Manchester City are through to the FA Cup quarter-finals after beating promotion-chasing Championship side Swansea City at The Liberty Stadium.

Kyle Walker opened the scoring in the first-half and thanks to two quickfire goals after the break from Raheem Sterling and Gabriel Jesus City advanced fairly easily.

City now stand at 15 straight wins in all comps. Pep Guardiola himself has now amassed 200 wins at the club.

Pep Guardiola Reaction

On Rodri : “the doctor didn’t tell me anything so hopefully he will be fit, we will see in the next hours” re: Rodri injury. On his performance: “He’s playing really well. He’s tall, personality. I would say all season he’s playing well.”

“Ruben [Dias] had a fever and still has, a problem with his stomach. That’s why he was not able to train and today we travelled. Fernandinho had some niggles in the quad and he was not able to play.”

“He (Gabriel Jesus) played really well again today. He was incredibly involved at Anfield when he didn’t play, he was incredibly supportive in the locker room to his mates. For a striker it is so important to score a goal every game and he was really brilliant.”
