Manchester United fans could have been forgiven if they’d opted against tuning into this evening’s Carabao Cup semi-final first leg between Manchester City and Bristol City.

Their team were knocked out in the previous round of the competition by the Championship outfit and Pep Guardiola’s side were expected to make no such mistakes at their home ground this evening.

However, much to the surprise of everyone, Man City didn’t have it all their own way at the Etihad Stadium.

It was the visitors who took a shock lead on the stroke of half-time thanks to a Bobby Reid penalty.

Guardiola had deployed a second-string line-up but still fielded some seriously top talent in the form of Kevin De Bruyne, Raheem Sterling, Leroy Sane and Bernardo Silva.

It was De Bruyne who levelled the scores 10 minutes after the break while Sergio Aguero popped up with a dramatic late winner.

However, the 7,000 Bristol City fans who made their way to the Etihad enjoyed their evening.
