Leicester manager Claude Puel frustrated by Newport FA Cup upset

Jamaican striker Jamille Matt said it was a "fantastic feeling" after his powerful early header helped set up League Two Newport County's shock 2-1 English FA Cup third-round win over visiting Premier League outfit Leicester City on Sunday, describing it as "right at the top".

Newport, who took Tottenham Hotspur to a replay previous year, held on to beat a top-flight side for the first time since 1964.

But Barnet ensured there would be a non-league presence in the fourth round with a 1-0 win away to second-tier Championship club Sheffield United.

However, in the league, his side have registered wins against Chelsea, Manchester City and Everton during the festive period.

Amond buried the decisive penalty five minutes from time.

Critical was Kerber's ability to convert all 4 of her break points during the match, while Bencic was only successful on two of 7. After overpowering a stubborn Ebden, Zverev said he and Kerber were motivated by last year's loss in the final.

Fulham manager Claudio Ranieri, explained his decision to have Mitrovic take the spot-kick by saying: "I said to him to shoot the penalty because he's our man to shoot the penalty".

The FA Cup has lost some sheen in recent years but Oldham and Barnet, along with third-tier Gillingham who beat top-flight Cardiff City on Saturday, revived the magic.

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

Oldham keeper Daniel Ivarsen then saved a spot-kick from Aleksandar before Callum Lang netted a dramatic late victor.

Elsewhere, Barnet of the National League beat high flying Championship side Sheffield United while Accrington knocked out Ipswich.

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.

"(Sheffield United manager) Chris Wilder said we deserved it too.

Prevailing nevertheless, Amond took particular joy in overcoming the attempts of one Leicester player who was determined to upset the Irishman's rhythm. "I am proud as punch of the boys".

The other City scorers were Raheem Sterling, Phil Foden, Gabriel Jesus, Riyad Mahrez and Nicolas Otamendi, while there was also an own-goal by Semi Ajayi.
