"I am sorry, I apologise".

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

Guardiola later claimed his gestures were simply a request for Burnley to leave the officials alone, but it was certainly an ugly scene and one that ended with fourth official Andy Haines ordering the Spaniard to return to his technical area.

City's effort to get on terms were quite laboured until some quick thinking got them out of trouble ten minutes after the break. Guardiola has already used a lot of his second string in the competition already and given the tie is over two legs will be hoping he can get a positive result in the home game so that he may do the same away from home. "They do it perfectly". "If they were offended, I am sorry".

City looked in danger of falling at the first hurdle when a thumping finish from Ashley Barnes gave Burnley a half-time lead.

Leroy Sane made it three as he combined with David Silva before beating Nick Pope, and Bernardo Silva added the fourth in the last ten minutes after Pope was caught off the line.

"First of all I have to say its an honour for me to have Sergio Aguero under my command", he said. I want him to be happy.

"The quality he has is wonderful".

"He is the kind of player who doesn't intervene much in the first half then in a matter of seconds he can score two goals for us that change the game".

Dyche shrugged off the incident, saying: "You both fight, you both want your teams to win".

Despite the early setback, there was no reason to be alarmed for Guardiola and Co.

"When I don't play I'm not the most happiest person on earth, but the next day I'm convinced my chance will come again and I'm going to play again".

It is likely that there will be a few more fringe players involved against Bristol City. We looked a bit punch drunk, we didn't clear our lines on two occasions, our shape went a little bit, and teams like this have the power to nearly smell that moment, and then pick up their tempo.

Dyche laughed off suggestions that there was any ill-feeling with Guardiola over the equaliser but was angered by the officiating that led to the City goal. Real Madrid's clash with PSG in the first knockout round has seen City cut to 11/4 (3.75) to emerge triumphant in Europe's premier club competition. "That's how it should be. Everyone is allowed to be passionate I believe".

"But I just think it was a great moment for the city as a whole, it brought people together and we'll always remember that moment in the future".
