during the Caraboa Cup Fourth Round match between Bristol City and Crystal Palace at Ashton Gate on October 24, 2017 in Bristol, England.

Premier-League giants Manchester United have drawn second-tier club Bristol City in the quarter-final stage of the English League Cup.

Bristol City, the only side remaining in the Cup from outside the Premier League, will host reigning League Cup holders United at Ashton Gate.

Bristol has reached the final eight of the tournament for the first time since 1989, after defeating top flight clubs Watford, Stoke City and Crystal Palace during their cup run.

Bristol City coach Lee Johnson was “delighted” to get the opportunity to host United.

“The players deserve it for all their efforts getting to this stage of the competition and the supporters deserve it to,” Johnson told bcfc.co.uk.

“Manchester United are a massive club, steeped in history, with a world-class manager and they’ve got star players throughout their squad.

“It’s going to be a wonderful occasion when it comes around and I’m sure Ashton Gate will be packed and rocking once more.”

Manchester will go in as red-hot favourites to proceed to the semi-finals, sitting 2nd on the Premier League table whilst Bristol sit seventh in the English Championship.

In other quarter-final fixtures, Chelsea host Bournemouth, West Ham travel to Arsenal, whilst Leicester City will play host to a red-hot Manchester City side.
