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

The quadruple? It's still on for Manchester City, but only just after a gripping FA Cup quarter-final.

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.

The technology is in use in the FA Cup and was available at the Liberty Stadium last season, but the Football Association is reported to have opted against equipping the ground with VAR since their relegation to the Championship.

"They asked all the clubs if they want VAR and we said we want VAR all season".

Of tomorrow's huge game he added: "We can feel in the city what's going on, everybody is expecting a big game, some of them say it's one of the most important games in the past year. When we analyse the game we deserved to win by far".

Wolves Have Knocked Manchester United Out Of The FA Cup
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has described Manchester United's FA Cup exit to Wolves as a "big step backwards". However it was not enough as Wolves ran out 2-0 victors in the quarter-final.

It was in the 69th minute when Pep Guardiola's side made the breakthrough, as Bernardo Silva struck home with an angled left-footer to give City hope.

The penalty that tied Saturday's game and Sergio Aguero's winning header in the 88th minute both came amid controversy, as the whistle seemed weak and Aguero seemed offside.

The kick-off time for Wolves vs Man United is 8:55pm, while that of Swansea vs Man City is 6:20pm.

Birmingham supporter Paul Mitchell was jailed after punching Aston Villa midfielder Jack Grealish in last Sunday's second city derby, while a man has been charged with common assault and invading the pitch during the Premier League game between Arsenal and Manchester United.
