Guardiola was quick to shower praise on the 18-year-old Foden, describing the England prospect as "brilliant".

"It was a really tough game and it was lucky that Phil got the third goal", Guardiola, whose side are still chasing silverware on four fronts, said. Today was a good test for him, and this will be good for him.

"The first 20 minutes were hard from throw-ins 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, " Guardiola said.

The score goalless at half-time, the Premier League champions opened the scoring early in the second half through Leroy Sane.

They held Manchester City for 51 minutes before losing Saturday's fifth-round tie 4-1, having already beaten Leicester and Middlesbrough this term. City didn't have the personnel to cope with it so their plan was to give the opponents as few opportunities as possible to get the ball into the box, which they did more successfully in the second half.

But Guardiola said that he loved the experience, from the Newport crowd's faux-hostility to the different style of opposition that his players had to deal with.

'Football is not always playing on the biggest stages and on good surfaces. We had to adapt, and it can only help us be a better team.

"We don't talk about winning four trophies, not at all", added Guardiola, whose side now face a week that will include a Champions League last-16 game against Schalke in Germany and the Carabao Cup final against Chelsea at Wembley next Sunday.

'I am quite surprised with the atmosphere. "The support for the team was incredible, chanting: 'Who are you, who are you?'"

Newport County are hoping to pull off the 'biggest FA Cup shock of all time' according to their manager Michael Flynn and they will be looking to eek out any advantage they can as they take on the team top of the Premier League.

Just when Newport looked written off, in the 88th minute, Amond chipped Ederson for a consolation goal for the League Two side.

Newport's cup run is now over for another season, but they have made more than £1 million from it and kept themselves firmly on the football map. "I said to the lads, 'I'm so proud of you, you deserve all the plaudits'".

"Also the backroom staff, I can sort them out as well".

The first real chance of the game came in the sixth minute from Amond, who has scored in every round of the campaign so far this season.

'I was buzzing at half time, especially after watching them (against Chelsea) last week. "They were better than us in long-ball situations, but in the second half we adjusted with some movement".

But Pep Guardiola didn't want to make that an excuse.
