Of course Liverpool will take some catching in the Premier League, while the UEFA Champions League would be a first for the club, but can you really discount this City vintage from claiming the lot?

"It is very hard when teams like this play the way they do", said Burnley boss Sean Dyche.

Foden is expected to be involved, but the likes of Eric Garcia, Ian Carlo Poveda and Felix Nmecha - all of whom starred during the midweek win at Burton - look set to miss out.

City comfortably beat Burnley 5-0 at the Etihad Stadium and now have scored 29 goals without conceding at the other end - also collecting six successive clean sheets.

Guardiola understands the Dutchman's desire to join his former club but, in general, wants City to try and sign players earlier so that they are affordable.

Goals from Gabriel Jesus, Bernardo Silva, Kevin De Bruyne, a Kevin Long own goal and a Sergio Aguero strike - his 17th in 19 FA Cup games - means they have won all of their last eight games, scoring 33 goals, averaging 4.12 goals per match.

An own-goal from Kevin Long after trying to clear a forward-driven ball from De Bruyne enlarged City's tally to four in the 73rd minute.

"It's real mixed emotions".

Separately on Facebook , the Ascension Parish Sheriff's Office said two people were shot to death in the city of Gonzalez. Webre said a triple homicide that occurred Saturday in the neighboring parish is considered to be a related incident.

Clarets boss Sean Dyche said: "If he puts that in, I'm not saying we would win the game, but you don't get many golden chances and it just changes the feeling in the stadium and the energy in the sides".

"After the second and third goals it was easier".

"When they don't want to come it's because they want another place".

"Sometimes the games can be like this and require extra effort", said the Portuguese coach.

A potential giant killing, the home side managed to get themselves 2-0 up against their Premier League counterparts, with goals from Greg Docherty and Luke Waterfall putting the hosts in dreamland.

A late victor for Doncaster, a last-minute equaliser for Newport County, a match-clincher for Watford and a last-gasp draw secured by QPR meant the closing moments of the 3pm matches were extremely action-packed.

Frank Lampard's Derby County moved into the last 16 with a hard-fought 1-0 win at League One Accrington Stanley thanks to Martyn Waghorn's victor 12 minutes from time as both sides ended with 10 men. "I am satisfied to be in the next round and the draw on Monday".

Two other ties will need a replay to find a victor as Brighton and West Brom played out a 0-0 draw, while QPR's visit to Portsmouth ended in a 1-1 draw.
