Manchester City 9-0 Burton

Manchester City 9-0 Burton: Gabriel Jesus scores FOUR as Pep Guardiola’s side build insurmountable lead over League One side in Carabao Cup semi-final

  • Gabriel Jesus doubled their lead with a close range header before adding a third just a few moments later
  • Oleksandr Zinchenko scored City’s fourth before the break with a looping effort that dropped into the net
  • Jesus then completed his hat-trick in the second half with another routine header from inside the box
  • Phil Foden scored his second goal inside four days after coming on as a substitute before Jesus added a fourth
  • Defender Kyle Walker made it 8-0 with a thumping finish and then Riyad Mahrez finally got on the score sheet

So much for the romance of the cup. Three days after sticking seven past Rotherham in the FA Cup, Manchester City killed off their Carabao Cup semi-final with Burton Albion last night without the need for a second leg.

The holders go the Pirelli Stadium in a fortnight not so much to finish the job as go through a formality after a thoroughly ruthless display against the League One underdogs.

Credit to Pep Guardiola’s side for doing their work so effectively, and in particular Gabriel Jesus who scored four goals. David Silva was excellent again too.
