Brazil global Gabriel Jesus grabbed four goals for a rampant City, while Kevin De Bruyne, Oleksandr Zinchenko, Phil Foden, Riyad Mahrez and Kyle Walker also got on the scoresheet. While he remembers Maine Road and a training ground in Moss Side which was open to the public, Clough admitted he has never set foot in the Etihad Stadium while the ground at City's training complex has a higher capacity than Burton's own Pirelli Stadium. After the second and third goal, it was easier, we were faster and quicker.

We've not gone into any detail with them (the players) because that will frighten the life out of them. "If you are 4-0 up and forget to continue, you don't have respect for the competition or your opponent".

City continued their prolific goal-scoring record against the hapless Burton Albion in the League Cup semi-final first-leg. It goes without saying that City are overwhelming favourites to make the final once again but you can forgive the visitors and their supporters if they dare to dream. "In this incredible schedule, we have a little bit of a break in that week to prepare for the other competitions". They beat mythical teams - like Aston Villa and Middlesbrough.

"I told them that front five, if they reach the Champions League semi-final, will give Real Madrid or whoever they play a problem".

The temporary ceasefire came after the two sides imposed import duties on more than US$300 billion of each other's goods. US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo insisted that sanctions should be enforced "vigorously and without fail".

"Do I wish we hadn't played?"

"We didn't expect anything less given the gulf in class between the teams, we actually feared it could be more", said Clough, a two-time League Cup victor as a player under his father Brian Clough at Nottingham Forest.

Zinchenko's strike was his first for City, though whether or not he actually meant it is a matter of debate - the 22-year-old Ukrainian flooping a lofty cross-cum-shot Burton 'keeper Bradley Collins from the edge of the area.

"But we still have an outside chance of achieving a miracle, and that's what we'll try for".
