In the upcoming fixture of the English Cup 2017-18, Bristol City is going to host Manchester City in their home ground Ashton Gate Stadium on Wednesday (IST). This match is expected to be a thrilling contest because English Premier League is a different competition than the Carabao Cup and anything can happen any time in this tournament.

Dream XI closing time: 12:15 AM
Where: Ashton Gate Stadium, England
(Head to head encounters)
Bravo (GK), Walker, Stones, Otamendi, Zinchenko, Bruyne, Fernandinho, Gundogan, Sterling, Aguero, Sane
Steele (GK), Magnusson, Diedhiou, Flint, Wright, Brownhill, Smith, Pack, Bryan, Paterson, Reid
*The aforementioned players are selected on the basis of their performances in their last game
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?
