Raheem Sterling sent Manchester City back to form with two goals and an assist as the Blues attacked Burnley

Pep Guardiola picked an exceptionally strong team at Turf Moor and was rewarded with a dominant performance as they smoothly progressed to the Carabao Cup quarter-finals

Kevin De Bruyne destroyed the wobbly Clarets from midfield and Sterling – after missing early chances – scored his first goals of the season

With Ferran Torres settling into the squad more easily and scoring his first Blues goal in addition to providing an assist for Sterling, a single win was a positive exercise for a team that was shocked this weekend.

Guardiola has always played stronger-than-expected teams in cup competitions, but it came as a shock and indicates a shift in policy since last week

Steffen: His kicks were a bit irregular but always looked to redistribute the ball quickly and confident enough to come out of his box to eliminate the danger Never stopped talking to his defense 7

Walker: A solid night for one of Guardiola’s most reliable players Well combined with Torres then Mahrez on the flank and more importantly he made sure there were no repetitions on Sunday – although Burnley’s players did their best to win a spotkick 7

Fernandinho: had very little to do in a tidy performance, although he was let go when Barnes came in behind him in the second half and shot Moved to midfield after Rodri 7 left

Laporte: A vocal leader, comfortable at the back and also pushed Mendy and others to move the ball faster in attack How he misses City when he’s not playing 8

Mendy: Much improved Sunday’s shock as he seemed a lot more comfortable with Laporte next to him. His cross for the goal was smart, and not the first he delivered in the game. that City pursue a left-back 7

Three goals – from Raheem Sterling (2) and Ferran Torres – a clean sheet and a place in the last eight

Not much to report from that Torres goal, as City are just making sure Burnley has no way of getting back into the game and that they don’t exert unnecessary energy before the Leeds game

For the second time, Cole Palmer comes on goal and could press a shot to goal, but he lost interest in Raheem Sterling and Burnley cleared

He did well on the ball and also outside Another talented youngster who takes the step towards the first team

Kyle Walker, who has played a lot of football in recent weeks, is replaced by Taylor Harwood-Bellis

City’s first goal for Ferran Torres, who advances on a loose ball as Raheem Sterling can’t control and finishes well in the far corner

Cole Palmer catches a ball, rounds the goalie in a wide stance, and his center ball is cleared just after Ferran Torres gets an away shot

With a two-goal cushion, Pep Guardiola could turn to the bench to rest some of his more senior players ahead of the trip to Leeds

The city is in the mood now, and Burnley tries to convince the referee to stop the match due to a ‘head injury’ after De Bruyne’s hand grazed Burnley’s nose shows Burnley is very aware of the danger

Rodri was back on defense but Laporte is back on the pitch to try to continue

Very similar to his first, but this time it’s Kevin de Bruyne involved, feeding Ferran Torres, and Sterling converged six yards

Aymeric Laporte receives a blow as he takes a header and lands badly Nathan Ake appears to be receiving instructions

We’re back for the second half – Pep Guardiola will look for his side to start seizing some of the chances they were creating in this first half
