The Robins have been redefined under Lee Johnson this season, as he looked to face his biggest managerial test so far against one of the best bosses in world football, and his rampant Manchester City side.
Indeed, Bristol City were looking to repeat a similar performance to the one that saw them overcome Manchester United at Ashton Gate in the last round.
However, Manchester City have been levels above anyone else this season, and this showed at times with Pep Guardiola’s side coming out as 2-1 winners.
Although, Lee Johnson will be over the moon with his player’s performances after giving the best side in English football a run for their money.
One particular player who’s had a great influence on proceedings in the Bristol City line-up since joining the club is Hordur Magnusson, after the Icelandic footballer signed from Serie A giants Juventus back in 2016.
The left-back was back at his best last night, as his darting runs and tracking back down the left-hand side saw Raheem Sterling face a nervous night at the Etihad.
Nevertheless, after the gutting defeat. Magnusson took to his personal Twitter account (@HordurM34) to show his pleasure with the team’s performance, while thanking fans for support.

Following the Icelandic’s message, supporters praised the defender for his dangerous throw-ins, as they looked to give the left-back confidence moving forward.
So without further ado, here’s a look at exactly what supporters made of the post…
Your Icelandic throws are so dangerous. Keep up the great work Mags ????⚪️
