Gundogan warns Bristol of Citizens' League Cup desire

However, Rolando Bianchi's superb victor with ten minutes left to play was enough to send City through to the third round of the competition.

Bristol City had beaten four Premier League sides in a row in this competition before tonight's fixture, most notably the Sky Blues city rivals Manchester United in the last round, and they went all out at the Etihad.

Pep Guardiola warned his side to be careful before the game because "something special was happening at Bristol" and the Championship club nearly had another memorable moment on their glorious cup run at the Etihad Stadium.

Asked about City's chances of winning the quadruple, the Germany midfielder replied to reporters: "The what?"

"He made a lot of very good things but at 21, 22 years old - I met only one player in my life at that age who knew absolutely everything and he could do absolutely everything".

De Bruyne's dipping cross forced an early save from Frank Fielding and the Belgian sent a first-time pass into the path of Raheem Sterling that nearly breached the visitors' back line in a dominant opening from the Blues. "We can win everything, that's why we are here". If we don't, we will be disappointed, that's clear. It doesn't make us weaker in my opinion. All competitions are very hard, but we have chances [to win all four trophies]. We have to lift titles in the future - without them it's not enough. "So that is our target".

Gundogan is still easing back into action after a nine-month lay-off following knee surgery in December 2016.

"From my experience in Barcelona when we won the treble, in January you can not talk about it, it's unrealistic", he said. "I think the more games we have, the more opportunities to change players". "If we have less games, then a player or two or three players, will sit on the bench unsatisfied with their situation".

"But we have a lot of games and we just have to change because a player can not play every single game".

"They're human", Johnson said, before warning, "even if they have world-class players in every position and world-class players behind that".

"That was also my own situation over the last month". "We want to try to have the ideal result in the first one".

"When I don't play I'm not the most happiest person on Earth, but the next day I'm convinced my chance will come again and I'm going to play again".

But Guardiola refuses to countenance the possibility that City can win all four competitions, and he becomes more and more irritated when the idea is put to him.

Bristol City have beaten four Premier League clubs to reach semis of League Cup where they next face Manchester City.

The Robins, for whom goalkeeper Frank Fielding was outstanding, deserved to take something from the game and their away goal may give them some hope for the return at Ashton Gate.
