The quarter-final appeared to be heading for extra-time as the two teams remained locked at 1-1 entering the final moments, but Korey Smith came up with a stoppage-time victor for Lee Johnson's side as the defending champions were embarrassingly eliminated from the League Cup.

Mourinho, whose side are second in the league table 11 points behind leaders Manchester City, insisted that he had put the Bristol City shock behind him.

It then meant a 50-mile journey by road to Bristol, although they arrived at the ground on schedule.

It is also worth noting that Mourinho's side have won six of their last seven in the Premier League - including their last two. Defender Antonio Valencia has been ruled out however after sustaining a hamstring injury in the 2-1 win over West Bromwich Albion at the Hawthorns.

The King Power Stadium will be the venue.

Mourinho also escaped with just a warning after he accused City of making "tactical fouls" in his pre-match press conference. The FA said it has chose to take "no formal action" after reviewing evidence provided by United, understood to be relating to suggestions that City players make "tactical fouls" to break up opponents' attacks.

"Nothing more than that we can promise".

While Jamie Vardy will replace Kelechi Iheanacho in the attack, goalkeeper, Kasper Schmeichel will return to goal in place of Ben Hamer.

"There are other teams in the same situation as we are and Leicester is one of them in the same situation as we are".

There couldn't have been many people who would have predicted what was going to happen in the Carabao Cup on Wednesday night, despite fielding a side with Zlatan Ibrahimovic, Marcus Rashford, Anthony Martial and Paul Pogba United were outfought and outplayed by their Championship opponents.

Jesse Lingard has scored in each of his last three Premier League away matches, netting four goals in total.

The King Power Stadium is sure to be bouncing under the lights on Saturday evening. "I know I would never be in the top group but in the middle group we would like to be". Backing them to concede is available at (1.50) while it's (1.80) for both sides to find the back of the net.
