AFP, MANCHESTER, EnglandHolders Manchester City can look forward to defending the EFL Cup in next month’s final at Wembley after Gabriel Jesus struck four goals in a 9-0 thrashing of Burton Albion in their semi-final first leg on Wednesday. Happy to be in the final again,” City boss Pep Guardiola said. Clough admitted before the game that it would take a “miracle” for Burton to blunt the Premier League champions’ might over two legs. City did not need any luck, but still got some when Zinchenko’s intended cross then looped over Collins to make it 4-0. Mahrez made it nine seven minutes from time and those City fans still in the Etihad cried for a historic 10th.
