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's Fabian Delph was sent off in that game at the DW Stadium and against Swansea the same player was shown a yellow card which led to a penalty, slotted home by Matt Grimes after 20 minutes.

Manchester City have produced a stunning comeback to knock Swansea City out of the FA Cup.

It was a lucky escape for City as replays showed Raheem Sterling was fortunate to win the penalty that led to the equaliser, while Aguero was marginally offside for the victor.

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

"I'm sorry it was offside", Guardiola said afterwards of the victor.

Had VAR been applied to non-Premier League stadiums in the FA Cup, the visitors' second and third goals would not have stood.

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.

City finished the tie off with goals from Bernardo Silva and Aguero either side of a Kristoffer Nordfelt own goal - the Swansea goalkeeper unfortunate that Aguero's penalty attempt hit the post only to hit the back of him and go in. "The performance was one to be very proud of". "We had composure, shape, good running", said Wolves manager Nuno Espirito Santo. "Against Arsenal, we just couldn't score and today was poor, the poorest we've played", he said.

But they were silenced temporarily when Etienne Capoue slotted Watford ahead in the first half to put the hosts ahead.

They are top of the Premier League, in the Champions League quarter-finals and have already won the League Cup.
