One lucky punter won more than £8,000 thanks to Manchester City's 9-0 thrashing of Burton Albion in the Carabao Cup.

The City fan - @Hampson84Phil on Twitter - needed his team to score nine goals and Kevin De Bruyne to score.

Kevin De Bruyne opened the scoring for City last night

The Belgian playmaker opened the scoring before Gabriel Jesus' four goals and strikes from Oleksandr Zinchenko, Phil Foden, Kyle Walker and Riyad Mahrez completed the rout.

The hopeful punter placed a £21.80 bet with odds of 375/1 for De Bruyne to score and City to win 9-0.

And his winning bet wasn't confirmed until the 83rd minute when Mahrez netted the final goal.

The big winner tweeted: "@SkyBet @ManCity @DeBruyneKev @Mahrez22 thank you Kevin for the first goal and thank you Riyad for the last goal."
