Championship side stun star-studded Man United

Bristol, Thursday @PeopleSports11

Korey Smith was buried beneath his team-mates in one corner of the pitch while Bristol City’s young manager Lee Johnson sprinted down the opposite touchline, fists clenched in celebration, before hurling himself into the arms of his coaching staff.

A relative sense of order was restored for the few moments that remained before referee Mike Dean started the pandemonium all over again. It took them another 20 minutes to clear the pitch of fans who could barely believe what they had just seen.

What a moment. What a night. It was 1980 when these two clubs last met and they will be talking about this win in the West Country for another 37 years.

The night they took on Paul Pogba, Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Romelu Lukaku and sent them packing. Manchester United’s stars disappeared down the tunnel and into the night leaving the wonderful chaos behind them.

The cup holders are out and deservedly so. You have to give credit to their conquerors from the Championship, a team that has now taken four Premier League scalps this season after knocking out Watford, Stoke and Crystal Palace in the earlier rounds. City have scored 11 goals in the process. This was no fluke, and that is what will trouble Jose Mourinho most on Thursday morning. –DAILYMAIL
