  • City face Bristol City in Carabao Cup semi-final

After Smith's stoppage time goal, you can guess that the home fans were in raptures. "A big day for them", United boss Mourinho told Sky Sports.

"When big teams face teams from lower divisions this is always a risk".

Jose Mourinho has enjoyed success during his time in England in the League Cup, winning the competition three times at Chelsea and United last season.

"For them it was a big, big day".

Joe Bryan opened the scoring for the Robins in the 51st minute with a thunderous strike, but it only took five minutes for Zlatan Ibrahimovic to equalise with a well struck free-kick, before Korey Smith blasted in the victor ten seconds from time.

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

Lee Johnson masterminded one of the great nights in the history of Bristol City and in the history of the League Cup.

United are 11 points adrift in the Premier League title race, but still in contention, while an FA Cup campaign will kick off in 2018 and a Champions League quest continued at the last-16 stage.

"Do the recent results against them give us extra motivation? Yes".

"They are the ones that are not going to be in the next match".

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.

Alvaro Morata's victor against Bournemouth sent Chelsea into the last four. I think they lost a good opportunity also to play semi-finals and also to have two more matches to play.

Ties to be played over two legs in the weeks commencing January 8 and January 22.

Korey Smith's last-gasp victor sent Championship side Bristol City into the last four of the competition, prompting jubilant scenes at Ashton Gate.
