Riyad Mahrez is delighted after Manchester City secured a hard-fought 3-2 victory over Swansea City on Saturday to advance into the FA Cup semifinals.

The Citizens started the game unimpressively after they fell to two early goals from Matt Grimes and Bersant Celina.

Bernardo Silva halved the deficit before Kristoffer Nordfeldt own goal and Sergio Aguero strike sealed the win.

“Tough game in Wales but we got to the next round,” Mahrez posted on Instagram.
