Manchester City defender Kyle Walker has admitted that his opener against Swansea City on Wednesday was meant to be a cross.

Raheem Sterling and Gabriel Jesus went on to score in the second half as City advanced to the quarter-final round with a 3-1 win.

"It was a cross for my goal but we deserved a bit of luck with the way we were playing and I am lucky to get on the scoresheet," Walker told BT Sportafter the game.

"We have made a few changes from last season tactically with pressing and how we move the ball around. The gaffer knows what he wants. He has proved it across many clubs and he has brought that to City.

"Over the last four seasons we have been very good. Last season we just got beat by a very good Liverpool team.

"It was a professional win and we move on to the weekend. Everyone who comes into the team does well. All I can do is make sure I am doing the right things when I am on the field.

"Every season I've been here we've always been fighting for trophies. Each and every game, we play like it is our last and try to win the game."

By defeating the Swans, City have now won 15straight games in all competitions, something no other English top-flight side had previously managed.

Man City appear well positioned to win an unprecedented quadruple this season. In domestic cups, they are in the FA Cup last eight while they will face Tottenham in theCarabao Cup final in April.

City also currently lead the Premier Leagueand have advanced to the Champions League last 16, where they will take on Borussia Monchengladbach in the first leg on February 24.

Guardiola's side will return to Premier League action on Saturday when they face Tottenham at Etihad Stadium.

City currently lead the league by five points over rivals Manchester United, with the Red Devils having played one game more than Guardiola's men.
