Manchester City came to life in the second half to ease into the FA Cup quarter-finals on Saturday.
But it might not have been so straightforward.
Against all odds, fourth tier Newport County made a strong start to the game and the first big save was – unexpectedly – made by City stopper Ederson.
A hopeful long throw found Tyreeq Bakinson at the far post. And he must have thought he’d scored.
Ederson had other ideas.
😱 | @NewportCounty so close to taking the lead!
@The Emirates FA Cup –
What a stop!
Goals from Leroy Sané and Phil Foden put the Premier League side ahead after the break.
Newport had a brief moment of hope as Pádraig Amond scored with two minutes remaining but their dreams were soon dashed again as Foden netted to restore the two-goal lead.
Riyad Mahrez then added a fourth in injury time.
