Manchester City celebrated their victory against Bristol City last night, as they triumphantly secured the first-leg of the Carabao Cup semifinals.
It was evidently not an easy win for Pep Guardiola and his men, as they went trailing into the half-time break. The Championship side scored a penalty just before the clock hit 45′.
However, Kevin de Bruyne equalised for the Citizens 10 minutes after the break, while Sergio Aguero protruded with a dramatic late winner.
The 7,000 Bristol fans who were present at the Etihad last night seemed like they enjoyed the fixture. Moreover, the stadium was short of City supporters, as plenty of empty seats were noticeable.
It’s truly astonishing to see Bristol fans travelling a great distance to enjoy their team’s effort. However, the City fans could be regarded with contempt for being absent to support their team just because it’s the EFL Cup.
The substantial fixture proved the loyalty of Bristol supporters and their compassion towards their side. To the astonishment of Manchester United, they left behind something for the Red Devils to give themselves airs for the next few days.
The enthusiastic fans were in great voice throughout the match, and one of their chants peculiarly went down with the Old Trafford outfit supporters. The Bristol City fans were heard reciting: “Just like Bristol, your city is red!”

Even though City seized the victory and would most likely go on and win the cup too, this particular incident would sustain as a blow to them, and would undoubtedly sting a bit for a while, having heard such chants on their home ground.
The Bristol chants were loved by the United supporters, who naturally took it to Twitter, as the amused fans expressed how those lines recited were true.
