Leicester boss Puel hails Man City as best in Europe

Arsenal

The Reds' defence of the trophy came to an end after conceding a stoppage-time to goal to lose 2-1 at Ashton Gate.

He said: "We play a fantastic team, for me the top team in Europe". We lacked the intensity that they had. And when I say intensity I mean not just physically but mentally.

Bristol City were not "lucky", as Mourinho claimed, arguing that United hit the woodwork twice. The most important thing is that a Championship team beat a club like Man Utd.

Mourinho, who led United to victory in the competition last term, also criticised his players for treating the game like "another day at the office", and even inferred that some of his squad played like they did not want to turn up. A lovely day for football.

Only one lower league team (Bristol is in the Championship) has ever knocked out four top-flight sides in one League Cup campaign prior to today.

"That's why they are one of if not the biggest club in the world". But they fought a lot to be lucky.




"So I have to say they were a bit lucky".

"It was a brilliant day for football - congratulations to them".

'THE PLAYERS WERE PROFESSIONAL" "The reality is that the ones [players] that were on the pitch were the ones that were not in the last match [against West Bromwich Albion] and are the ones that not going to be in the next match.

"I think it's a good opportunity, a strong challenge for us to try to beat them".

"I think with the support of our fans we can make a fortress of the King Power Stadium".
