"The only problem I have with Phil is one, he has to compete with Kevin De Bruyne, Ilkay Gundogan, David Silva and Bernardo Silva", Guardiola told a news conference.

Eliaquim Mangala, who has not played all season after a knee injury suffered on loan at Everton a year ago, has also returned to training. However, they've won just one of their last six FA Cup away games against sides from a lower division (D4 L1), losing their last such game against Wigan. And our team duly obliged by leaving us at halftime with a game hanging on a knife edge.

"He has the mentality and ability to score goals when he is near the box".

City had far from an easy ride against the Welsh side, who kept them goalless in the first half, but as soon as Leroy Sane broke the deadlock on 51 minutes, the result was never in doubt.

Pep Guardiola's side didn't have an easy ride in a full-blooded fifth round tie against a team 82 places below them in League Two.

Amond played for Shamrock Rovers and Sligo Rovers in the League of Ireland before embarking on a career in England, playing for Accrington Stanley, Morecambe, Grimbsy Town and Hartlepool before arriving at Newport.

Speaking with BT Sport after the match, Guardiola conceded that it was a very tough game for his players but insisted they made the right adjustments to win.

"We had to show professionalism and keep the ball moving and they exhausted in the end".

"We knew they would tire and they did in the end". Today we played here against a League 2 team, in four days we go to the biggest stage in the Champions League, but that is what it is.

"We are Premier League footballers so we can handle any pitch", Foden said.

"We scored straight after they did and it is always good to take the pressure off and get the goal".

The 21-year-old was instrumental to Wolves' record-breaking title-winning exploits in the English Championship last season and he has continued that form into this campaign.

"We are still in four competitions and we accept all the challenges", said Guardiola.
