Burton Albion respond after upcoming opponents Man City thrash Rotherham 7-0

Manchester City host Burton in the first leg of their Carabao Cup semi-final on Wednesday night.

Of course, City added five more goals in the second half. The holders pushed for double figures at the end, but had to settle for just the nine goals to take into the second leg. Checkout our breakdown of the game below.

"The only way is to take it seriously".

Ilkay Gundogan and Silva combined to set up Jesus' second, which the Brazilian fired in off a post, and Zinchenko made it 4-0 at half-time when his cross from the left fortuitously flew into the top corner. "He said: 'Come in for a glass of wine.' I hope he's got more than a glass", said the visiting manager, who insists his side will use the return leg in a fortnight to celebrate reaching the last four. He has insisted his side go out and give a proper account of themselves in the match, and to respect a competition he won twice as a player. Although young Eric Garcia did not put a foot wrong, he was rarely involved in the action and you could be excused if you forgot the youngster was on the park.

"We spoke about travelling to Burton with as big an advantage as possible but we didn't expect this".

"We've not gone into any detail with them because that will frighten the life out of them", admitted Clough. Burton have had an incredible tournament.

Having tasted back to back defeats against Crystal Palace and Leicester in the Premier League, Pep Guardiola's men have bounced back with three wins in a row, beating Southampton, Liverpool in the league and most recently thrashing Rotherham United 7-0 in the FA Cup.

"It's the first time I've played in a win like this", he told reporters.

The Premier League match between Bournemouth and Chelsea has been moved back 24 hours to Wednesday, January 30 because of fixture congestion. They have enjoyed a special run to get this far with victories over Aston Villa, Burnley, Nottingham Forest and Middlesbrough - and though a two-legged tie is firmly against them, they will not go down without a fight.

The Gunners dispatched League 1 Blackpool 3-0 at Bloomfield Road on Saturday, while United saw off Championship relegation threatened Reading 2-0 at home.
