Bristol stun United By

It seems fit, to pay no heed to managers, pundits and those who slander Mourinho for his tactics as, though United were shown the exit gate in the League Cup, they stand in second position in the Premier League and have reached the Round of 16 in the UEFA Champions League - the best United have performed since Ferguson's retirement.

Jose Mourinho didn't use a No.10 against Bristol City and Manchester United's attacking potency suffered as a result.

"We are not the only ones", he said. Captain Michael Carrick and fellow midfielder Marouane Fellaini have been notably absent in recent weeks. You want me to be punished, right?

"We did the simple objective study on that and there is a big gap, a really big gap between some clubs and other clubs".

When asked what expectations he has for his team, he replied: "The expectation is to go to every match and try to win, which is what we do and the matches we lost, we fought until the last second (in the shock Carabao Cup defeat to Championship club Bristol City on Wednesday)".

"We are in a race that only ends for us in May against Watford at Old Trafford, when we finish the game it is finished".

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. We have one more if so. "So we move on and we move on quickly because we have another match".

Mourinho said: "He is an option".

Antonio Valencia is doubtful with a hamstring injury but Paul Pogba is set to start in Premier League after returning from suspension against Bristol City.

The one issue in the short term is that numerous targets are cup-tied or not quite feasible in January.

City's Jamie Paterson collected the game's first yellow card just two minutes after the restart for a rash challenge on Pogba and United, attacking a packed away end, nearly broke the deadlock when Rashford's deflected free-kick tested Steele.

It will be ridiculous to conclude that United play the "most" long balls. "He played one hour (against Bristol), a bit more". Could be obviously ready to start the match.

Mourinho was less forthcoming when it came to Ryan Giggs' criticism of United's recruitment before his arrival, so too the FA deciding against sanctioning United or City for the post-derby fracas. Reports said City assistant coach Mikel Arteta was left with a cut below his eye after being hit by a plastic bottle.
