The English champions were looking at ease as immediately Silva and Jesus put them up in the first half, with Gundogan making it 3-0 later.
But Swindon regained their composure after Ward saved Jesus’ penalty and McKirdy equalised, only for Palmer to seal the victory for the Pep Guardiola side.
Swindon Town 1-4 Manchester City was the final score at the end of the day.
City will be extremely happy with their performance without their manager, Guardiola.
They had over 23 shots during the game and played so well, with Palmer making the most out of his chances in the starting lineup.
Swindon were not favored to win this clash, but McKirdy’s goal obviously ensures they will go home happy ?
