Man City obliterates Burton Albion 9-0 in Carabao Cup

Manchester City did not disrespect Burton despite thrashing them 9-0 and it would have been unprofessional if they had reduced their intensity, says Danny Higginbotham.

"With the quality of the runs they make and the delivery of the ball, Premier League teams and the best in Europe can't stop them, so I don't know what little Burton Albion are going to do stop them".

"One against one, absolutely we're better when Vincent plays".

Oleksandr Zinchenko, Phil Foden, Kyle Walker and Riyad Mahrez all got on the score-sheet as they battered the League One outfit nine-nil. "We have one day off and then prepare for the game".

It really is a complete mismatch when you look at any possible angle between these two teams.

"It's the best way to respect the competition and respect the opponents", Guardiola said.

But Liverpool, who sit four points clear of City, have only the league and Champions League to worry about after a much-weakened side were knocked out of the FA Cup by Wolves on Monday.

"We'll celebrate, it's not about tonight: it's about Burton Albion getting to the semi-final".

"Do I wish we hadn't played?"

"Burton have had an incredible tournament. We will take it seriously".

The January transfer window is open and managers are working hard on strengthening their squads and identifying targets for the summer so we'll keep you up-to-date with the latest rumours.

"Do I wish we hadn't played?"

The result was the heaviest League Cup defeat by any side since Liverpool beat Fulham 10-0 back in September 1986. We didn't expect to score so many goals but it is good because we are in the final, that's nice and to come back again means a lot for us.

This Premier League season is on course to be the highest scoring in the English top flight in more than half a century and much of it is down to teams using data to inform their players' in-game decisions.

"It's not very pleasant when you're on the other end of it but that's what they're capable of". They have already made history - can they continue doing so?! The one we seen on Sunday who are on their game and irresistible, but they have also thrown in a couple of well below-par performances.
