It was a tale of two cities on Wednesday night, as Bristol City sensationally dumped Manchester United out of the Carabao Cup with a 2-1 triumph - then drew Pep Guardiola's Manchester City in next month's semi-final.

Jose Mourinho has claimed that Manchester United's shock defeat at Bristol City will not decide the future of some of his fringe players.

If anything, Manchester United should revel in the festive period because they have the resources and the players to be able to change up their squad and not be horrendously weak.

United highlighted their "fixture frenzy" by publishing research on their website showing that "United have a harder time of it than our rivals towards the top of the table".

Hayne is being sued for sexual battery, battery, gender violence, intentional infliction of emotional distress and negligence. Her last memories were falling face down on the bed, seeing a light from the hallway, and the continued sharp vaginal pain.

United manager Jose Mourinho felt Bristol City had been a "a bit lucky" to prevail in the game, but described their win as a "beautiful day for football".

The Championship promotion challengers set up a semi-final with Manchester City after toppling the holders with Smith's victor rocking a star-studded United side. From now until early January, teams will be competing in four Premier League games over the next two weeks and that may include one or two extra games for League Cup and FA Cup play.

"I don't know, you say, you are the ones, not me", he added. "There are other teams in the same situation as we are and Leicester is one of them". We are not the only ones.

"If we don't, it's finished but until last match of the season we have work to do".

Apple confirms it slows down older iPhones
Lithium-ion batteries are commonly used in mobile devices, and charging capacity naturally wanes with use and time. Apple design of handsets makes it borderline impossible for people to change batteries themselves.

The FA also said that Mourinho will face no sanctions following an investigation of comments he made before the derby. Their scoring record on home turf is eye-catching though - their defeat against Crystal Palace only the second time since February that the former champions have failed to net at the King Power Stadium.

Fulham have indicated it would take a bid in excess of £30 million (€34 million) to tempt them into selling their prized asset, with Slavisa Jokanovic admitting on Thursday he is unsure whether Sessegnon will remain at Craven Cottage. They have also been victorious in each of their last three Premier League games with the Foxes - winning 3-0 and 2-0 in their two meetings during the 2016-17 campaign.

Looking back on his time at Manchester United, David Beckham spoke in glowing terms of his relationship with Sir Alex Ferguson despite a "couple of wobbles".

Flu activity is 'widespread' statewide. Still time to get vaccine, officials say
The CDC reports that vaccinations reduce the risk of illness by 40 to 60 percent among the overall populations during flu season. Other tips include washing your hands frequently, staying home when you are sick and avoiding touching your hands to your face.

It will be ridiculous to conclude that United play the "most" long balls.
