Burton Albion boss Clough: Man City don't just beat you, they annihilate you

Burton Albion boss Nigel Clough had no complaints after their Carabao Cup semifinal thrashing by Manchester City.

City won the first-leg of the tie 9-0.

"They're professional - they never ease off," Clough said. "They don't just beat you, they annihilate you.

"I don't think we could've done too much more with the quality that is out there. We could do better with one or two but the gulf of the two teams is far too much to comprehend.

"We're talking about United, Arsenal and Chelsea bridging the gap... we've got no chance. We'll celebrate, it's not about tonight: it's about Burton Albion getting to the semi-final.

"We'll probably never be here again and that is how big this achievement is. A lot of clubs have never reached one."
