Man City put-up a stunning comeback against Swansea. The Saturday victory pushed City to reach the FA Cup semi-finals while keeping their quadruple hope alive as Wolves sent Manchester United packing.

Manchester United struggled from a two-goal half-time deficit to deposit goal three times after half-time, with Sergio Aguero grabbing a disputed late winner in a 3-2 final score.

Manchester United couldn’t match their city rivals, slipping to a 2-1 defeat at Wolves thereby handing Ole Gunnar Solskjaer a second straight defeat.

Football analyst saays:

”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.

”But Bernardo Silva pulled a goal back in the 69th minute and the visitors went for the kill, drawing level after an Aguero penalty hit a post and went in off goalkeeper Kristoffer Nordfeldt. The City pressure intensified and Aguero had the final word in the 88th minute with a stooping header to complete a stunning fightback.”

Meanwhile, it was a narrow escape for Man City as digital replays revealed that Raheem Sterling was only lucky to win the penalty that brought the equalizing mark, and Aguero was marginally offside for the winner.

“If it is not penalty, and it is offside like the people say, I’m sorry, they ask all the clubs about the VAR (video assistant referee) and all around Europe the VAR is there and here it’s not. 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.” Pep Guardiola said.

Holding League Cup championship and having scaled through to the top of Champions League quarter-finals, Manchester City aims to sweep all four major trophies.
