Adjust Comment Print

City are a whopping 15 points clear at the top of the Premier League table and were handed a highly winnable last-16 tie against Basel in the Champions League's first knockout round.

At the Etihad, Manchester City are just 1/8 (1.12) to get the better of their Championship visitors. albeit Bristol City did spring a huge shock in the quarter finals by dumping out City's local rivals at Ashton gate.

The Gunners crashed out of the FA Cup on Sunday afternoon, a competition that Arsene Wenger's men have dominated in recent years winning three of the last four finals.

"My priority is the next one - tomorrow", Guardiola said before the game and he was true to his word with Nicolas Otamendi, Raheem Sterling, Leroy Sane, Sergio Aguero and Fernandinho all starting, while Claudio Bravo and Oleksandr Zinchenko were given rare starts too. Going into the game against the Clarets, a place at Wembley was a minimum of five matches away - ignoring the nightmare scenario of replays.

"David is a legend for the club, what he's done".

Guardiola has rotated his squad for the League Cup, using a blend of youngsters and fringe players, and they have been taken to penalties in the last two rounds. He made the statement.

City continue to win regardless of the competition.

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.

Thereafter the home side, with a few changes but a host of stars on show, had plenty in hand and they ran out convincing winners in the end, keeping alive their hopes of a domestic clean sweep.

"We've got a lot of respect for them - they have an unbelievable team with an awesome manager - but it's a massive opportunity to make a special moment again". Kevin De Bruyne is likely to play some part having started on the bench against Burnley and Yaya Toure may also feature. First Sane drilled a delightful third before making the most of Nick Pope's horrendous misjudgement to set up Bernardo Silva for the fourth.

"I've watched the highlights", Gundogan said. We want to try to have the ideal result in the first one.

"The mood amongst us before the game was that we could make a bit of history and when we scored the first goal I felt confident we could win it even when they equalised".
