Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola praised Cole Palmer after his debut against Burnley.

The Citizens claimed a 3-0 win in the EFL Cup fourth-round tie, with Guardiola handing a start to 18-year-old Palmer.

“He started a little bit shy, but that’s normal,” Guardiola told the club’s official website.

“He is an incredible young lad in the training sessions. Since two months ago he has showed us a lot of things. He has a good future in this club.

“He is a humble guy. He is a guy with incredible finishing, like Phil. He had his chance to score. His debut in this competition against a Premier League side, it will be good for his future.

“Again, thank you to the academy for these players. We get players from the academy’s work.”
