LONDON , England(AP):

Manchester United's Caraboa League Cup defence was ended by second-tier side Bristol City yesterday when the holders conceded in the third minute of stoppage time to go out in the quarterfinals.

The game was heading to extra time until Korey Smith stunned Jose Mourinho's side to grab a 2-1 win.

United had earlier fought back, with Zlatan Ibrahimovic cancelling out Joe Bryan's opener for Bristol City, who are third in the second-tier League Championship.

There was also a goal in stoppage time and another 2-1 win at Stamford Bridge, but Alvaro Morata struck for Chelsea to eliminate Bournemouth.

Willian tapped in the opener in the 13th minute, and extra time was looming after Dan Gosling curled in a 90th-minute leveller.

But Eden Hazard's back-heel set up Morata for the winner at Stamford Bridge. The striker was booked for excessively celebrating.

Chelsea will face Arsenal in one semi-final while Bristol City will oppose Manchester City. The semi-final ties will be played in mid-January.
