Burton's heavy defeat in the Carabao Cup semi-final first leg at the Etihad Stadium ended their hopes of reaching the final, yet when asked what his opposite number told him at full time Clough remained light-hearted.

Pep Guardiola insists Manchester City have the strength and quality needed to keep pushing Liverpool in the Premier League even as they continue to fight on four fronts.

"We are going to enjoy the experience", he said. "If they want to play quick, we want to play quicker; always we try to put water (on) but it's not necessary here because of the weather".

"If you ease off you don't have respect". City made a number of changes from the team that beat Liverpool in the league last in their resounding win against Rotherham at the weekend, and we should expect to see a similar looking eleven for the visit of Burton.

'I am off for a glass of wine with Nigel Clough, I know how important his father was for English football, he was a genius.

City's 11th EFL Cup semi-final could not have started any better with Guardiola's side already planning for next month's showpiece, which would be their seventh appearance in the showpiece. It's an honour for me personally to play against a Clough. Nine of their 17 home games this season have contained four or more goals and I'm taking them to add to that on Wednesday. "When you get to the semifinals and you have beaten Premier League teams and mythic teams like Aston Villa or Middlesbrough, the reason why they are here they deserve incredible credit". 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.

Elneny and co will take on the Red Devils after their renaissance following the much called-for sacking of Jose Mourinho with club legend Ole Gunnar Solskjaer given the job on a temporary basis.
