Lack of VAR at Swansea surprises Guardiola after controversial Man City comeback

Sergio Aguero

City fought back from 2-0 down to record a dramatic and controversial 3-2 victory in the quarter-final clash.

In reality, the Citizens more than deserved the win.

A few minutes later, United States worldwide 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. "Swansea's stadium could have been equipped for VAR, they were a Premier League team not long ago and they will feel hard done by tonight and rightly so".

Secondly, if it's a penalty or offside like the people say then I'm sorry.

"We are in the dark ourselves over the non-use of VAR here and that it would only be used in Premier League stadiums", the spokesman told Press Association Sport.

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

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.

"That seems a bit unusual considering we were there for seven years and all the technology is placed here to accommodate it".

After City's shock exit to League One Wigan Athletic in last season's FA Cup, Guardiola's side were facing another humbling at lower league opponents after Matt Grimes penalty and a brilliant strike from ex-Academy player Bersant Celina.

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.

"I don't want anything to take away from the quality of our performance", said Swansea manager Potter.

"I'm very proud of the players". But for a long time tonight it looked like that might happen.
