City will face Burton in the semi-finals of the Carabao Cup on Wednesday night, days after thrashing Rotherham 7-0 to advance to the fourth round of the FA Cup.

"I watched them play Liverpool and they were pretty frightening at times", he said.

"One-against-one absolutely we are better with Vincent".

The Burton boss was realistic of his side's chances ahead of the tie, stating: "Honestly, we are just looking forward to enjoying the experience". Oldham managed a staggering away win over Premier League strugglers Fulham whilst Cardiff were also booted out of the cup by League One side Gillingham. We're not a team who has a lot of titles in our museum so you have to take these chances to get to the final.

By the 37th minute, a City side that was nowhere near at full strength - half the team were back-up players - was 4-0 up and the home fans were singing about going to Wembley Stadium. It doesn't matter what happened last season, you have to take it.

Clubs in the European Economic Area can transfer players between the ages of 16 and 18 and this arrangement has allowed many high-profile players to join English clubs at a young age, including Cesc Fabregas, Paul Pogba, Hector Bellerin and Gylfi Sigurdsson. "In this incredible schedule, we have a little bit of a break in that week to prepare for the other competitions".

"I said to the players, respecting the opponent is to be who we are".

Sane was nearly through at the start of the second half only for his touch to let him down, but Burton showed they had not given up as Scott Fraser shot over following more good work from Akins.

Visiting midfielder Jamie Allen fired high over with Nigel Clough's side continuing a positive approach, but they nearly found themselves two down when Silva's low cross was scrambled away.

"We didn't expect anything less with the gulf between the two teams, we thought it could have been more", he said.

"Do I wish we hadn't played?" They have already made history - can they continue doing so?!
