No excuses from Leicester City boss Puel after humiliating FA Cup exit

No excuses from Leicester City boss Puel after humiliating FA Cup exit

Premier League sides Fulham and Leicester City have been knocked out of the FA Cup, losing to fourth-division sides Oldham Athletic and Newport County 2-1 in the third round on Monday (NZ time).

Later in the day, Newport County, 13th in League Two, beat Leicester City 2-1.

Leicester's inconsistencies under Claude Puel continued as the Foxes were humbled by the Exiles.

Huddersfield Town and Cardiff were dumped out by lower league opposition on Saturday and fellow Premier League relegation candidates Fulham followed suit, with Claudio Ranieri's side suffering a humiliating home defeat to Oldham.

Leicester, seventh in the Premier League after recent wins over Manchester City and Chelsea, eventually broke through in the 82nd minute as Ghezzal hammered a ferocious shot past keeper Joe Day who moments earlier had denied Kelechi Iheanacho.

Padraig Amond's 85th-minute penalty secured Newport's first FA Cup win over top-flight opponents since 1964 and started the inquest into Leicester's latest cup blow. Pete Wild only took charge as caretaker manager in the wake of Frankie Bunn's sacking 10 days ago, and saw his side go behind when Denis Odoi hammered home.

Apple warns investors to expect weaker profit, blaming China's worsening economy
Investors learned of the news in a letter sent to them by chief executive Tim Cook on Wednesday afternoon (New York time). Slowing sales in China isn't Apple's only problem - results have been less than stellar in other markets as well.

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

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.

Manchester City have scored seven goals in an FA Cup tie for the first time since they beat Reading 7-0 in January 1968.

The upset looked to have been averted but for Marc Albrighton to raise an arm to block a cross to give away a penalty that Padraig Amond slotted away superbly with five minutes left to hang on for a famous win.

The Championship's leading three clubs are now all out of the FA Cup, with Sheffield United and Leeds both suffering defeats. "You have to try to get in the players' heads".
