​The semi-finals of the Carabao Cup will see ​Championship side Bristol City rewarded with a two-legged tie against runaway Premier League leaders Manchester City, while Champions League pair ​Chelsea and Arsenal will face off in a true battle of the giants. 


Chelsea needed a last minute winner from Alvaro Morata to squeeze past ​Bournemouth on Wednesday night after a late equaliser from Dan Gosling cancelled out Willian's first-half opener. 

But the real drama of the quarter-final stage came at Ashton Gate just 15 minutes later when Korey Smith fired the competition's last remaining Championship side past ​Manchester United in the 92nd minute, sliding the ball under Sergio Romero to spark wild celebrations among the home fans. 


In a round full of tight games, ​Manchester City needed penalty shootout from Claudio Bravo of all people to edge their way into the last four at the expense of Claude Puel's ​Leicester, while ​Arsenal kept the round's only clean sheet to finish with a 1-0 win over West Ham after 90 minutes of pure tedium at the Emirates. 


The first leg of the all-London semi will be played at Stamford Bridge, while ​Bristol City will travel to the Etihad before welcoming Pep Guardiola's men down to Ashton Gate as they look to do the double over the top tow clubs in the ​Premier League
