#MCIBUR: Manchester City 9 Burton Albion 0 (Watch All Goals)
Manchester City scored nine goals without reply, four from Gabriel Jesus, as League One Burton were swept aside 9-0 in the Carabao Cup semifinal first leg at the Etihad Stadium.
The Premier League champions have now put 16 goals past lower-league opposition in the past four days, Pep Guardiola’s men having thrashed Rotherham United 7-0 in the FA Cup on Sunday.
Holders City took just five minutes to get going through Kevin de Bruyne’s header from a David Silva cross, before Gabriel Jesus doubled their lead on the half hour for the first of his four goals with a header of his own from close range.
City made it five after 57 minutes when Jesus headed in to complete a hat trick after Silva and Mahrez combined to set him up.
Jesus took his tally to four either side of Phil Foden’s tap-in, before Kyle Walker and Riyad Mahrez completed a miserable night for Burton’s cup heroes.
The second leg, merely just a formality, takes place at the Pirelli Stadium on Wednesday, 23 January, with the final at Wembley Stadium on Sunday, 24 February.
