Upsets galore in FA Cup

Upsets galore in FA Cup

Leicester City suffered the shock of the FA Cup third round on Sunday as Padraig Amond's late penalty secured a famous win for Newport County.

Puel saw his side beat Chelsea, Manchester City and Everton - while losing to Cardiff City - over the festive period, and his decision to make seven changes backfired when Jamille Matt marked an outstanding display by heading home in the 10th minute from Robbie Willmott's pinpoint cross.

Key Leicester players Kasper Schmeichel, Harry Maguire, Wilfred Ndidi and Jamie Vardy were left out of the starting line-up, but a back four of Danny Simpson, Wes Morgan, Jonny Evans and Christian Fuchs played the game.

Newport's only previous FA Cup meeting with Leicester was their first-ever match in the competition proper - they lost 0-2 in a replay in the 1919-20 campaign.

Woking's adventure ended in disappointment, however, as the sixth-tier club, the lowest-ranked survivors, succumbed 2-0 at home to Premier League Watford.

"It is one you have to savour", Oldham boss Pete Wild said.

The company said the auto will have around 395 hp (294 kW / 400 PS) and a range of approximately 300 miles (482 km). You can expect to see orders open up after the Polestar 1 launches; that auto starts production later in 2019.


Bidwell then headed in the victor with 15 minutes to go from a set-piece.

"I'm so proud of the players", Newport manager Michael Fylnn told BBC Wales.

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 worldwide 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. I feel really proud.

"It's because I know the qualities they've got, we've just gone and beaten the Premier League champions from two years ago". Gabriel Jesus, Riyad Mahrez, Nicolas Otamendi and Leroy Sane completed the rout.
