Kevin de Bruyne, Oleksandr Zinchenko, Phil Foden, Kyle Walker and Riyad Mahrez were also on target against Nigel Clough's League One side as City ensured their visit to the Pirelli Stadium on January 23 is a mere formality.

Zinchenko's strike was his first for City, though whether or not he actually meant it is a matter of debate - the 22-year-old Ukrainian flooping a lofty cross-cum-shot Burton 'keeper Bradley Collins from the edge of the area.

And though his side could face as many as 65 fixtures if they went all the way in the cups, Guardiola said he would rather be fighting on multiple fronts as he believes momentum can apply across all competitions.

Burton played well in spells throughout the first 45, but City proved to be too much in the final third for the League One side.

Burton's Clough believes stopping Guardiola's City, particularly when they travel to the Etihad on Wednesday, is a tough task.

Pep Guardiola demanded Manchester City not go easy on Burton Albion at half-time on Wednesday night before bludgeoning nine past them.

We've not gone into any detail with them (the players) because that will frighten the life out of them. "We are going to play the next game like a final".

Sen. Warren Announces 2020 Presidential Exploratory Committee
Political observers spent this week wondering why the MA senator rushed to become the first major Democrat to announce for 2020. The state hosts the first-in-the-nation presidential caucuses about a year from now. "It's important for everybody this year".

"We've not gone into any detail with them because that will frighten the life out of them", admitted Clough. "They don't just beat you, they annihilate you. You can not be 'oh, it's Burton" and we did not - that is why I'm pleased. "When they are on their own patch, as you saw against Liverpool (City won 2-1), they're as good and as confident as anything".

Manchester City came through their 7-0 FA Cup hammering against Rotherham United without any new injuries. 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.

"The great clubs don't choose competitions, don't choose games, you have to do your job".

Jesus, left, scores his side's fifth goal against Burton Albion.

"It's the first time I've played in a win like this", he told reporters.
