Referee appointed for Burton Albion vs. Manchester City (Carabao Cup) (23/1/2019)

Manchester City have an unassailable 9-0 aggregate lead going into their Carabao Cup semi-final second leg against Burton Albion on Wednesday night.

Even so, whatever team Pep Guardiola fields will put on a professional performance and look for another win over Nigel Clough’s League One side.

City will have one eye on the other semi-final between Chelsea and Tottenham at Stamford Bridge, with Spurs holding a 1-0 aggregate lead going into the second leg.
