Man U out of League Cup

Manchester United were on Wednesday ousted from the League Cup by championship side, Bristol in a 2-1 victory.

United -- with midfield general Paul Pogba back in the side after the three-match suspension he picked up against Arsenal earlier this month -- rattled the woodwork twice in the first half but Bristol were undaunted.

Bristol, who already had three Premier League scalps in the League Cup this season, shocked United in the 51st minute when Joe Bryan sent a left-foot shot arrowing into the top corner past the despairing dive of Sergio Romero.

But they were ahead for only a few minutes before Ibrahimovic pulled United level after a softish-looking free-kick awarded for a foul on Pogba in a central position.

Mourinho threw on even more attackers as he pushed for victory, with Romelu Lukaku replacing Daley Blind while Henrikh Mkhitaryan came on for Ibrahimivoc.

But despite pressure from the away side, Bristol held their nerve, taking advantage of some sloppy defensive play from United to score deep into added time through Korey Smith.
