Manchester City reach Carabao Cup final: Match Highlights, Player Ratings, Records (VIDEO)

Manchester City reached the Carabao Cup final after completing a 10-0 aggregate win over League One Burton in their semi-final. Sergio Aguero scored the only goal of the night from Riyad Mahrez’s pass after good play from Kevin de Bruyne. EFL Cup holders City will face either Chelsea or Tottenham in the Wembley final on Sunday, 24 February. Aguero, who missed a simple chance to make it 2-0 in the second half, has scored in five of his past six League Cup semi-final appearances. Following the win Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola said: "It went well. The pitch was so dangerous and slippery, but we had a good game. We missed the last pass and the finishing a little bit, but it was good. "The game was completely different from the first leg because we started with a 9-0 lead, but I didn't see a lack of desire or playing like we believed we were something we are not. "We will try to win this competition, but the important thing is being there for a second year in succession. We take the Carabao Cup seriously and have done in all the games we played. We are in another final and now we're going to try to prepare well to try to win." City break their own record - match stats
