FA Cup: Aguero hits brace in Manchester City hammering of Burnley

Image PA

Trailing 1-0 at half-time to Sean Dyche's gritty and stubborn side that has conceded on average less than a goal a game in the Premier League, a showpiece FA Cup final next May seemed like the "illusion" Guardiola had described.

Quizzed on the competition's standing in his thoughts, Guardiola said: "So important - a win helps to win more".

It is likely that there will be a few more fringe players involved against Bristol City.

A victory that, should it happen, could be the first trophy of an historic quadruple for the club who are still fighting on all fronts and are favourites to win all three domestic titles, plus the Champions League after a relatively kind last 16 draw against Basel.

Manchester City have a massive game in the Premier League this Sunday when they travel to Anfield to take on Liverpool.

Yet despite that, Guardiola named a strong side.

"What he has done so far is awesome", said Guardiola.

"David is a legend for the club for what he has done", Guardiola said. He made the statement.

"What they have done in the Premier League so far is incredible". Raheem Sterling is top scorer for Manchester City at the moment, the former Liverpool winger has found the net 14 times in his 20 league appearances so far this season.

There was an early penalty appeal from Manchester City when Aguero was brought down at the edge of the area - with the foul being judged to have been made outside the box - and the resultant free-kick from Gundogan was blocked.

And they were ahead in the 25th minute when Ashley Barnes pounced on John Stones' uncharacteristic error to blast a shot past Bravo.

Bristol City may be focusing all their efforts on the Carabao Cup (formerly the EFL Cup) since their league form has nose dived in recent weeks. "They'e probably one of, it not the best, side in the world at the moment". "We made changes, we've got to protect the team at the minute with injuries, and once they're in front, it's hard", he added. Kevin De Bruyne is likely to play some part having started on the bench against Burnley and Yaya Toure may also feature. He then set up recently-arrived Bernardo towards the end.

The Carabao Cup (League Cup to the rest of us) has already been one of the more freaky elements to the 2017/18 season, with draws taking place a ungodly times of the morning in the far east or in some cases not at all.

"We play the first leg here at home, so, of course, we want to win that game".
