Date: 20/12/17

Time: 20:00

Venue: Ashton Gate

Watch: Sky Sports

Lee Johnson’s Bristol City side have enjoyed a fine start to the season on all fronts. They lie 3rd in the Championship and impressively find themselves in the Quarter-Final of the Carabao Cup after disposing of Watford, Stoke and Crystal Palace, scoring nine goals across three matches. They’ve won five on the bounce coming into this game and are full of confidence. They’ve been scoring for fun and tend to get a lot of numbers in the box.

Much is made of Jose Mourinho’s affiliation with this competition, he’s won it four times, including last season. Expect United to make changes but they boast huge squad depth. They’ve won their last three away from home.

Team News

Bristol City are without Gary O’Neil, Eros Pisano, Jens Hegeler and Famara Diedhiou. Winger Callum O’Dowda is a doubt.

Expect Jose Mourinho to ring the changes ahead of a congested festive period
