Bristol City vs Manchester United: Carabao Cup

Manchester United will be looking to avoid complacency when they face in-form Championship side Bristol City in the Carabao Cup quarter-final at Ashton Gate on Wednesday, live on Sky Sports Football.

Jose Mourinho used the Carabao Cup as a springboard for success during his debut season at Manchester United as his team beat Southampton 3-2 in the final before going on to win the Europa League.

While Mourinho is expected to make changes to his side for the trip to Ashton Gate, he will be expecting his players to remain professional against one of the Championship's surprise packages this season.
