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.

Newport had led for the majority of the game following Jamille Matt's towering early header, but Rachid Ghezzal had struck a spectacular equaliser for the away side eight minutes from the end.

The Frenchman was criticised for fielding a weakened side in the Carabao Cup quarter-final defeat to Manchester City last month, and he made seven changes to his team in south Wales.

In the second-half Gabriel Jesus, Mahrez, Nicolas Otamendi and substitute Leroy Sane completed the rout, with Ilkay Gundogan registering four assists.

Flynn added: "It's nearly Roy of the Rovers stuff, I can't believe it".

Text message to inform Saudi women of divorce
Having said that, there is a long way to go as many of their rights are still restricted to having a male guardianship system. A court ruling came into effect on Sunday requiring Saudi men to notify their wives before divorcing them.

Defender Denis Odoi gave Fulham the lead shortly after halftime, before loan striker Sam Surridge levelled from the spot in the 76th minute.

Fulham were awarded a soft penalty but Alexsandar Mitrovic, brought off the bench to take the kick, had his effort superbly saved by a Danish keeper Daniel Iversen.

Oldham came from behind to win 2-1 at Fulham, a new low for the team managed by Claudio Ranieri which is fighting relegation in the Premier League.

"It´s unbelievable - that´s the only word I have at the minute", said Barnet captain Callum Reynolds after the north London club´s triumph.

City will be joined in the hat for the fourth round by Watford, who saw off sixth-tier Woking thanks to goals from Will Hughes and Troy Deeney.

This edition marks the first time Barnet have made the fourth round since 2008 when they lost to Bristol Rovers, and will now have their sights firmly set on reaching the last 16 for the first time ever.

Despite the surprise cup exit, Puel also revealed there were no plans for the Foxes to strengthen in the current transfer window, and urged his side to refocus for their Premier League game against Southampton.

Elsewhere, League One Doncaster enjoyed a superb 3-1 away win at Championship side Preston.

Yankees: How will the signing of Troy Tulowitzki affect Manny Machado?
The deal for the free agent infielder was reportedly too good to pass up for the Yankees as it was a win-win situation for them. They will pay the majority of his $20 million contract, with the Yankees responsible only for the league-minimum $555,000.
