Bristol City's Korey Smith sets sights on more Carabao Cup glory

Manchester City's manager Pep Guardiola

"What they have done in the Premier League so far is wonderful".

Yet talk of an unprecedented quadruple is rife in the dressing room. "I heard people had me on top of their Christmas tree!" I have a lot of respect for what he (Dyche) does and the way he plays is completely different to how we want to play.

Bristol City hero Korey Smith is determined to produce another Carabao Cup shock when they play Manchester City on Tuesday night. Each player will have their own reasons when that time comes, we'll have a club reason where some get an offer so big we just can't compete, Andre was a clear example of that. Everything else is in the future. I was quite sure we were going to have many games and always have the opportunity for me to play, to get minutes, to get a rhythm.

"All competitions are very hard, but we have chances".

"Nobody can take away what we have lifted so far - the pleasures from this team of the last three or four months, they belong to us". So that is our target.

Added to this is the somewhat weird decision for the Video Assistant Referee (VAR) to be used only the Chelsea v Arsenal game and not over the two legs between Manchester City and Bristol City.

Manchester City, as you would expect, are strong favourites to beat Bristol City over two legs.

Other investors also did not get to unload as many shares as they had hoped because of such widespread interest to sell. But once Softbank's deal with Uber is completed, management reforms will further attenuate his control .

Guardiola insists his complaints about the Christmas programme were not about the number of fixtures, but the close proximity of the games on December 31 and January 2.

But Gundogan reckons the hectic demands are a positive because it gives everyone the chance to play and stay focused.

Dyche shrugged off the incident, saying: "You both fight, you both want your teams to win. If the schedule next season says you have to play every two days, then every two days we are going to play".

It is likely that there will be a few more fringe players involved against Bristol City.

"We're under no illusions about the tie as they are probably one of the best clubs in Europe, if not the world at the moment", Smith said.

"My priority is the next one - tomorrow", Guardiola said before the game and he was true to his word with Nicolas Otamendi, Raheem Sterling, Leroy Sane, Sergio Aguero and Fernandinho all starting, while Claudio Bravo and Oleksandr Zinchenko were given rare starts too.

"In sport, the most important thing is what's next - visualize, focus on what's next".
