Clough urges Burton to savour experience as they chase Man City upset

Burton Albion respond after upcoming opponents Man City thrash Rotherham 7-0

"They have the best youngsters in the country at the moment, so whichever team they play has quality". Against Rotherham, for example, we played with nine players who didn't play against Liverpool and the nine were a good selection. He has insisted his side go out and give a proper account of themselves in the match, and to respect a competition he won twice as a player. "We will take it seriously". They certainly didn't patronise their opponents by easing off and behaved in a professional manner by aiming to score as many goals as possible.

ESPN's Mark Ogden was not too impressed with City continuing to bombard the Burton defence until the final whistle.

"I prefer it, definitely", he said. They are now enjoying a four game unbeaten run in all competitions, while only Chelsea have won at the Amex since mid-September.

Defending champions City's place in next month's final is all but secured even before the return leg of the last-four clash after Gabriel Jesus scored four goals in Wednesday's rout.

Put simply then, if you don't fancy Bournemouth to beat Everton then it's highly likely that Eddie Howe's men will concede at last two or three goals.

I feel sure we'll see a bit of a goalfest at Goodison Park on Sunday when Everton host struggling Bournemouth in what should be a very entertaining affair. "That's what we have done and that's why we are pleased". Guardiola's options have been cut with the departure of Carabao Cup regular Brahim Diaz to Real Madrid this week, but the strength in depth available to him means there is unlikely to be much good news for Burton when the team-sheets are distributed. "The only thing we can make the players aware of is the runs their players make, but making them aware and stopping them are two different things".

Man City will hope to continue their terrific form and close the gap on league leaders Liverpool when Wolves visit the Etihad on Monday. "Not at all, we have made history in getting this far", he said. We kept going right to the end, they were shouting: "We want 10". Some of the youngsters have had an experience that you can't buy. When you have high intensity for 90 minutes they [drop] and that's why after the third and fourth goals it was easier.
