City’s Quadruple run is still in full swing after a controversial 3-2 comeback win at Swansea took them into the semi-finals of the FA Cup.
The Premier League champions were 2-0 down to their Championship opponents, but three goals in the last 19 minutes kept them on course for an unprecedented four-trophy haul.

And speaking about that victory in south Wales, Silva’s City team-mate Bernardo Silva believes this season could be special with a clean sweep of trophies still possible.
‘I think all the players feel that this season can be special,’ he said after City’s great escape.
‘Last season was special in the way we won the Premier League. This season can be special because we’ve already won one competition and we’re still playing for three.
‘Our opponents have made it very complicated for us to win trophies this season, but I think we’ve been doing quite well and we’ll try to keep the momentum.’
