Robins Plan Special Win Over Special One – Rock Sport

Bristol City manager Lee Johnson hopes one of his players will become a “hero” in Wednesday’s Carabao [ English League Cup ] Cup quarter-final with holders Manchester United.

In 1994, the Robins pulled off a shock 1-0 win over Liverpool in an FA Cup third-round replay at Anfield.

Johnson said: “I think we have a group that’s very hungry to prove how good they are.”

United manager Jose Mourinho is to recall midfielder Henrikh Mkhitaryan to the side.

The Armenian, 28, has not even made the bench for eight of United’s past nine games.

Fellow midfielder Paul Pogba is available again after serving a three-game suspension for a red card against Arsenal earlier this month.

Mourinho said: “We need to take the game really seriously but I’m going to make a few changes and it’s possible Miki is involved.”

Should United progress there is the chance of an all Manchester semi final after City qualified for the last four at the expense of Leicester City.
