Manchester City vs Bristol City: EFL Cup semi-final TV, live streaming

Korey Smith is determined to be part of another shock when Bristol City travel to Manchester City for their Carabao Cup semi-final first leg on Wednesday.

The Robins have beaten four Premier League sides to reach the semi-final of a major cup competition for the first time since the 1988-89 season.

Watford, Stoke and Crystal Palace were all eliminated before their dramatic quarter-final victory over Manchester United, in which Smith scored a 90th-minute winner.

And the striker has his sights set on bringing Manchester City's imperious 31-game domestic unbeaten run to an end in front of the Sky Sports cameras.

Bristol City's reward for knocking EFL Cup holders Manchester United out of the competition is a semi-final tie against Premier League leaders Manchester City.

Lee Johnson's Championship side had knocked out Watford, Stoke and Crystal Palace before Jose Mourinho's United became their fourth top-flight scalp - a record for the competition.

The Robins' last-gasp 2-1 win against the Red Devils has set them up for a two-legged semi-final against Pep Guardiola's City, who remain unbeaten in domestic competition.

Should Bristol City achieve the unthinkable, a Wembley final against either Chelsea or Arsenal awaits.
