Burnley boss Dyche questions if anybody can stop Man City this season

Sean Dyche has questioned if anybody can stop Manchester City this season after their 5-0 FA Cup demolition of Burnley at the Etihad this afternoon.

Having hammered Rotherham in the last round, and Burton Albion in the Carabao Cup semi-final, Man City were at it once again against a disappointing Burnley side, with Gabriel Jesus, Bernardo Silva, Kevin de Bruyne and Sergio Aguero all getting on the scoresheet for the hosts.

Speaking after the game, Clarets boss Sean Dyche said that his side simply didn’t have a chance, but did add that the defeat offered a chance for Burnley to focus on maintaining their Premier League status.

“It was not about us, it was about them – they have elite players and they are so clinical,” Dyche told the BBC.

“We patched together a team today so I’m not too disgruntled. We are out of the cup, which I have a lot of respect for, but our bigger goal is the Premier League.

“It is very difficult when teams like this play the way they do. Who is going to stop them winning everything if they are in that mood? They are a top, top team and if you catch them on a day like today they punish every mistake you make.

“They punished every chance, but I’m not going to over-think this one, it gets parked quickly, as the bigger fight is the Premier League.”
