Manchester City endured some anxious moments but escaped from fourth-tier Newport County with their FA Cup hopes intact as Phil Foden scored twice in an ultimately comfortable 4-1 fifth-round victory yesterday morning (Singapore time).

"We're going to try".

City survived a tricky first half against a side that had already beaten Leicester City and Middlesbrough and nearly took the lead through a Tyreeq Bakinson header that was superbly saved by Ederson.

The Citizens avoided a possible giant-killing against League Two side Newport County after a brace from teenager Phil Foden as well as goals from Leroy Sane and Riyad Mahrez saw them cruise to the quarter finals of the competition, keeping the dreams of an historic quadruple alive.

City head to Gelsenkirchen, a region Gundogan is very familiar with, on Wednesday for the first leg of their Champions League Round of 16 tie.

Growing up I always tended to think of us as a plucky upstart, an outsider, who with the right combination of luck and grit, could win the Cup.

"And today was a good test for him, with second balls, long balls, he had to adapt".

City have been the most dominant team in English football in recent years, but have yet to progress beyond the semi-finals of the Champions League, Europe's most prized competition. We scored straight away as they scored.

Trump, at his rally Monday night, said that under the Green New Deal, "You're not allowed to own cows anymore". A copy of the new legislation published on Ocasio-Cortez's website was pulled off very soon after.

"We are Premier League footballers so we can handle any pitch", Foden said. Just after the game, Pep came over and congratulated me.

"It wasn't a good pitch but we are professional".

"What they do, they do incredibly". It was tight - we scored the third goal just before 90 minutes.

Last season, Newport beat League One Walsall and Championship challengers Leeds, before drawing with Tottenham in the fourth round and losing in a replay at Wembley. If we were to win it someday, the club would enter a new era - the same level as Real [Madrid], Barça, Bayern or Juventus.

Cameras spotting Guardiola speaking to the Irishman and he was asked about what was said - while he also revealed that City invited them into the dressing room after the game. "I wanted to go and slide on my knees in the corner, but we needed to get going again quickly and get back in the game".

"Getting to share the touchline with Pep Guardiola was magical for me".

"If someone like that says you can be proud of yourself it means a lot more".
