"I don't like to lose games when the decisions are wrong but the referees don't want to make wrong decisions, but they must be helped".

It was a lucky escape for City as replays showed Raheem Sterling was fortunate to win the penalty that led to the equaliser, while Aguero was marginally offside for the victor. "Swansea's stadium could have been equipped for VAR, they were a Premier League team not long ago and they will feel hard done by tonight and rightly so".

But while VAR will be used at some FA Cup games, it was not in use in Wales and the decisions were upheld unchecked.

"I'm sorry it was offside", Guardiola said afterwards of the victor.

"People will say not winning the Champions League is a big, big failure for this club but I don't understand when this comes from former players - they know how hard it is to win the Champions League or win the title", Guardiola said.

"That seems a bit odd considering we were there for seven years and all the technology is placed here to accommodate it".

After falling 2-0 behind in the first-half Pep Guardiola's side completed the ultimate come-back through Bernardo Silva and a Sergio Aguero brace.

For a long time, the story of the game looked like it would be all about Celina, a player who joined Swansea from Manchester City and someone Guardiola knows all about.

"But we didn't give up".

The game was marred late on by a supporter running on to the pitch from a stand housing home fans and jostling City substitute Oleksandr Zinchenko.

"But it does not make it any easier when Aguero and Sterling come on, it makes it more hard and in the end we couldn't hold out".

"I'm very proud of the players".

On the pitch invasion, Guardiola added: "It's happened a few times lately and it's a worry because in the future we could have problems".
