Video: Manchester City 2 – 1 Bristol City [EFL Cup] Highlights 2017/18
Manchester City had to come from behind to beat Bristol City in the EFL Cup, Sergio Aguero heading in last-gasp decider.
Sergio Aguero scored a stoppage-time winner as Manchester City beat Bristol City 2-1 in the first leg of the EFL Cup semi-final on Tuesday.
Pre-match talk had focused on the quadruple chances of Pep Guardiola’s men, but they had to come from behind at the Etihad Stadium despite the Catalan naming a strong side, Aguero coming off the bench to settle it.
Bristol City – who dumped Manchester United out in the last round – refused to be cowed and Lee Johnson’s high-flying Championship team matched the runaway Premier League leaders in an enthralling first half, with the visitors going into the interval ahead courtesy of Bobby Reid’s penalty.
