Manchester City swept to its biggest win under Pep Guardiola with a 7-0 thrashing of second-tier Rotherham in the third round of the FA Cup on Sunday.

The Belgium playmaker has suffered two lengthy lay-offs with knee injuries this season while he missed club's previous two games with a muscular problem.

The 21-year-old moved to the Premier League giants in the summer from PEC Zwolle but has been held back by injuries so far. Without him, last season would maybe not have been possible. Fifty points is incredible, it is huge.

"We are not here to be nice people to bring him on the pitch because he's a Manchester City fan or is a nice guy".

Hopefully, in the last part of the season he is able to help us because we need him.

Raheem Sterling, Phil Foden and a Semi Ajayi own goal put a strong City side into a comfortable half-time lead.

'We took (it) seriously, ' said Guardiola.

'The great clubs don't choose competitions, don't choose games. "It won't be an easy game by any means but we're more than capable of winning, so let's get the job done".

The driver of the pickup truck, a 41-year-old Joey Bailey of Georgetown, Kentucky, was also killed in the crash. He added that Issam Abbas was a lawyer and that Rima Abbas was a doctor and devoted mother to their children.

"He's scored more goals now than in our first season". "Today he (Foden) was there and his movement was incredible", Pep added.

'He still has to improve but that is normal. "He will learn in future and play better".

Asked if Foden could leave Etihad on loan this January, Goal quoted Guardiola as saying: "No way".

A ROTHERHAM United transfer target has told manager Paul Warne that he wants to join the Millers.

Warne's side went down to their heaviest defeat since 1995, but there was no shame in losing to a side that cost £390million to assemble.

"It went really well, I think the lad wants to come but then all the boring stuff isn't anything to do with me".

"If he plays its because we believe he can play, not because he's a city fan or a nice guy - we believe he can play!"

"The gulf in class is there for everyone to see".
