Burnley boss Vincent Kompany hopes his side can use their 6-0 FA Cup defeat at Manchester City as “motivation to get better”.

Erling Haaland scored a hat trick, with World Cup winner Julian Alvarez bagging a brace and Cole Palmer also on target.

Nathan Tella and Ian Maatsen went closest for the Clarets but both were denied by City goalkeeper Stefan Ortega.

Kompany told the club’s website: “I’m disappointed because we lost but I’m always proud of our team, it doesn’t have to be anything with the result.

“These guys work hard, they keep their heads up all the time and yes we got seriously beat today, but I hope we will react to this - not just brush it aside but use it as motivation to get better.

“It doesn’t mean that these games are ever easy to win, but there’s got to be a way to get better, to come closer, to find a way.

“I want to play these games again and again until it works, until we succeed, but we’ve got to get better first.”

He added: “If I look back at the first half, I would have signed up for, not the result but the kind of flow of the game, there wasn’t any real momentum for the opposition team.

“Look, it wasn’t easy for us either but I think definitely, it was a good away performance in a very difficult venue.

“Then the second half, and this is what they do, they have a little bit of time to adapt and just the quality of the players, the quality of the coaches, so many things that made it difficult to stay in the game in the second half.”

Kompany’s men are back in action on Friday, March 31 when they welcome Sunderland to Turf Moor (8pm).
