Wild celebrations followed Bristol City’s winner, late into added time in their 2-1 Carabao Cup quarter-final defeat of Manchester United at Ashton Gate on Wednesday night.
A stunning result for the Championship side knocks the holders, who fielded a strong side including a forward line of Ibrahimović, Rashford and Martial, out of the competition.
And these were the best of the tweets and jokes after Bristol City’s 2-1 win over Manchester United:
Hahaha Margaret the 100 year old Bristol City fan on Sky Sports News..
“Do you think they can beat them?”
“I wouldn’t say so if it was Manchester City, but Manchester United I think it’s possible”
Go on girl.
