Welcome to Old Trafford!

For the second time in two months the Theater of Dreams is the stage for a local Derby as Manchester United and Manchester City clash looking for a place in the quarterfinals of the English Football League Cup. Yes, it's just the EFL Cup, but it's a Derby, so it's a big game and we should definitely be excited for it.

Jose Mourinho and Pep Guardiola face off against each other once again, and even though they haven't reignited their fierce rivalry yet, they still want to beat each other and while they might not field their strongest lineups, they'll still send out their soldiers to win the war.

This will be so fun.
