EXPECTED WINNER:

Bristol City conceded an injury-time winner to Manchester City in the first leg of their League Cup semi-final tie but are still in the contest after stealing an away goal at the Etihad.

Pep Guardiola would have wanted to kill the tie at home in the first leg but City only managed a 2-1 win and still have a lot of work to do here. The Premier League leaders are winless in two away matches, their worst streak this season.

The Robins have already beaten Manchester United at Ashton Gate and will put everything into this match to do the same. Will that be enough, though?
