With an annual wage bill around 90 times smaller than City's, Burton was given an "extremely slim" chance of winning by its own manager, former City forward Nigel Clough.

His team conceded 29 goals in just 17 league games under Mourinho but the Red Devils have since conceded just three goals in four games under Solskjaer. He said: "I think this one [is more difficult] over two legs", Clough said.

"We could do better with one or two but the gulf [in class] of the two teams is far too much to comprehend. They won't be overawed, they'll go there to do a job and hope that we can get a reasonable result". Then, after four days, we have another final at home to Wolves.

It really is a complete mismatch when you look at any possible angle between these two teams. "It's the best way to respect the competition and respect the opponents".

Everton face a tricky test at Championship side Millwall, while Barnet, the only non-league team in the last 32, were drawn at home to second-tier Brentford.

ESPN's Mark Ogden was not too impressed with City continuing to bombard the Burton defence until the final whistle.

"What it does now is it means Pep can rest all his players in the second leg".

It is not clear what the pan of the club is at the moment but there are insulations that the Gunners' boss has these players in his plan for future poses and will want to work with them from now.

"We spoke about that at half-time - to play simple, let them run and try to score more goals", Guardiola told a news conference. "My experience from previous clubs, when you have chance to reach a final you take it".

"I take the cups seriously".

Mid-table Albion were thrashed 4-0 and 5-1 by free-scoring Liverpool last season but were unfortunate in a 1-0 defeat at Anfield back in August.

Kompany recently started back-to-back Premier League games for the first time since August, as City defeated league leaders Liverpool and Southampton.

"Yesterday I never watched one game, today I watched one and this afternoon I will see another with my analyst".

The recent stats are all against us - Liverpool have won the last six meetings - but that's why we're getting a massive price.
