Guardiola fumed at Man City players after Man Utd Cup rout

Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola blew a fuse after their rout of Carabao Cup semifinal at Manchester United.

The Sun says Guardiola gave his City players a rollicking after their 3-1 Carabao Cup victory over fierce rivals United as he felt they should have won by at least six goals.

City were utterly dominant in the opening 45 minutes of the semi-final tie at Old Trafford and went into the interval with a three-goal lead, though it could have easily been more.

Guardiola felt his players let United off the hook and believes they could have easily won the match by six goals and killed off any chance of a turnaround.

He did however reserve some praise for individual performances, presumably Bernardo Silva and Riyad Mahrez, but overall was displeased with the team's ruthlessness in front of goal.
