Bristol City Manchester United

Jose Mourinho admits he warned his Manchester United players about Bristol City's intensity before crashing out to the Championship club in the Carabao Cup quarter-final on Wednesday evening.

United pushed for a winner and Bryan had to make a last-ditch tackle after Luke Shaw had played Rashford in behind, before Lukaku forced Steele into two diving saves with a header and a low shot.

The Blues, meanwhile, have won eight and drawn one of their last 10 league games to remain in third.

That is summed up inside his office, with a quote from old American actress Judy Holliday plastered on one wall. Particularly impressive was City players' movement out of possession, with new angles constantly being opened up by those looking to receive a pass.

What we can say for certain is that no Premier League team has ever been this dominant this early on in the season and no Guardiola team, not even his best, has been so dominant at this stage of a campaign either.

Ilkay Gundogan sliced through Leicester's midfield in the 26th minute before putting in Portuguese international Silva, who toe-poked home confidently.

MANCHESTER City kept alive their hopes of a quadruple as they beat Leicester 4-3 on penalties to reach the semi-finals of the English League Cup.

"It is impossible to think that, but the football is quick, fast, and aggressive and the referees have to follow the rules".

Phil Foden starting for Manchester City at the age of 17.

After 18 games in England's top-flight this season, the answer to that question is an emphatic yes. Having assembled much of the side that Guardiola turned into world-beaters between 2008 and 2012, he's now doing the same for his countrymen in Manchester. "I said in the locker room to celebrate again.

I think they showed they had that after the 1-0 and they had that until they scored the second goal in the last few seconds and we had no chance to react".

A three-man advisory panel assessed footage of the incident in which Gray was tackled by Kyle Walker in the fifth minute of time added on at the end of the regulation 90 and could not come to the necessary unanimous verdict required for the player to face a charge of "successful deception of a match official". We know it's not the main competition but it's very important for the young players.

"He's injured, it's not good", said Guardiola at a press conference to preview the Premier League leaders' home clash with Bournemouth on Saturday.

Arsenal's Invincibles remain the benchmark against which City have both aspired and been measured against, and Robert Pires maintains Arsene Wenger's history-makers were superior. "We will enjoy it".

Others have also recently argued that they wore the hallmark of English Premier League champions far better.

Guardiola says he feels sorry for the likes of Manchester United and Chelsea because his league leaders are ripping up the record books.
