FA Cup: Depleted Manchester City cruise past Swindon

A Covid-19 hit Manchester City showed no signs of depletion as they saw off Swindon in their FA Cup third-round tie. 

Bernardo Silva gave City who were without a coach, Pep Guardiola and seven first-team players an early lead before Gabriel Jesus made it two before the break. 

After the break, Ilkay Gundogan made it three with a stunning free-kick. 

And though, Swindon’s goalkeeper saved  Jesus penalty minutes later,  as Harry McKirdy pulled a goal back for the hosts late on, it did nothing to deter the dominant visitors who increased the tally to four goals through young debutant, Palmer.
