Sam Allardyce: “When City have got such quality as they’ve got we cannot near them, we tried to get near them, they laid the ball off with one touch.

Their quality and awareness, the availability of players – you think our players are not trying but they are, but the quality of opposition is that good.

“When you buy some of world’s most outstanding players it is as simple as that.

“Their squad is far better than ours, we have not got a full squad but even if we had we might have been beaten but I do not think would have lost 6-0.”
