Ahead of Wednesday's EFL Cup tie between Manchester City and Burton Albion, Sports Mole looks at how Pep Guardiola's side could line up at the Etihad Stadium.

Philippe Sandler finally made his Manchester City debut in their comfortable 7-0 FA Cup win over Rotherham United.

"Now he's back, he will be fresh in the mind and the legs, and is going to help give us extra creativity in the last third, in the fight", Guardiola said.

"I never did. If Liverpool want to play quick, we want to play quicker".

The Premier League champions could end up playing eight more domestic matches than Liverpool should they reach the Carabao Cup and FA Cup finals. "Sometimes I'm really unfair with many, many players and when I chose to play him against Southampton he did really well and that's why he played against Liverpool".

Guardiola added that he wasn't disappointed to lose Diaz or Jadon Sancho.

His comments came on the heels of losing Brahim Diaz to Real Madrid.

Sources told ESPN FC that Brahim was frustrated by a lack of first-team opportunities but Guardiola said young players must be patient at leading clubs.

Gillingham were left fuming at a disallowed goal against Southend, when Connor Ogilvie appeared to have scored, only for the officials to wave play on as they felt the ball hadn't crossed the line. We want to cut the field always.

Guardiola and Kompany both want to extend the captain's 11-year stay beyond the summer. "I never did [ask], if they want to play quick, we want to play quicker".

The 36-year-old admitted that he saw three incidents with Morelos, but chose not to punish the Colombian. McCrorie has made 19 appearances this term and has only recently made a consistent run of starts.

"I never speak with the many issues do I have in my head to think about the pitch?"

Rotherham's record defeat in this cup tournament was 6-0, but a new one was set by Sane who shoved off two defenders near the box before cutting onto his right foot to get a shot away, which deflected past a hapless Rodak. "We wish him all the best because he's a nice guy".

"When this happens, you do the best for opponents".

Guardiola, meanwhile has confirmed Benjamin Mendy has returned to training following a knee injury that has sidelined him since mid-November and he could be back in action within two weeks.
