed a glorious chance to score seven minutes from time, but the Argentine striker had the final say when he headed the victor two minutes from time.

"Honestly I didn't watch it".

"I'm sorry it was offside", Guardiola said afterwards of the victor. "But you have to ask the authorities why the VAR is not here", Guardiola told a news conference.

"People will say not winning the Champions League is a big, big failure for this club but I don't understand when this comes from former players - they know how hard it is to win the Champions League or win the title", Guardiola said. All around Europe, VAR is there and here it is not. Fans and pundits alike bemoaned the lack of VAR at the game which would have surely have denied the Sky Blues a penalty.

"I want to congratulate the team and everybody".

"Sometimes it's centimetres and they spend three minutes on VAR looking at it, imagine taking the decision in one second during the game". I don't like to win in that way. The keeper was incredible.

'We deserved to win the game by far - but to win in that way, I'm sorry'.

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. "We had composure, shape, good running", said Wolves manager Nuno Espirito Santo.

"Now we can head off for the worldwide break and when we come back, we can try to win the three competitions we are still in". "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".

"It won't be easy - we could win them all or lose them all - everything is possible but we will be trying our best to be successful".
