City Come Back From Behind To Hammer Burnley

FA Cup Report: Manchester City v Burnley 06 January 2018

By SL International - Jan 06, 2018 06:55 PM
English FA Cup
 
Result: Manchester City 4-1 Burnley
 
Venue: Etihad Stadium
 
Date: 6 January 2018
 
Manchester City came back from behind to progress to the fourth round of the FA Cup with a 4-1 win over Burnley at the Etihad Stadium.
 
The hosts started the game on the front foot, heaping pressure on the Burnley defence. However, Sean Dyche’s side held firm and slowly found a way into the game.
 
Burnley were presented with a fantastic opportunity to take the lead in the 18th minute, when Ben Mee’s header following a corner flashed across the face of goal. All it needed was a touch from Ashley Barnes to steer it into the net, but the 28-year-old failed to connect.
 
However, Barnes made amends in style seven minutes later. After a miskick from John Stones, the former Brighton man pounced on the ball, heading it down before firing a thunderbolt of a shot past Claudio Bravo at the near post for the opener.
 
Barnes could so easily have turned back from hero to villain in the 54th minute when the ball struck his arm in the penalty area as he attempted to turn it away from danger. However, referee Graham Scott declined to award a spot-kick.
 
Nevertheless, City equalised just two minutes later. İlkay Gündoğan passed to Sergio Agüero from a quickly-taken free-kick and the Argentine pounced on Burnley’s lapse in concentration, netting to level the scores.
 
It only took another two minutes before Pep Guardiola’s side took the lead. Agüero passed the ball to Gündoğan, who set the striker up again with a clever backheel. Agüero then rounded Nick Pope and slotted the ball into the net.
 
Leroy Sané doubled City’s advantage in the 71st minute following a lovely give-and-go with David Silva. After receiving the ball back from the Spaniard, the German sidefooted it into the back of the net.
 
Bernardo Silva sealed the game in the 82nd minute after a calamitous error from Pope. The keeper rushed out in an attempt to put Sané under pressure, but was easily rounded by the German. From there, Sané passed inside for Bernardo to slot home.
 
The scoreline was a cruel one for Burnley, who caused several problems for City early on. However, the Premier League leaders ultimately ripped them apart with the ruthlessness and determination of true champions.

I think City no longer qualifies to play in EPL now, they must go to laliga to get an ass whipping from R Madrid, A Madrid, Barca, Servilla, Valencia and Villarreal even Athletic Bilbao can trap them

Maybe other teams must field 12 players so that they can win, 11 is not working
