Once Manchester City finally got going against Burnley, there was no stopping them.
Pep Guardiola's men romped through to the fourth round of the FA Cup with a 4-1 victory at the Etihad.
The visitors took a surprise lead through Ashley Barnes, courtesy of some woeful defending from John Stones, but a Sergio Aguero brace and goals from Leroy Sane and Bernardo Silva put the hosts in control.
Whatever the competition, City just can't stop winning as they maintained their unbeaten record in domestic football this season.
As for Burnley, they can now focus on keeping up their impressive run in the Premier League, though Sean Dyche evidently felt a little aggrieved at the manner in which his side suffered defeat.
The Clarets boss was left furious with Ilkay Gundogan, who took his free-kick before Burnley were ready, leading to Aguero's equaliser.
It led to a heated war of words on the touchline before fourth official Andy Haines stepped in to calm the two managers.
As Nathan Redmond will testify, Dyche isn't the first to receive Guardiola's acid tongue this season and he almost certainly won't be the last - whatever Jose Mourinho says about his rivals' behaviour in the dugout.
The Catalan did explain after the game what he had said to his counterpart, quoted in the Manchester Evening News:
“I am sorry. I said please leave the referees.
“I am sorry, I apologise. I didn’t want to lose control. I said please leave the referees. It wasn’t for Sean Dyche.
Respect for Burnley
“I have a lot of respect for the way they play. Of course, the way they play is completely different than the way we want to play, but they do it perfectly. That’s why football is top.
“I think all the managers around the world, especially here, have to do their job.
“Of course, they have to keep control. If they were offended I am so sorry.”
While the Aguero goal was contentious, Dyche can't have had too many complaints about the final result after his side's capitulation.
So, unsurprisingly, he had little to say when he was asked about the row afterwards:
"You both fight, you both want to win. That's how it should be," he added.
At least there are no hard feelings.
