Jurgen Klopp's men put in a little effort to beat dangerous opponents down the line, and City were almost out of control from the start - Burnley had the first chance but Josh Brownhill's third-minute Ederson overtook Ederson but widened.
City took the lead more than two minutes after Raheem Sterling's cross was cleared by Raheem Sterling after De Bruyne traversed Nick Pope.
Two of the same players combined for City's second leg, with Stalin playing two on the right and eliminating Stalin in order to defeat Gundogan, and Kevin avoided the path slightly past the pope.
At the start of the second half, after a series of Pope's defenses, Burnley suffered an improved spell, but Ederson failed miserably, possibly three times after an unsuccessful effort by City substitute Jesus.
