Manchester City beat Burton Albion 9-0 in the first leg of their Carabao Cup semi-final tie at the Etihad on Wednesday night.

In front of their lowest home attendance of the season, Pep Guardiola’s side raced into a 4-0 lead by half-time and didn’t take their foot off the gas.

Gabriel Jesus scored four, with other goals coming from Kevin De Bruyne, Oleksandr Zinchenko, Phil Foden, Kyle Walker and Riyad Mahrez.

It comes just days after they beat Rotherham 7-0 in the the FA Cup, while their bid to retain their Premier League title was recently boosted by a win against Liverpool.

With the second leg at the Pirelli Stadium still to come, here are the best jokes from Man City 9-0 Burton:

Just got in and seen the Man City/Burton score. This is all set up now for a fascinating second leg. #CupMagic

If Burton can get six or seven early goals, it’ll be on a knife-edge

It'll be a different story in the second leg when Burton has Helena Bonham Carter back fit

The good news for Burton is that if they win 10-1 at home they don't need to worry about away goals

Man City murder Burton at the Emptyhad, lucky for Burton there were no witnesses

Huge fan of the Burton keeper time wasting to prevent City scoring a tenth. Magic of the Carabao.

Man City have just scored a goal and the crowd cheered like they’ve just been told their amazon order has been dispatched

If this was junior football, City would give Jesus a yellow bib and let Burton have him for the last 20

At least Rotherham could just go home and get on with life. Burton have gotta do this again in a fortnight

What is happening to Burton is exactly what should happen when any premiership side meets poverty. It should end in humiliation, little kids with faces painted crying on live tv and the romantic notion of the underdog being victorious in tatters.

I like to think that Burton score in the first two minutes of the second leg to go 1-0 up. Will commentators have the willpower not to shout: "That's what they wanted! The dream is on! City stunned. NOW we have a cup tie on our hands!" #MCIBUR
