Brace Yourselves - There's Going To Be Another Manchester Derby Sooner Than Expected
José v Pep Part 2
Well that was unexpected.
After United and City clinched victories in the EFL Cup last night, over Northampton and Swansea City respectively, the draw for the fourth round took place.
Of course, the two Manchester giants had to draw each other, meaning the next Manchester Derby will take place in October, instead of February, which is when their next Premier League meeting is scheduled.

New City signing Ilkay Gundogan was one of the many who were pretty excited:

Well we weren't expecting that. So soon after United and City's pulsating encounter earlier this month, the eyes of the world will be on Manchester once more.
The clash will take place at Old Trafford in the week commencing October 24th.
