(EFE) – Manchester City took one more step in its adventure to regain the English Cup by easily defeating Swansea City (1-3) and reaching the quarterfinals.
The ‘Sky Blues’, who take all competition seriously and who already have 15 victories in a row, drew a very competitive eleven and got rid of the Championship team, second category of English football, without excessive problems.
The & # 39; Swans & # 39; held the City stakes for 30 minutes, who went ahead with a poisoned center by Kyle Walker that Ferran Torres did not reach and who slipped into the goal of the premises.
In the second half, the City sentenced the match in less than 5 minutes, first with a ball filtered by Rodri for Raheem Sterling to define in the heads up and then when Gabriel Jesús made a great control inside the area, he turned around and finished off with a volley.
With 15 minutes remaining, Swansea closed the gap with a shot from Whittaker inside the area. In addition, Rodri left the pitch touched with a blow, the worst news for City on the Welsh night.
In this way, City accompanies Bournemouth and Manchester United to the quarter-finals of the English Cup and awaits a rival to continue trying to revalidate the title they won two seasons ago.
