Manchester United will not retain their League Cup crown after they suffered a shock exit to Bristol City in the quarter-finals of the Carabao Cup.

The Robins slayed the Red Devils 2-1 to book their place in the semi-finals against Manchester City and this wasn't a much-changed United side they beat, there was plenty of talent on the pitch.

Paul Pogba - all £89 million of him - featured in the midfield and he was joined by the likes of goalscorer Zlatan Ibrahimovic, £40m Victor Lindelof, Anthony Martial and Marcus Rashford.

That should have been more than enough to beat a Championship side, even if they are riding high in third-place.

It's not like Bristol camped in their half and hit United on the counter either. One could argue the Robins outplayed Jose Mourinho's troops and that's sure to leave a bitter taste in the Special One's mouth.

Of course, Mourinho branded Lee Johnson's men "lucky" after the final whistle.

As you can imagine, Man United fans were not in the best of moods on Twitter last night and they had plenty to vent about.

However, one unexpected player to feel the wrath of the fanbase was local lad Marcus Rashford. It seems as though the England international's selfishness in the final third has started to grate on the supporters.

Take a look at the tweets below:

Despite what the fans think, the 20-year-old has registered five assists this season to go along with 11 goals. Those five assists is actually the joint-fifth best in the whole Premier League.

While the United fans might be tiring of him, Liverpool legend Steven Gerrard is certainly a big fan.

Gerrard said on BT Sport: “I love how direct he is.

“When he smells blood he just goes right at defenders and with that pace he plays to his strengths.

“If you're a defender in that position he's one player you don't want to come up against, especially when he gets you in a wide area in a one-v-one, he can absolutely destroy you.”

It's worth remembering Rashford's age at this point. He's clearly still growing as a player and will surely be a big talent down the line.
