At the time, Conference side Burton held Sir Alex Ferguson's side to a goalless draw at home in the FA Cup, earning a lucrative return tie at Old Trafford. They also have strength in depth not just on the bench but below that. "We know we have more quality than Burton but when you don't work hard, you don't play very well, and it is difficult to win the game", Jesus said.
"We didn't do too much wrong", Clough said after the match. "They won't be overawed, they'll go there to do a job and hope that we can get a reasonable result".
"In this incredible schedule, we have a little bit of a break in that week to prepare for the other competitions".
"It is not easy to play this type of game against a lower team", added Guardiola, whose side are set to face either Tottenham or Chelsea in February's final.

The Brazilian was a nuisance for the Burton defence and got himself into great areas for a couple of close range tap ins.
"I prefer it, definitely", he said.
This match could be played another 99 times, and City would probably win it every single time. It doesn't matter what happened last season, you have to take it.
"I take the cups seriously". We kept going right to the end, they were shouting "we want 10" and we stopped them, that's a positive for us. The one we seen on Sunday who are on their game and irresistible, but they have also thrown in a couple of well below-par performances.
