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

The City pressure intensified and Aguero had the final word in the 88th minute with a stooping header to complete a stunning fightback.

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 know I'll be a failure if I don't win all the titles, I'm sorry", the City boss quipped.

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

In the first ever FA Cup meeting between the sides, things got even better for the Welsh side when Bersant Celina curled home a well-worked second goal in the 28th minute.

City finished the tie off with goals from Bernardo Silva and Aguero either side of a Kristoffer Nordfelt own goal - the Swansea goalkeeper unfortunate that Aguero's penalty attempt hit the post only to hit the back of him and go in.
