Burton's Clough believes stopping Guardiola's City, particularly when they travel to the Etihad on Wednesday, is a tough task.

Those who turned up were treated to a ruthless performance from City, who took a 4-0 lead inside the first half thanks to a Gabriel Jesus brace and a fortuitous strike from Oleksandr Zinchenko.

Guardiola admitted they have already secured a spot in next month's Carabao Cup final after securing his joint-highest victory as a manager in the first leg.

Despite the 9-0 scoreline, City's fans were keen for more goals as chants of "we want 10" rang around the ground before the final whistle.

We've not gone into any detail with them (the players) because that will frighten the life out of them.

"If you ease off you don't have respect. In this incredible schedule, we have a little bit of a break in that week to prepare for the other competitions". But Clough said the top clubs in the country have moved on leaps and bounds since then and the comparisons - particularly going into a two-legged tie - are irrelevant.


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.

"I watched them play Liverpool and they were pretty frightening at times", he said.

"They have the best youngsters in the country at the moment, so whichever team they play has quality". Manchester City take on Burnley and Crystal Palace entertain Tottenham in another all-Premier League tie, while AFC Wimbledon, who have reached the fourth round for first time in the new club's history, will take on West Ham. When Wigan put us out of the FA Cup last season I was sad. "We will take it seriously".

And though his side could face as many as 65 fixtures if they went all the way in the cups, Guardiola said he would rather be fighting on multiple fronts as he believes momentum can apply across all competitions.

Arsenal are set to host Manchester United on the 26th of January [TBD] at home just a week after they host Maurizio Sarri's Chelsea in the league.
