Gabriel Jesus insists Manchester City have no reason to apologise after they crushed minnows Burton 9-0 in the League Cup semi-finals.
Jesus scored four times as City refused to take their foot off the gas in a ruthless demolition job at the Etihad Stadium on Wednesday.
Pep Guardiola’s side were four up by halftime, but didn’t spare third tier Burton’s embarrassment after the interval as they piled on the goals.
The clinical display effectively booked City’s place in the League Cup final before they have even played the semi-final second leg at Burton later this month.
Some pundits suggested Guardiola should have shown mercy for tiny Burton, whose unheralded players were completely outclassed by the Premier League champions’ star-studded line-up.
