Jose Mourinho Gave One Bristol Mascot A Brilliant Momento Before Kick Off

Bristol City manager Lee Johnson is relishing the prospect of tackling all-conquering Manchester City in the League Cup semi-finals after his side dumped holders Manchester United out of the competition.

When asked what expectations he has for his team, he replied: "The expectation is to go to every match and try to win, which is what we do and the matches we lost, we fought until the last second (in the shock Carabao Cup defeat to Championship club Bristol City on Wednesday)".

Against United, they will see the return of Nigerian youngster Onyinye Ndidi who has served his one game ban following his birthday red card against Crystal Palace. And now they have pointed out that they face "a harder time of it than our rivals towards the top of the table" when it comes to the Christmas fixture schedule.

Romelu Lukaku has been involved in five goals in his last six Premier League games against Leicester City (four goals, one assist).

The Championship side will now face runaway Premier League leaders Manchester City over two legs, but having also seen his team eliminate Watford, Stoke and Crystal Palace, Johnson can not wait. Saturday's trip to Leicester City is the first of four games between December 23rd and January 1st, with Southampton and Burnley visiting Old Trafford on Tuesday and Saturday respectively before United travel to Everton on New Year's Day.

They made United the fourth Premier League victims of their fairytale Cup run when, latching on to a fine chipped pass from substitute Matty Taylor, Smith took the ball expertly on his chest and swiveled to fire home left-footed in the final seconds.

"I know I would never be in the top group but in the middle group, we would like to be".

Instead, Manchester United had a slight edge in possession (54/46) and had one fewer shot on target than Bristol City. I think we're full of confidence and belief in yourself.

"United have won their last three away from home in the league but have actually conceded in their last five and I think there will be goals in the King Power", Owen told BetVictor. If we do, we have one more game.

"If we don't, it's finished but until last match of the season we have work to do".

"Yes, he's an option", said Mourinho. Victory for the 20-time champions is quoted at (1.90).

Nonetheless, they have not kept a clean sheet away from Old Trafford since October so Leicester could profit from that.

Leicester shouldn't have many absentees ahead of this game.

Manchester United have been dubbed as a "boring" team in the post-Ferguson era. "He played one hour, a bit more".
