LONDON: Manchester City survived an FA Cup scare as they came from 2-0 down to beat second division Swansea 3-2. reach the semi-finals and maintain their pursuit of the trophy quadruple.
However neighbours United will not be progressing after losing 2-1 away to Wolves, a second successive defeat for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s men.
The other quarter-final saw Watford beat fellow Premier outfit Crystal Palace 2-1.
Sergio Aguero’s 88th-minute header at the Liberty Stadium kept City’s quadruple dream alive when it looked for a long time that it was going to end.
They found themselves 2-0 down inside 30 minutes to Graham Potter’s side as Matt Grimes’ penalty and a Bersant Celina effort had the Swans dreaming of an upset.
City had to wait until the 69th minute to get back in the game as Bernardo Silva bagged and they drew level when Aguero’s penalty deflected into the net off goalkeeper Kristoffer Nordfeldt.
With extra-time looming Aguero pulled off the great escape as City advanced to Wembley.
Andre Gray’s late strike sent Watford through to the last four with a 2-1 win over Crystal Palace.
The game also looked to be heading to extra-time after Michy Batshuayi cancelled out Etienne Capoue’s first-half opener.
But Gray struck in the 79th minute, converting Roberto Pereyra’s cross from close range, to earn a Wembley date for his side.
City have now reached the FA Cup semi-final in two of the last three seasons – as many as they had in their previous 35 campaigns in the competition – but this was the first time they have recovered to winfrom two goals down in any competition under Pep Guardiola.
They have scored more goals than any other side in the FA Cup this season (19) while Aguero has been involved in 22 goals in 20 FA Cup appearances for City (18 goals, 4 assists).
