Manchester City thrash 3rd-tier Burton 9-0 in League Cup semifinal

Manchester City thrash 3rd-tier Burton 9-0 in League Cup semifinal

Pep Guardiola said Manchester City showed Burton Albion "respect" by continuing to attack on their way to a devastating 9-0 victory.

Son of legendary manager Brian Clough, who led Nottingham Forrest to win two European Cups, Clough was in his first spell in charge when Burton, then in English football's fifth tier, held a Manchester United boasting Cristiano Ronaldo and Wayne Rooney 0-0 in the FA Cup in 2006.

"If you ease off you don't have respect".

"One-against-one absolutely we are better with Vincent".

"The result was good and of course we are already in the final but we have to play the second leg", said Guardiola. Ilkay Gundogan clipped the ball over the top of the Burton defence and David Silva squared it to Jesus who, after taking a couple of touches to steady himself in front of goal, steered it into the bottom corner with little fuss.

Goals from Kun Aguero and Leroy Sane gave Guardiola's side a narrow win which brought them to within 4 points of the Premier League leaders in a closely fought game on January 3.

It also includes references to these same heroes throughout the game's version of New York City including the Avengers Tower and Doctor Strange's Sanctum Santorum.

"We are not a team that have a lot of titles in our museum so every chance to make a final you have to take".

Liverpool legend Jamie Carragher responded to a dig from a City supporter by tweeting: "You can't fill your Stadium!"

"The only way is to take it seriously". We could do better with one or two but the gulf of the two teams is far too much to comprehend. When Wigan put us out of the FA Cup last season I was sad. "He is so important". Guardiola's options have been cut with the departure of Carabao Cup regular Brahim Diaz to Real Madrid this week, but the strength in depth available to him means there is unlikely to be much good news for Burton when the team-sheets are distributed.

'He said we have to keep going in the same way and same spirit, ' Zinchenko said. "Manchester City might score more goals than than [sic] there are spectators tonight", the former England striker tweeted.

'We're talking about United, Arsenal and Chelsea bridging the gap. we've got no chance. There's even a case to made that getting to this stage is up there with what he has done in his managerial career, previously, but he's a competitor and despite everything being stacked against he and his players, Clough will not see this as just a case of turning up and being grateful they have reached this stage.
