Manchester City showed Burton Albion 'respect' in 9-0 win - Pep Guardiola

Wednesday's meeting will be first encounter between Manchester City and Burton Albion.

Some were surprised when Guardiola named such a strong team against third-tier opposition, but the selection comprehensively paid off as City virtually guaranteed themselves a spot in the final at Wembley Stadium.

'A feeling of we can't wait for Gillingham on Saturday, ' said Clough when asked how he felt about the game. But we're facing similar sorts of tasks.

Clough continued: "But away from home, it's a different thing".

"It's the best way to respect the competition and respect the opponents", Guardiola said. Without that competition, if we had just one competition to play in, I could play with the same 11 or same 12.

This led to a rather cheeky tweet from Match of the Day host Gary Lineker, who couldn't resist taking a dig at the number of empty seats inside the Etihad Stadium. They know exactly how good they are.

Of course, the company could also launch multiple versions of the new iPhone as it did this year with three independent models. The 3D camera would be able to create 3D depth maps by measuring the time it takes light to bounce off things in a scene.

Pep Guardiola recorded the second 9-0 win of his managerial career on Wednesday as Manchester City thrashed Burton Albion in the EFL Cup.

Clough also masterminded Sheffield United's run to the last four of both the League and FA Cups when in League One in two seasons at Bramall Lane between 2013 and 2015.

Burton boss Nigel Clough had no complaints about the result and said his side could not have done more to stop the thoroughly ruthless Premier League champions. And we stopped them, that's a positive for us.

After setting up Walker for City's eighth, Mahrez completed Burton's misery with a goal of his own, the Algeria worldwide poking the ball past Collins to round out a one-sided semi-final encounter. "That's why we had several thousands supporters here celebrating the fact we'll probably never be here again". "I like to be in the four competitions as far as possible".

As Clough paid tribute to City's attacking quintet of Gabriel Jesus, Riyad Mahrez, Leroy Sané, Kevin De Bruyne and David Silva, Guardiola referenced Clough's late father, Brian, who is considered one of the greatest domestic managers.

"I would like to have two months' holiday right now, definitely - this month is really tough, but it is what it is. That's what we have done and that's why we are pleased".
