  1. A long way home for Man United

    Bristol City 2-1 Man United

    Simon Stone

    BBC Sport

    I was a bit premature there - I'll actually leave you with this - just in from our reporter Simon Stone....

    Manchester United's trip to Bristol this week turned into a journey to forget in more ways than one.

    United's intended flight to the south west on Tuesday was diverted to Cardiff due to fog.

    Jose Mourinho and his squad then returned to the Welsh capital after their surprise 2-1 Carabao Cup defeat by Championship side, only to discover that the fog was too bad for them to return by air.

    Instead, they had to make the journey on the team bus, returning to Manchester at 5am.

    Right I actually am going now - Craig.

  2. Post update

    Right that's your lot for now. Thanks for joining us and taking part this morning.

    Daniel Jones: As a Manchester Utd fan I’m angry that we lost to Bristol city we were so poor. time to change the Manger time to get Ryan giggs in. Swansea sacking Paul isn’t the right thing to do he is one of the best managers in the league.

    nigel barnes: Mourinho. "I don't want me saying they are lucky to be the main thing .." Then goes on to use 'lucky half a dozen times.

    Paul Skinback: Hopefully Jose Mourinho and Phil Taylor will receive a voucher for a course on 'How to be gracious in defeat', run by Roger Federer.

  7. Mourinho and the word 'lucky'

    Bristol City 2-1 Man United

    It appears there are two schools of thought on Jose Mourinho saying Bristol City were "lucky". Some of you say the media have made too much of it, while others believe he was a little ungracious. We're trying to balance those views as best we can this morning.

  9. Swansea sack Paul Clement

    On Monday night Paul Clement told BBC Wales he was focused on making it to January as the club's manager.

    But he hasn't made it that far after defeat at Everton made it nine defeats from their last 11 matches.

  10. Swansea reaction

    #bbcfootball or text 81111 (UK only)

    With all the excitement of Bristol City reaching the semi-finals of the EFL Cup it's easy to forget a sixth Premier League manager lost their job last night.

    Here's what some of you have been getting in touch to say:

    Thomas Ross: Swansea will always be a team that relies on short term appointments at xmas, same as West Ham will rely on January spending.

    Stuart Chateris: With every team below 9th having a reasonable chance of relegation, I suspect there could be more sackings to come

    Steve Hilton: Mark Hughes will be next

    Paul Clement

    He's been chatting to City's official website and this is a flavour of what he's had to say, starting with Korey Smith's winning goal

    "He (Smith) will dine off that for many years, We can now officially sack Brian Tinnion and Scotty Murray and Joe Bryan and Korey Smith can be the new icons.

    Real Madrid v Barcelona (12:00 GMT Saturday)

    Gareth Bale is hoping to use Saturday's El Clasico to cement his long-term future at Real Madrid, according to Spanish football writer Andy West.

    Bale has missed the majority of this season with a series of injuries and there is speculation the club are willing to sell him.

    Will Bale even play on Saturday? Should he? If Madrid sell, will clubs be forming a queue to sign him?

    Chelsea 2-1 Bournemouth

    Antonio Conte shuffled his pack for last night's game and he was delighted with how his players responded.

    "Last season, we were eliminated in the fourth round by West Ham. This season we must be happy with this achievement in reaching the semi-final of one of the two cups in England.

    "I had good responses from my players. In this cup, they showed they are very professional. I hope this game also improves the physical condition especially for the players who had injuries and who are not playing with regularity. It means we are working very well."
