Manchester City boss Guardiola 'sorry' for win against Swansea with no VAR

Manchester City boss Guardiola 'sorry' for win against Swansea with no VAR

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

In Saturday's late afternoon kick-off, Premier League leaders Manchester City survived an almighty scare as they came from 2-0 down to beat Championship outfit Swansea 3-2. "I listen to the people, former players, who say if we don't win the Champions League it will be a big, big failure, if we just win the EFL Cup it will be a disaster season", he said."I don't understand, when they are former players [who know] how hard it is to win league titles and how hard it is to win the Champions League, how they can say these kinds of things to our club".

Although the Premier League champions initially looked bright, a confident Matt Grimes penalty put Swansea in the ascendancy and they doubled their advantage with an exceptionally worked Bersant Celina goal against his former club.

Pep Guardiola's team found a way back into the game in the 69th when Bernardo Silva struck.

'Manifesto' sent to New Zealand PM's office minutes before Christchurch attack
Meanwhile, the final day of the Auckland secondary schools dance festival Polyfest was cancelled following the attacks. The royal couples have both visited Christchurch on separate visits to New Zealand before.

In the 88th minute, there was further controversy as Aguero was in an offside position when heading home the victor.

Pep Guardiola admits he is exhausted and needs to get away from football for a week as he prepares for the final two months of the season and what could be a historic quadruple. "I liked [this game] because we played in a different way with two strikers".

The visitors drew level in the 78th minute when Cameron Carter-Vickers' challenge on Sterling was deemed a penalty even though the defender appeared to touch the ball first. "I don't understand why VAR is not used in this competition at this stage".

"We try to play that way", Swansea manager Graham Potter said of the second goal.

Just as I type these words the comeback is indeed on for Brighton! City knew their luck was in after Aguero's spot-kick went in off the back of Nordfeldt but the keeper then brilliantly denied Aguero from close range. Ironically Swansea had access to the system in the quarter-finals previous year - while still in the Premier League. "But you have to ask the authorities why the VAR is not here", Guardiola told a news conference. I don't like to win in that way.
