"The way we played we didn't deserve more than three goals".
After the intermission, German midfielder Leroy Sane stole the limelight, assisting on City's second goal and then scoring to make it 3-0.
They got what they earned, says Guardiola.
Huddersfield take on Everton in 8 days time, whilst Man City will have the monumental task of holding off Burton in the League Cup semi-final 2nd leg, going in with a 9-0 aggregate lead.
With an own-goal and a glaring miss, Fernando Llorente failed his audition to be the short-term replacement for Kane.

The injury to Alli surely will mean Llorente is given more chances by Pochettino, however. Guardiola tweaked his line-up with Gabriel Jesus, who had scored seven goals in his past three games, dropped to the bench in favour of Aguero, who made his first start since the 2-1 win over Liverpool on 3 January.

Alli equalized in the 51st minute, heading in powerfully from Christian Eriksen's cross, but didn't finish the match.

Defeat left Fulham seven points behind 17th-placed Newcastle United and facing an increasingly hard task to avoid being relegated back to the Championship.
