Bristol City vs Manchester United: Potential XI with Zlatan Ibrahimovic

Bristol City Head Coach, Lee Johnson, said at the press conference today Manchester United manager, Jose Mourinho, is someone he's studied and hopes to offer a "very expensive bottle of wine" that he's had to raid his "little girl's piggy bank" to afford.

Ashton Gate will host the quarter-final tie of the Carabao Cup, a competition Manchester United won last season.

Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho has announced his intention to make some changes for the club's trip to Bristol City, hinting that Armenian midfielder Henrikh Mkhitaryan may return to the squad.

Although they may have their sights on greater things this year, defending champions Manchester United will not want to be knocked out by lower-league opposition. "It is a chance for the players and the club to enhance its reputation. You don't go insane when you win", said the Portuguese, who famously celebrated Porto's qualification for the Champions League quarter-finals with a 1-1 draw at Old Trafford in 2004 by sliding across the turf on his knees.

Pardew, speaking to Sky Sports, admitted that he felt he picked the wrong team in hindsight, as his side were too exhausted and leggy after putting in such a committed performance against Liverpool.

Unfortunately, this difference in opinion led to a minor brawl, and City assistant manager, Mikel Arteta, ended up with a cut near his right eye due to a bottle thrown at him. Matty Taylor may start ahead of Jamie Paterson, but I would expect to see the latter preferred in a "number 10" role behind Bobby Reid.

What do you make of Mourinho's comments?

"There will be three or four Under-23s the bench tomorrow and I won't fear putting them on. But in the second half we were a lot better and had a lot more conviction to our play - that was the problem", he added.

But regardless of the personnel involved, Johnson is under no illusions over the challenge facing his side.

"If people ask that question to us and then you do it to the third team and the fourth and to the fifth and to the sixth, probably they will disappear". Players coming back to full fitness who haven't played, who haven't played for a while. City continue to be without Gary O'Neil, Famara Diedhiou, Jens Hegeler (all knee), Eros Pisano (hamstring) and Callum O'Dowda (ankle).
