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.

Jesus tapped to make it three and Zinchenko’s curler put City four up.

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.
