Betting Preview: Manchester City vs Bournemouth: Back Sergio Aguero to score anytime

Mourinho has tended to take this tournament very seriously, getting his hands on the trophy with United last term and former employers Chelsea in 2004/05, 2006/07 and 2014/15.

This week, Harry returns from his honeymoon and Sky Sports data journalist Adam Smith chips in with a couple of features to help analyse the upcoming games.

Manager Arsene Wenger fielded an entirely changed starting 11 from the side that beat Newcastle United at the weekend against David Moyes's Hammers, who have been on a good recent run.

Still City looked unperturbed, despite United's chances, and they looked destined to break the deadlock just before the interval.

The home fans thought their side had broken the deadlock when Aden Flint put the ball in the net after blocking Romero's attempted kick upfield, but referee Mike Dean had already blown for a foul on the United stopper.

'For them [Bristol] it was a big day, big teams against teams of lower division this is always a risk, and you advise, advise, advise, but in the end the players are in a different level of intensity of motivation than the opponent, and sometimes this can happen, ' Mourinho told MUTV.

Brownhill had another chance in the 37th minute with a thunderous strike from outside the box, but Romero was once again equal to it.

The Reds' defence of the trophy came to an end after conceding a stoppage-time to goal to lose 2-1 at Ashton Gate. It may yet even be Guardiola's best team too.

Guardiola admits he could never have imagined being in such a strong position at this stage of the season.

MF Scott McTominay, 6 - Guilty of two wild, off-target shots early on but put in a decent shift in the middle of the pitch.

El técnico se mostró además contento después de que los hinchas corearan el cántico "Turco, Turco" y manifestó: "Me emocionan con el canto y, de mi parte, me queda seguir comprometido con el club".

Alongside Thierry Henry, Patrick Vieira and Dennis Bergkamp, Pires was in the esteemed company of some of his generation's finest players.

Bristol continued to threaten and scored a last-gasp winner via Korey Smith to book their place against Manchester City in the semi-final.

Pep Guardiola's side face Bournemouth later today as we look to make it 17 consecutive Premier League wins - but the back pages are dominated by talk of new arrivals.

On the other side, Eddie Howe's charges will be heading into this tie on an inauspicious note following their loss to Chelsea in the League Cup on Wednesday night.

"However, we are a unique football club".

The Portuguese boss questioned his players attitude as well and was right in doing so after witnessing them play in a mediocre manner.

"He's injured, it's not good", said Guardiola at a press conference to preview the Premier League leaders' home clash with Bournemouth on Saturday. "It's not easy because Jamie Vardy and Riyad Mahrez were there".

Moreover, they have scored 12 goals just in their last four games - averaging three goals per match.

He will certainly not want that with his career finally taking off and no doubt he will be used sparingly when he returns.
