Magic Of The FA Cup: Dark Horse Wolves Through With Watford As Manchester City Struggle Against Swansea. Highlights. Comments. Player Ratings

Emirates FA Cup Saturday – Wolves Beat Manchester United As City Scrape Through Against Swansea

By Marc Gingell

Wolves joined Watford and Manchester City in the FA Cup Semi Final with an inspired Raul Jiménez performance which might have a few other clubs looking to sign the Mexican striker.

Manchester City needed an 88th minute goal from substitute Sergio Agüero to finally end Swansea’s chances. Swansea went 2-0 up inside 29 minutes thanks to a Matt Grimes penalty and a great strike from Bersant Celina. Celina, who made penalty headline news in the week, proved his worth in this game.

Pattaya One. A great moment for Bersant Celina as he scores against Manchester City.

In the early game, Andre Gray scored the winner two minutes after coming on as a 77th minute substitute as Watford beat Crystal Palace 2-1.

Pattaya One. Watford winner. Andre Gray.
