What Pep Guardiola told Manchester City players at half-time of Burton 9-0 trashing

League One side Bruton were humiliated by City in the first leg of the last four tie and suffered the largest ever defeat in a semi-finals of an English cup competition.

Left-back Oleksandr Zinchenko was among the first half goals, and he revealed what Guardiola’s instructions were at half-time before trashing the opponent 9-0.

“He said we have to keep going in the same way and same spirit,” Zinchenko said. “And if we can, we have to score more.

“I have never scored four before in my career, I am so happy for this,’ Jesus said. ‘We played very well and with respect, that’s important.

“Players like me want to play more, to help the team, and we went out there to win.’
