Manchester City and Watford reach FA Cup semi-finals

City came back from two goals down at the Liberty Stadium to book a semi-final spot for the second time in three seasons and keep alive their hopes of an unprecedented Quadruple in English football.

Having already won the League Cup and advanced to the Champions League quarter-finals, Premier League leaders City remain in the hunt for a clean sweep of all four major trophies.

City dropped to second in the Premier League on Sunday after Liverpool's win over Fulham, but they do have a game in hand over Jurgen Klopp's side heading into the global break.

The second and third goals might not have stood had VAR been in operation at the Liberty Stadium, with City awarded a dubious penalty before Sergio Aguero seemed to be in an offside position when heading home the victor.

"In the semifinals of the FA Cup it's one game, anything can happen against very strong opponents".

Earlier on Saturday, Watford reached the last four after substitute Andre Gray scored two minutes after coming off the bench to secure a 2-1 victory over Crystal Palace.

Wolves held on to win a game they dominated but Swansea couldn't protect their 2-0 lead against a City side that benefited from two refereeing mistakes.

The Premier League leaders mounted a stunning recovery to overcome the daunting deficit after Sterling and Aguero entered the fray either side of the hour mark but the win was achieved in controversial circumstances with the equaliser and Aguero's victor hotly disputed.

"You have to ask the authorities why VAR is not here", City manager Guardiola said. Bersant Celina then doubled the lead by finishing off a sublime move with a curling first-time finish into the corner in the 29th.

The City pressure intensified and Aguero had the final word in the 89th minute with a stooping header to complete a stunning fightback.

"If it is not a penalty, and it is offside like the people say, I'm sorry", Guardiola said. His shot hit the post, deflected off the goalkeeper and in to draw City level.

The important thing for this club is being there, so in the next generations - the new managers and new players - they will know one generation of players fought every single game, in every single competition until the end.
