Manchester City qualified for the 2015-16 Champions League by virtue of superior goal difference, having scored 22 more times than their neighbours, who managed just 49.

This, naturally, has given rise to numerous rumours that Herrera is the subject of intense interest from Barcelona.

"I wanted to leave him on to give him 90 minutes and overall I think it was an ideal game for him to gain confidence and fitness", Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger said.

He recently reiterated these feelings after being questioned on his exclusion in favour of Nemanja Matic. and he put in a simply superb performance against Burton Albion in the League Cup yesterday; the kind of fighting display that Jose Mourinho prizes.

City's strong start to the season comes after the club spent over £200 million on new players during the close-season, with Benjamin Mendy, Bernardo Silva, Kyle Walker, Ederson and Danilo accounting for much of that expenditure.

Clough said the game at Old Trafford helped set the club up for their rise up the divisions.

The court's decision on the August 8 election was hailed as historic on a continent where judges frequently bow to political will. The official results were based on the electronic tally before the paper results were fully collated, the judges said.

Following the game, Mourinho told BBC Sport: "If the competition is an official competition then it is important for Manchester United and for me as a manager".

"When we arrive at half-time with the 3-0, from that moment it is just to let it go and finish as soon as possible". We've played here twice in 11 years and we've actually scored a goal now.

United's success last season was their fifth. On Wednesday my bother paid £10 each for his children to sit in excellent seats in the North Stand; our mother, who is from Old Trafford girl, paid £18.

United will now take on Swansea City in the fourth round of the League Cup, an event that's been around since 1960-1961.

Jose Mourinho had previously claimed that his Manchester United team have a swagger about them this season and there appears to be some truth to that claim with his players scoring 4 goals on 4 separate occasions already so far.

Burton Albion are at the third-round stage for just the third time in their history, losing to teams in the second and fourth tiers on those occasions.
