Swindon Town vs Manchester City - LIVE!

The Premier League champions made light work of their lower league opposition on Friday night.

While Harry McKirdy’s goal to pull one back for the home side as City led by three goals gave Swindon something to shout about, City largely controlled the evening with an elegant ease so often seen across other competitions.

Bernardo Silva, Gabriel Jesus (who also missed a penalty), Ilkay Gundogan and the excellent Cole Palmer ensured even a City side without Pep Guardiola made it through to the fourth round and avoided what would have been one of the biggest upsets of all time.

Swindon did give a good account of themselves but ultimately and understandably just couldn’t match a side who are still able to field a team many in Europe would envy even despite their recent Covid problems

The FA Cup is back. Isn’t it glorious?

50:00 - Ally McCoist now comparing how many roundabouts his hometown has in comparison to Swindon.

Tells you a lot about the game...

All City again

21:05 , Jonathan Gorrie

46:00 - A little unsurprising perhaps but City are just dominating now.

A long road ahead for Swindon.

Back underway

21:02 , Jonathan Gorrie

Here we go for the second-half!

HT: Swindon 0-2 Man City

20:48 , Jonathan Gorrie

The Premier League champions are in cruise control.


20:45 , Jonathan Gorrie

45:00: AMAZING attempt from Cancelo almost hits the top corner.

Ally McCoist cannot believe it. Great scenes.


20:40 , Jonathan Gorrie

40:00 - Walker has to cover and clear before Simpson tapped in.

Very well worked.

Hard to see a way back now

20:38 , Jonathan Gorrie

36:00 - Barring perhaps the greatest turnaround in FA Cup history, Swindon are out.

A shame really as the game started so well but City are just so ruthless.


20:32 , Jonathan Gorrie

32:00 - Steffen almost lobbed after a loose ball from the back.

Swindon sunk

20:22 , Jonathan Gorrie

21:00 -A long way to go of course but the early pressing we saw from Swindon has died down somewhat.


20:19 , Jonathan Gorrie

18:00 - Silva puts one OVER the bar after a defensive mix-up from Swindon.

14:00 - Cancelo makes space for shot just outside the box but drags it just wide.

City settling

20:11 , Jonathan Gorrie

11:00 - Ominous now as City start to knock the ball around.

They’ve not had it easy by any means but this is the kind of game they kill so many top level teams with.


20:06 , Jonathan Gorrie

05:00 - Cancelo produces a filthy nutmeg, squares to Silva only for his compatriot to hit it over the crossbar.


20:05 , Jonathan Gorrie

04:00 - What’s so impressive about Swindon is their ability to play out from the back.

When City lose the ball, there’s no panic from the home side, they string passes together in an effort to build a fast counter-attack.

Should be an entertaining affair.

What an atmosphere

20:04 , Jonathan Gorrie

03:00 - Every time Swindon even look like winning the ball, the crowd erupt.

This is why we all love the FA Cup.


20:02 , Jonathan Gorrie

Your Evening Standard Prediction

18:19 , Jonathan Gorrie

With all due respect to Swindon, it’s almost impossible to imagine them beating City, even if there are wholesale changes.

City to win 3-0.

Latest Man City team news

17:58 , Jonathan Gorrie

Pep Guardiola and assistant Juanma Lillo will both miss the match with City’s Covid-19 cases topping 21 on Thursday, seven of which are first-team players. Assistant coach Rodolfo Borrell will take charge from the dugout.

Phil Foden and Oleksandr Zinchenko both missed the win at Arsenal after testing positive, while Riyad Mahrez is at AFCON and John Stones is a doubt due to a knock.

Borrell told reporters: “It’s possibly one of the easiest line-ups to decide: we just play with the ones available. We don’t have many more.”
