Incredible Man City vs Burton Albion winning betting slip revealed

The frankly-remarkable winning betting slip of one lucky (inspired?) fan following Manchester City’s drubbing of Burton Albion last night has been gaining widespread attention online today.

Man City 9-0 Burton

The Citizens welcomed their League One opponents to the Etihad, for the first-leg of the two clubs’ League Cup semi-final tie.

Hosts City headed into proceedings in scintillating form, having followed their crucial Premier League victory over Liverpool last week with a 7-0 hammering of Rotherham in the FA Cup on Sunday.

And to say that Pep Guardiola’s men continued to impress last night would be putting it lightly.

The Sky Blues ruthlessly picked Burton apart in Manchester, to eventually emerge with a staggering 9-0 victory.

Gabriel Jesus was the star of the show, netting 4 goals, with Kevin De Bruyne, Oleksandr Zinchenko, Phil Foden, Kyle Walker and Riyad Mahrez also on target.

City fan strikes gold

And City’s latest blitzing performance saw one punter secure himself a small fortune.

Incredibly, ahead of last night’s clash at the Etihad, Citizens’ fan Phil Hampson placed a bet worth £21.80 on the Premier League champions to emerge with a 9-0 victory, with Kevin De Bruyne as first-goalscorer.

And, with odds of 375/1 having been on offer, Hampson finished the night a cool £8,196 richer, as showcased below:
