Ashley Barnes claims Burnley "finished after 10 minute spell" against Manchester City

Gundogan pleased with result after combining with Aguero to sink Burnley

Gundogan pleased with result after combining with Aguero to sink Burnley

Aguero scored twice in the 4-1 win.

"I think we are so happy with what he has done", he said. By the end it was another emphatic win for the runway leaders in the Premier League but this FA Cup victory wasn't as straightforward as the scoreline suggests.

City's own semifinal is just three days away against Championship high-flyers Bristol City, which is quickly followed by a trip to Anfied to face Liverpool in what could be potentially their biggest test left in the Premier League.

"First of all I have to say its an honour for me to have Sergio Aguero under my command", he said.

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

That flashpoint was a rare moment of concern for Guardiola and City on an afternoon in which they stormed back after trailing to Ashley Barnes' first half goal.

Burnley have received much praise for the results that they have attained so far this season and it will be intriguing to see whether Sean Dyche's side can continue to perform so effectively in the remainder of the campaign. The only blip away to top-six sides this season was a 3-0 defeat at the Etihad in October.

City weren't at their best in the first half against Burnley who contained their attacking threat comfortably and took the lead after Ashley Barnes capitalised on an error by John Stones. "It's not easy to go to Spain, come back and play like that". Instead they showed the qualities that no English side has been able to find a way of overcoming and turned the game on its head.

Even if you don't support them, you have to sit back and appreciate Aguero and Gundogan's contributions.

Dyche said after the game that "teams like this nearly smell that moment and they did". Fatally, the Burnley keeper hestitated, allowing Sane to waltz past him and set up Bernardo Silva for a simple finish.

If the unlikely quadruple is going to happen, Guardiola will need every single player in his squad to be playing at their absolute best.

Of the first goal Gundogan declared: "It was a free-kick and the referee didn't tell me to wait, so I had some eye contact with Sergio because I know he likes to use these kind of situations to play quick". But after, of course, to give real value to what we have done so far, what we are going to do in the future, you have to lift the titles.
