Media Watch - January 8th

Here's a round-up of the latest online and newspaper media coverage about City.

The Daily Mail feature a chat with midfielder Korey Smith as he targets an almighty cup semi-final upset against Manchester City at the Etihad.

Smith is also interviewed by the Bristol Post about all things Man City, including the possibility of facing Kevin De Bruyne.

From the home camp, Ilkay Gundogan predicts City will visit the Etihad Stadium to shut up shop, as reported by Sky Sports.

The Manchester Evening News predicts Citizens boss Pep Guardiola will name a strong starting XI for the first leg tie.

Lee Johnson has told the Bristol Post he “owes it to the supporters and the history of the club” to field a strong team in Manchester.

Meanwhile, away from the Carabao Cup, Football Insider website says Bristol City have pipped in the race to sign Jamie Murphy from Brighton & Hove Albion. According to the online news site, City were ready to stump up £1.8m, but instead Murphy has joined boyhood club Rangers on loan with a view to a permanent deal.

Finally, Leeds United striker Samuel Saiz is set to miss a return meeting with City in February after being handed a six-game ban for spitting. Saiz scored twice at Ashton Gate back in October as Leeds ran out 3-0 winners. The Bristol Post reports on the disciplinary news.

These stories have been reproduced from today's media. It does not necessarily represent the position of Bristol City FC.
