PEP GUARDIOLA, Manchester City manager, on his player Phil Foden.

"The first 20 minutes were hard from throwing and long balls and they are much better than us in those situations but in the last 20 minutes we put the game into our hands and the goals help us to win the games".

Foden has now scored five goals this season, three in the FA Cup and two in the League Cup.

"It was important to show professionalism and keep the ball moving and they exhausted", said Foden.

These days I still dream of seeing us lift the Cup but my experience is that in the final tickets are given to so many sponsors and FA members that there are relatively few around for an ordinary fan.

'We know that he's a guy who [gets] close to the box and has this mentality to score goals, and he has the ability to do that.

Although City dominated possession, the visitors endured "a really tough game", with City clinging on to a one-goal lead with only two minutes of normal time remaining after Padraig Amond, capitalising on a mistake by Aymeric Laporte, lobbed Ederson.

Newport had beaten Leeds United, Leicester City and Middlesbrough, as well as drawing with Tottenham Hotspur, at Rodney Parade in the last 14 months, and they again emerged with credit for frustrating City for long periods.

These days as Champions - with a superstar team - and a superstar manager to boot, we are the one side everybody dreams of drawing. We scored straight after they did and it is always good to take the pressure off and get the goal.

"We are still in all competitions and we want to keep fighting for every one - and hopefully we can win them all".

The League Two outfit gave the Premier League champions the briefest of scares with their 88th-minute reply before two late goals, the last of them coming from Riyad Mahrez secured City their quarter-final spot.

"We're going to try". They showed us how incredible they are and a big compliment for them. "We had to show professionalism and keep the ball moving and they exhausted in the end".

"I've been around the first team for a year now".

"It was a hard pitch and we kept playing our football and our quality shone through".

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

"I'm disappointed that we've lost the game and we're out of the cup, but in years to come that's going to be something I'm very proud of", Amond said.
