Guardiola proud of ‘incredible’ City after Newport win

Guardiola proud of ‘incredible’ City after Newport win

Originally expected to face Manchester United on the 16th of March, the Citizens will now have to wait for at least another three weeks to play their local rivals as the existing date coincides with the FA Cup quarter-final fixtures.

"I'm very happy at City and for now I don't even think about leaving".

But City's class showed in the second half with Foden at the fore of most of the Premier League champions' attacking enterprise. We thought the game was done but they scored a goal at the end, we were lucky Phil [Foden] scored an incredible third goal that helped us not suffer in the last five minutes or extra time.

Several County players have appeared as if they could perform regularly at a higher level, none more so than Irish striker Amond whose late chip gave him a goal in every round.

At times during the first half Guardiola's City slickers, who put six goals past Chelsea last week, appeared decidedly uncomfortable under a barrage of long throw-ins. I am surprised they are in the position they are.

"Everything is going well at the moment and we can definitely win every competition, but it is going to be hard".

City led through Leroy Sane's 51st-minute opener before Foden's run and finish made it 2-0, and another fine strike from the 18-year-old restored their two-goal lead a minute after Padraig Amond halved the deficit.

Wins over Leicester and Middlesbrough furthered a giant-killing reputation established last season when Leeds were beaten at Rodney Parade and Tottenham were held before a Wembley replay was lost 2-0.

Again, I'm not asking these questions because I have the answers, but I would like to know all the same. Or they might not happen at all - but at least there's proof that Respawn are thinking about them.

It was a real tough game.

"We are in four competitions - every game is completely different".

"We know that he's a guy who (is) close to the box and has this mentality to score goals, and he has the ability to do that".

"Today we spoke about that". "Today we play League Two and then we go to Champions League". We have to adapt to everything. "Sometimes it's easier to play against Arsenal and Chelsea and in the Champions League". The result will be shown at the end and now we have to recover and prepare for our trip to Germany.

"I'm ready to go and I'm trying to make my point".

The BBC and other "so called" national treasures in the media spend every second talking up the nostalgic power and importance of the FA Cup - the premium domestic trophy on offer in the competition.

"We will see in May and June how we do, but it is important to be there in all competitions in February".
