Man City fight back to keep quadruple bid alive

Man City fight back to keep quadruple bid alive

Pep Guardiola's team roared back from a two-goal half-time deficit to score three times after the break, with Sergio Aguero grabbing a disputed late victor in a 3-2 victory.

Swansea players were unhappy when Cameron Carter-Vickers was judged to have tripped substitute Raheem Sterling for the equaliser, while Sergio Aguero was offside when he headed in the victor two minutes from the end.

Aguero then completed the turnaround at the end with a header despite appearing to stray offside and, had VAR been in use, their second and third goals arguably would have been disallowed.

Guardiola named a strong side for the trip to Wales, but left leading goalscorers Raheem Sterling and Aguero on the bench.

After Bernardo Silva's superb finish with the outside of the boot got his side a foothold in the match, Aguero was presented with the ideal chance to draw City level after Sterling had been felled in the penalty area.

City still had plenty of firepower on the pitch but Swansea stood firm in the early stages and after Roberts was upended in the box Grimes stroked home his penalty with aplomb.

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 chose to quit City for Swansea after only managing to make four appearances.

"We are so happy", Silva said.

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

Guardiola said: "You have to say congratulations to Swansea, it was incredible".

'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.

"I don't like to win it this way, but at the same time if you see the game we played incredibly well".

"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".
