Swansea City 2-3 Manchester City: Citizens in second-half FA Cup comeback to keep quadruple hopes alive

Manchester City survived an almighty FA Cup scare as they came from 2-0 down to beat Championship Swansea 3-2.

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.
