  • Raheem Sterling double put the visitors into complete control
  • Ferran Torres’ first City goal kills the game off as a contest
  • James Tarkowski and Ashley Barnes made their first appearances of the season

Referee Andrew Madley brings an end to proceedings and the Clarets are knocked out of the Carabao Cup.

Two minutes of added time.

Charlie Taylor does well out wide before swinging in a cross to Dwight McNeil whose header forces a save out of Steffen.

Burnley sub: Phil Bardsley replaces Matt Lowton who picked up a knock from the Sterling foul.  Last thing Sean Dyche needs is more injuries.

Lunging challenge from Sterling on Lowton results in a yellow card for the City man.

Palmer is through on goal, he looks to pick out Sterling in the middle, it’s blocked and behind for a corner.

Two corners are successfully dealt with by Burnley and the danger is cleared.

Manchester City sub: Nathan Ake replaces Rodrigo.

Sterling bears down on goal, Peacock-Farrell stays big and denies the England forward with his feet, man of the match performance from the Clarets stopper.

Burnley sub: Josh Benson replaces Ashley Barnes.

Manchester City sub: Taylor Harwood-Bellis replaces Kyle Walker.
