One expects this will be another tough day in the office for Burton after their 9-0 thrashing in the first leg. With City still in the hunt for four trophies, Guardiola will have a chance of resting most of the top players ahead of another FA Cup weekend.

Man City Chasing Four trophies

Manchester City are still competing on all four fronts and though the Carabao Cup would be the least of their priorities overall, they’re already through to the final having won the first leg by an astonishing 9-0 scoreline.

That would normally ensure that Pep Guardiola fields his B team with a congested fixture list to contend with, though Burton are unlikely to be spared that fate on this occasion.

The EFL have refused multiple requests from the Citizens to alter the schedule as their Under 23 side face Sunderland in the Checkatrade Trophy just 24 hours before this clash, meaning various first team players will have no choice but to play.

Such are the embarrassment of riches at Pep’s disposal that the likes of Gabriel Jesus – who netted four times during the first leg – should still feature from the off at the Pirelli Stadium.

City Will Be Competitive

Although there must be the temptation for City to treat this encounter as a training exercise, recent displays – including a 7-0 thrashing of Rotherham in the FA Cup – suggest that there is plenty of motivation within the City ranks owing to the high competition for places.

Guardiola’s outfit host both Arsenal and Chelsea at the start of February, and with Raheem Sterling seemingly billed as the top winger in City’s squad, the likes of Riyad Mahrez and Leroy Sane should once again torment Burton’s rearguard as they compete for a starting berth in the big games.

Burton came into the first leg unbeaten in four matches, but they’ve picked up just one point from two league outings since their humiliation at the Etihad, conceding three times at home to a Gillingham team battling relegation in League One.

Burton Recent Form Poor

That leaves Nigel Clough’s men with just a solitary victory in six games now across all competitions, while on home turf they’ve only kept one clean sheet in nine outings.

That doesn’t inspire confidence that they’re ready to tussle with a City side with the bit between their teeth, with Guardiola’s side winning by at least three clear goals in each of their last four matches.
