Newport County have arguably enjoyed more success in cup competitions than any other lower league side over the last decade, with famous wins over the likes of Brighton and Leeds United, a draw against Tottenham in 2018 and pushing Manchester City into the final minutes in 2019 — and that’s just scratching the surface.

Next, they’ll try their luck up against a Man Utd side that continue to flounder this season, sitting eighth in the Premier League and enduring a run of just three wins in their last 11 games across all competitions; one of which came against League One Wigan.
