Manchester City scored three times in the last 10 minutes as they came from behind to beat fourth-tier Cheltenham Town in the FA Cup on Saturday. 

Alfie May gave the home side a shock lead at Whaddon Road just before the hour mark. 

Cheltenham managed to held City at bay until the final minutes but Pep Guardiola's side finally levelled in the 81st minute through Phil Foden. 

With the home side's resilience broken two goals quickly followed, with Gabriel Jesus and Ferran Torres completing the win for the Premier League side. 

City will travel to Swansea City in the last 16 after the Welsh side hammered Nottingham Forest 5-1 on Saturday to reach the fifth round.
