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

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

A few minutes later, United States global Cameron Carter-Vickers was judged to have fouled Raheem Sterling in the box, even though he won the ball and only then seemed to bring Sterling to the ground.

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.

Substitute Aguero beat Swansea keeper Kristoffer Nordfeldt with a diving header off Bernardo Silva's low cross at the end of a superb move in the 88th minute.

In the first ever FA Cup meeting between the sides, things got even better for the Welsh side when Bersant Celina curled home a well-worked second goal in the 28th minute.

Guardiola did not win a trophy in his debut campaign in England - the first season in his coaching career where he ended up without silverware - before leading City to the Premier League and League Cup in record-breaking fashion last season.

In reality, the Citizens more than deserved the win.

MPs REJECT amendment requesting to delay Brexit until June 30
Mrs May's deal lost by 149 votes on Tuesday, with 75 rebels from her own party as well as the 10 DUP MPs breaking ranks. The British parliament voted overwhelmingly on Thursday to seek a delay to the March 29 exit date enshrined in law.

"The most important for the club - more than winning one title - is having the mentality to be there until the end and fight for the titles in this stage of the season".

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

Those are the two stadiums where Premier League clubs are playing in the quarter-finals of the competition.

City piled on the pressure in the second half and Bernardo Silva halved the deficit after 69 minutes before Aguero's penalty hit a post and rebounded off goalkeeper Kristoffer Nordfeldt and then City snatched a late victor.

Guardiola was rueful about the decision in his post-match news conference, saying: "All around Europe there is VAR, here there is not".

The Liberty Stadium is equipped for VAR but because other Championship grounds are not, it was not operated for the sake of consistency.
