  • Bristol's boss a big Mourinho fan

On one of the great nights in the Championship club's 123-year history, City despatched the Premier League giants amid ecstatic scenes with a victor three minutes into stoppage time from Korey Smith.

BIG DAY FOR BRISTOL CITY "For them, it was a big day and big teams against teams of lower divisions, this is always a risk and you advise, advise, advise but in the end, the players are in a different level of intensity and motivation than the opponent and sometimes this can happen".

Jose Mourinho's side were holders after winning the League Cup last season.

"They played brilliantly, fought like it was the game of their lives which it probably was", he said on Sky Sports.

United had earlier fought back, with Zlatan Ibrahimovic cancelling out Joe Bryan's opener for City, who are third in the Championship.

City's victory, secured with a second-half goal from Nicolas Otamendi, was seen as crucial in the title race, giving them a huge 11-point lead over United.

Sources in Miami told TMZ that Anna gave birth to twins (a boy named Nicholas and a girl named Lucy ) on December 16, 2017. The often private couple did not publicly disclose the birth of their babies, but Us Weekly managed to catch wind of it.

Unidentified ball boy ran straight to the Bristol City boss Lee Johnson who picked him up above the ground and swing him round in the air as celebration went wild.

United now will now have to pick themselves up when they visit Leicester in the Premier League on Saturday (7.45pm).

"They are the ones that are not going to be in the next match". Of course we don't want extra-time, of course we try to win the game in the 90 minutes - which is why I say they were lucky.

Chelsea looked set to be comfortable winners over struggling Premier League opposition when Willian finished off a fine team move after just 13 minutes but Bournemouth rallied after the break.

"They've done very well against us lately, especially at Wembley but if I put myself in the Arsenal camp, I don't think it's ideal for them to play us over two legs".
