Swansea 1-3 Manchester City: League leaders cruise into FA Cup quarter-finals with Kyle Walker, Raheem Sterling and Gabriel Jesus all on target

Manchester City secures their 15th win in succession in all competitions, winning Swansea City 3-1 in their FA Cup clash this evening.

The visitors took the lead in the first half through Kyle Walker direct from across.

Raheem Sterling and Gabriel Jesus added goals early in the second half to put the game beyond doubt, although Morgan Whittaker was able to add a late consolation for the Swans.

Swansea is next in action against Sheffield Wednesday on the road on Sunday in the Championship while Manchester City takes on Tottenham on the same day on home soil in the Premier League.

There are no limits to what Manchester City can achieve when they play with this style and menace.

The last time Pep Guardiola’s side looked this unstoppable, they did what no team had done before and won every trophy available in English football.

City dominated the first half, with Ferran Torres and Gabriel Jesus both having gone close before Kyle Walker’s low cross on 30 minutes dribbled past everyone and into the net.

The game was then practically off inside five minutes of the second half. First Sterling escaped the Swansea markers to drill in a second before Jesus superbly controlled Bernardo Silva’s headed pass to smash home a third and secure the 200th win for the club since Guardiola took charge.

The strength in depth Guardiola squad possesses is far greater than at any other sense during his City reign, with the likes of Aymeric Laporte, Benjamin Mendy and Eric Garcia among those given a rare start at the Liberty Stadium.

The circumstance in that Sergio Aguero and Kevin De Bruyne are both closing in on their returns from illness and injury, respectively, and truly right now Guardiola will not be all that worried.

Though a serial winner, the Catalan is far too sensible to get carried away with talk of league titles or quadruples.
