Manchester City smashed League One Burton Albion for nine in the Carabao Cup semi-final first leg on Wednesday night.
Football fans all around the country were squirming and the English champions continued to pile the goals on poor Burton, who pulled off a miracle to reach this stage of the competition.
The whole county could only find pity for Burton who were completely outclassed on an evening to forget at the Etihad when their dreams of winning the cup were not only dashed as expected but crushed in spectacular fashion.
And so much so that some fans are now feeling as though Manchester City were disrespectful to Burton Albion by putting nine on them in the first leg.
Do those fans have a point? Was it cruel of Guardiola’s stars? Or are they just doing their job?
