Manchester City smash seven past Rotherham, Oldham dump Fulham out

League Two Newport County have knocked the Premier League's Leicester City out of the FA Cup with a 2-1 win at a sold-out Rodney Parade.

Newport had led for the majority of the game following Jamille Matt's towering early header, but Rachid Ghezzal had struck a spectacular equaliser for the away side eight minutes from the end.

Padraig Amond's 85th-minute penalty fired the Welsh side into the fourth round as 2-1 winners, after Mark Albrighton was guilty of a needless handball in the area.

Puel has faced pressure in recent weeks and though it was eased by impressive festive wins against Chelsea and Manchester City, the 2-1 defeat to Sky Bet League Two minnows will do him no favours.

There was no so-called "giant-killing" at Manchester City's Etihad Stadium, though, with the Premier League champions sweeping aside second-tier Rotherham in a 7-0 win in Pep Guardiola's biggest victory in charge of the club.

Poor old Ipswich Town, who have gone out in the third round nine times since 2009.

In the second-half Gabriel Jesus, Mahrez, Nicolas Otamendi and substitute Leroy Sane completed the rout, with Ilkay Gundogan registering four assists.

Denis Odoi put the Cottagers ahead but Oldham battled back with goals from Sam Surridge and Callum Lang.

Flynn added: "It's nearly Roy of the Rovers stuff, I can't believe it". "I am the most proud man in Oldham, I can't believe it".

Sheffield United began the day 84 places above Barnet but were outplayed by their lowly opponents for whom former Tottenham trainee Shaquile Coulthirst won it with a 21st-minute penalty after Richard Stearman brought down Ephron Mason-Clark.

Victory was particularly sweet for Currie whose uncle Tony was an England global and was so revered as a player at Sheffield United that a stand at the club's Bramall Lane home is named in his honour.

"They also play rugby on this pitch as well so I don't know if the pitch is good to play football". There were one or two scary moments but we came through it.
