Foden dwelling on one mistake over decisive Newport double

Guardiola lauds Silva's 'incredible' FA Cup performance

Guardiola lauds Silva's 'incredible' FA Cup performance

Newport Fans pose prior to kick off during the FA Cup Fifth Round match between Newport County AFC and Manchester City at Rodney Parade on February 16, 2019 in Newport, United Kingdom.

Could this be the year City reach the final and, dare we say it, win the elusive UEFA Champions League?

But Leroy Sane struck six minutes after the interval, and Foden scored either side of Padraig Amond's chip before Riyad Mahrez added a fourth in stoppage-time.

"Phil's only problem is that he has to compete with Kevin de Bruyne, David Silva and Bernardo Silva", Guardiola said. "They were better than us in long-ball situations, but in the second half we adjusted with some movement".

Troubled by the rutted Rodney Parade pitch, City were indebted to Ederson for a superb save to keep them level during a lacklustre first-half display.

"I am a little bit disappointed with the last two goals we conceded, because we got back into it and we just wanted that one chance, but we didn't hold on".

But City's class showed in the second half with Foden at the fore of most of the Premier League champions' attacking enterprise. "I'm going to work on that".

It did not explain how several members previously were able to travel to meetings in the United Arab Emirates and Moscow. Ahmadi also said such a move also gave "recognition" to the Taliban.

"Football is not always playing on the biggest stages and on good surfaces".

Chris Hughton's side took a 2-0 half-time lead through Anthony Knockaert and Jurgen Locadia but had to endure an anxious finale after former Arsenal and Chelsea star Cole, a seven-time FA Cup victor, headed in with just under 10 minutes remaining. We had to adapt, and it can only help us be a better team. I am surprised they are in the position they are.

County had previously knocked out Leicester City and Middlesbrough in the competition but they had to succumb to the superior firepower of Pep Guardiola's men. "The support for the team was incredible, chanting: 'Who are you, who are you?'"

"It was tight - we scored the third goal just before 90 minutes - but we knew the game would be tight".

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's side were backed to run the French champions close following a blistering run of domestic form, but the Parisians instead offered them a reality check. "I said to the lads, 'I'm so proud of you, you deserve all the plaudits'".

"There were some lovely words from their players and manager". The 32-year-old is keen to stay at the club but will have to accept terms on lower wages.
