City became just the second team to knock out four top-flight sides in one League Cup campaign and have a two-legged semi-final to look forward to against Manchester City.

On the other hand, Chelsea defeated Bournemouth 2-1 at their stadium, Stamford Bridge, while Bristol City continued their fantastic run in the competition, defeating the reigning champions, Manchester United, 2-1 thanks to a late goal from Korey Smith.

"I think the things he said in the interviews after the game were more a reflection of him in his role as a manager, not as a person", he added.

"They played brilliantly and fought like it was the game of their lives". City is also pushing to gain promotion to the Premier League for the first time.

Who will be facing Manchester City or Bristol City in the final will be decided over two legs, the first of which will be held at Stamford Bridge. I have had good and bad times against them. "A big day for them and a big day for their supporters, so I congratulate them".

The home fans went wild as they cheered a regular win against a premier league top club.

In the first half we lacked intensity. And when I say intensity I mean not just physically but mentally.

Mourinho threw on even more attackers as he pushed for victory, with Romelu Lukaku replacing Daley Blind while Henrikh Mkhitaryan came on for Ibrahimivoc.

With the sides set to do battle three times in January thanks to their Premier League fixture early in 2018, Cahill believes any talk of the Gunners holding a mental advantage is wide of the mark. "Even the scenes at the end with the pitch invasion - you don't want to see it, but I'm sure everyone understands the passion that went with the result".

Mourinho accused City's players of going to ground too easily and said match officials needed to be aware of City's "tactical fouling".
