Jose Mourinho: No Possibility to React

After their match against Bristol City on Tuesday night in the Carabao Cup, Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho claimed Bristol City scored at a time where it was impossible to react after they scored in stoppage time to beat the EFL Cup holders 2-1 and secure a semi-final spot against the flying Man City.

Mourinho's side never looked to be in complete control at Ashton Gate, even if they hit the frame of the goal through Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Marcus Rashford in the first half.
City broke the deadlock early in the second half through a stunning Joe Bryan goal, but Ibrahimovic levelled soon after from a beautiful free-kick.

"My thoughts are they were a bit lucky," he told Sky Sports. "But they fought a lot to be lucky.

"They won the game in a moment when we have no possibility to react. They won in our best moment of the match when everyone was waiting for our goal.
"I have to say they were lucky. We also hit the post twice.
"But they fought brilliantly and like it was the game of their lives, which it probably was.
"It was a beautiful day for football. I don't want me saying they're lucky to be the main thing
"The intensity they had [was their biggest asset], not just physically, but also mentally. For some of us it was one more day in the office, for some maybe a day at the office that they didn't want.
