Manchester City broke through Newport’s stubborn defence in the second half to beat the fourth-tier side 4-1 in the FA Cup, although the result wasn’t as straightforward as the scoreline suggested.

Newport’s hopes of an epic fifth-round upset were still intact when Padraig Amond pulled a goal back to make it 2-1 in the 88th minute. But Phil Foden replied instantly with his second goal of the game and Riyad Mahrez added an injury-time score, allowing City to advance to the quarterfinals to keep Pep Guardiola’s side in the hunt for a possible four trophies.
