Jose Mourinho: Bristol City were a bit lucky in defeating Manchester United

The FA said it has chose to take "no formal action" after reviewing evidence provided by Mourinho's club Manchester United, understood to be relating to suggestions that Manchester City players make "tactical fouls" to break up opponents' attacks.

It is understandable to take the view that the most probable way to get a result against better teams is to sit back and wait for set pieces or counterattacks to come your way while defending deep for large periods.

The Swedish global was heavily criticised in the first half and many Manchester United fans thought the player was finished.

"They were a bit lucky but they fought a lot to be lucky", he said.

Mourinho, while praising City for playing "the game of their lives", could not quite bring himself to offer unqualified admiration as he kept suggesting the home side were "lucky" to survive with Ibrahimovic and Marcus Rashford hitting the woodwork. I think a handsome day for football because a team from a lower division won and getting into a semi-final.

"A handsome day for football".

Only one lower league team (Bristol is in the Championship) has ever knocked out four top-flight sides in one League Cup campaign prior to today. Probably a day that some of them don't even want to come to the office and for the Bristol boys was a big, big day for them. They had the luck of the game but they fought to be lucky.

What made it so enjoyable and refreshing for everyone watching, apart from United supporters, was the positive, aggressive, high-intensity mentality that Lee Johnson has instilled in his players, and which they showed right from kick-off.

'THE PLAYERS WERE PROFESSIONAL" "The reality is that the ones [players] that were on the pitch were the ones that were not in the last match [against West Bromwich Albion] and are the ones that not going to be in the next match. We reacted well, the players had their pride.
