When: The match will be on Wednesday, December 20 at 9:00 PM BST.

Who will play?
Jose Mourinho should rest the key players tomorrow in order not to pick up an injury, and be fresh for the boxing days matches. We expect to see a mix of experienced and young players.
Goalkeeper: Sergio Romero
Defenders: Matheu Darmian, Victor Lindelof, Marcos Rojo, and Daley Blind.
Midfielders: McTominay, and Paul Pogba
Forward: Henrikh Mkhitaryan, Juan Mata, Anthony Martial, and Zlatan Ibrahimovic
Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Paul Pogba.
Paul Pogba and Zlatan Ibrahimovic is expected to play again for Manchester United after Pogba’s suspension is over, and Zlatan to start gaining some sharpness and playing time to be fit again, and such matches are perfect for him because they are easier than the Premier League and Champions League matches, but it’s against a tough opponent.
Manchester United should be able to win this match. However, Bristol City isn’t an easy opponent according to Jose Mourinho and they are in the qualification area in the Championship. We expect a 1-0 win for Manchester United.
It’s the first time these two clubs meet in this competition, and the first time to play against each other since over 37 years.
