Mourinho's verdict on Carabao Cup exit

Mark Lawrenson

Mourinho went on to criticise some of his players, accusing some of them of not turning up. Obviously there was the FA Cup final last season and they got one over us there.

Bristol face Premier League leaders Manchester City in semis. "City are a beast of an organisation".

But the taste of success will be far sweeter for the Championship club, who have now beaten four Premier League sides in the competition already so far this season.

The key will be managing to stay in the tie in a testing first leg at Man City's Etihad Stadium early in the New Year.

Lee Johnson has praised his Bristol City players for each doing "a man and a half's job" while knocking Man Utd out of the Carabao Cup.

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

The Championship high-fliers knocked out England's most successful club thanks to Korey Smith's last-gasp victor.

Mike Tomlin says catch rule 'needs to be revisited'
With Brown sidelined, Juju Smith-Schuster and Martavis Bryant should see an uptick in targets against the Texans. Brown, 29, finishes the regular season with 101 catches for 1,533 yards and nine touchdowns.

"So I have to say they were a bit lucky".

"The players have been phenomenal".

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

Jose Mourinho's much-changed United, even with big guns Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Paul Pogba back in their starting lineup, found it a trying night and had their work cut out after Joe Bryan had put City ahead with a superb 51st-minute strike.

The FA also said Thursday that United manager Jose Mourinho would not be punished for comments made to the media before the derby.

Yet he understood this was City's night, "a handsome night for football", even if he did not have time to hang around and share the special £450 bottle of fine Portuguese wine that Johnson had bought to entertain him.

However, before the game, he was good enough to spend more than 15 minutes giving managerial advice to 36-year-old Robins head coach Johnson in private, who clearly hugely appreciated that gesture.
