Sergio Aguero scored a quick fire double as Manchester City opened up the fourth leg of a potential quadruple with a hard-fought comeback victory at the Etihad Stadium.

Aguero, however, levelled from a quickly-taken free-kick and made it 2-1 from Ilkay Gundogan's back-heel.

Sub Bernardo Silva added a fourth after Sane had beaten Pope to a threaded pass from sub Kevin de Bruyne and squared the ball for an easy finish.

"Both of Sergio Aguero's goals were awesome, there were clever and quick and I am happy with both of his goals", Guardiola told reporters.

In contrast, Burnley looked a threat on the rare occasions they broke forward though they should give Stones the assist for taking the lead after 25 minutes.

"It's an honour for me to have Aguero under my command".

The City chief said: "I apologise, I didn't want to go out of control".

"The quality he has inside the box is fantastic and both of his goals were awesome".

"We play the first leg here at home, so, of course, we want to win that game". The Argentinian, Guardiola said later, was crucial to City's success and would stay at the club.
