Wycombe Wanderers boss Gareth Ainsworth has shared his views on his side’s Carabao Cup 6-1 loss against Manchester City.

Despite taking the lead through Brandon Hanlan’s 20th minute tap-in, City stormed back as goals from Riyad Mahrez (2), Phil Foden, Ferran Torres, Kevin de Bruyne and Cole Palmer put the homeside into the next round.

Ainsworth said: “We held our own for about half-an-hour and the 60 minutes away from that belonged to Manchester City.

“You give the ball away and sometimes you just don’t see it again for three to four minutes, and usually it is a shot on your own goal when you next see it.

“It is a tough place to come, but, Brandon Hanlan scores his first goal which was just unbelievable.

“We signed him from Bristol Rovers and we paid money for him and I can’t thank the Couhigs enough for that, as they have given me backing to bring players in like Brandan, and hopefully, we will repay them with performances like we did against Charlton.

On Manchester City, he added: “This is a tough place to come.

“I spoke to Sam Vokes and he said he has come here with Burnley many times and said it happens to Premier League sides too.

“Man City just ran the show.

“It was a brilliant performance by them.

“I try and do things the right way at Wycombe Wanderers, and if a manager of Pep Guardiola's stature compliments me and my team, then it makes this all worthwhile.

“I have got so much respect for Pep.

“I think he is a fantastic person, football aside, and I cannot wait to have a glass of wine with him.”

It was the first meeting between the two teams since April 1999.

Up next for Wycombe is an away trip to MK Dons on Saturday.
