"It was a brilliant day for football - congratulations to them".

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".

'THEY FOUGHT TO BE LUCKY' "It was in our best period that we lost the game".

"That's why they are one of if not the biggest club in the world".

Yet City, who are third in the Championship and hunting promotion to the top-flight, kept believing.

The Blues have won just one of their last five competitive meetings with Arsene Wenger's men - a 2-1 FA Cup final defeat in May denying them the domestic double in Antonio Conte's first season in charge.

Lower Gas Prices For Holiday Travelers
Gas prices are at their lowest price in more than 100 days, but only less expensive in relative terms. So today, motorists can find gas for $2.50 or less at 71 percent of gas stations in the country".

The home fans went wild as they cheered a regular win against a premier league top club.

"It's an overwhelming feeling of pride, to beat Manchester United is incredible", said City's manager Lee Johnson, whose father Gary was once also a successful manager of the Robins. It has been a long time since we had a result like that at Ashton Gate.

Johnson had bought a special 450 pounds ($601) bottle of wine that he wanted to share with Mourinho after the match - but instead champagne was the order of the night.

Mourinho warned referee Michael Oliver to be aware of City's "tactical fouling" ahead of the derby on December 10 and also claimed that Pep Guardiola's side go to ground too easily, saying: "A little bit of wind and they fall". To get into a semi-final, a big day for them, their supporters.

The victor sent Ashton Gate into raptures and holders Manchester United crashing out of the Carabao.

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