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.

The clash will take place at Old Trafford in the week commencing October 24th.
