Manchester United continue their defence of the Carabao Cup on Wednesday, when they travel down to Ashton Gate to take on Championship side Bristol City in the quarter-finals.

The Reds have had a straightforward route to this point, dispatching Championship side Burton Albion at Old Trafford and Premier League strugglers Swansea City away from home with relative ease.

Meanwhile, Lee Johnson’s men, who are flying high in the Championship this season, have been one of the teams to watch in this season’s competition, coming through Plymouth Argyle, Watford, Stoke City and Crystal Palace to earn themselves a marquee tie with United at home.

José Mourinho, who will certainly rotate his side ahead of a busy festive period, must expect his side to secure their progress to the semi-finals, but this is by no means an easy game, as the Robins will certainly be looking to make it a memorable night by causing a major cup upset.

Here’s our predicted eleven for United:
