Carabao Cup: ‘Hungry’ City tear Burton Albion apart

Manchester City are hungry for more success after taking a closer step to yet another final with a comprehensive 9-0 thrashing of Burton Albion in their semifinal first leg.

Brazilian forward, Gabriel Jesus, was the star of the evening, helping himself to four goals against the helpless League One outfit.

Jesus netted a brace in either half in what was a very one sided affair at the Etihad stadium.

Other scorer for City include Kevin De Bruyne, Oleksandr Zinchenko, Phil Foden, Kyle Walker and former African player of the year, Algerian, Riyad Mahrez.

After the game, City manager, Pep Guardiola was full of praise for his opposite number, Nigel Clough and his Albion side, but was quick to add that the Cityzens are hungry for more titles.

“He (Nigel Clough) is incredible,” he said. “His father has showed him some tricks. You know better than me what he means, he respects football and is charismatic. It’s an honour to play against his team. Big congrats to Burton, they deserved to be here.”

“We don’t have a lot of titles in our museum, so, every time we have the chance to be in final we have to take it and be hungry,” he added.

Burton will host City at the Pirelli Stadium for their second leg which comes up on January 23.
