Man City storm back as Man United crash out of FA Cup

But City proved a different proposition after the break and the introduction of Sergio Aguero proved decisive.

"People say we are going to win three or four titles and the day we drop one competition they say it's a big failure for Manchester City", the former Spain worldwide told BBC Sport.

Premier League leaders Manchester City recovered from two goals down to beat Championship side Swansea City 3-2 at the Liberty Stadium on Saturday to progress to the FA Cup semi-finals.

The Premier League champions were awarded a penalty 12 minutes from time when Cameron Carter-Vickers appeared to touch the ball as he slid in on Raheem Sterling. I don't like to win games when decisions are wrong.

Guardiola said: 'If it is not a penalty, and it is offside like the people say, I'm sorry.

VAR cameras are installed at all Premier League grounds, so the facilities are used by the FA during their Cup games.

Replays showed the Argentina striker was marginally offside but the video assistant review system was not in use at the Liberty Stadium, despite having been used in City's third and fourth-round ties at their Etihad Stadium home.

Having secured a last-eight spot in the Champions League to go with their League Cup title, City made a strong start as they looked to continue their quest to become the first side to win all four major trophies in an English season.

United never convinced and could have lost by more, with Sergio Romero turning Jimenez's header on to the bar and denying Jota. "We had composure, shape, good running", said Wolves manager Nuno Espirito Santo. "To try to achieve the same is much, much harder now but we will try step by step".

Javi Gracia's side had taken the lead through Etienne Capoue's first-half strike before Michy Batshuayi equalised for Palace after the interval.
