– Cheltenham Town vs Manchester City’s FA Cup clash ended in favour of the Premier League side
– The hosts took the lead in the 59th minute but Guardiola’s men replied with three goals before the game ended
– City are now through to the fifth round of the competition awaiting their next opponent
Three late goals from Phil Foden, Gabriel Jesus, and Ferran Torres were all Manchester City needed to come from a goal down and beat Cheltenham Town in their FA Cup fourth-round game.
Alfie May broke the deadlock a minute before the hour mark after both sides failed to find the back of the net in the opening half.
The 27-year-old Englishman fired home from close-range after benefiting from a ball that came off the back of so many players inside City’s 18-yeard box.
However, they could not hold on to the lead beyond the 81st minute after Joao Cancelo set up the midfielder for an equaliser.
