Man City avoid FA Cup banana skin as three late goals see them scrape past League Two Cheltenham

Three late goals spared Pep Guardiola from arguably the most humiliating result in his managerial career as Manchester City beat Cheltenham Town 3-1 in the FA Cup.
City’s defence was breached for the first time in 509 minutes of football as Alfie May gave the League Two side a shock lead in the second half.
