2016 EFL Cup Draw, Results: Manchester City to face Manchester United in fourth round

Another Manchester Derby!

Just minutes after the third round of the English Football League Cup came to an end, the EFL put the 16 remaining teams together for the fourth round draw, and Manchester City did not get an easy opponent.

That's right, the Citizens will repeat the local derby against Manchester United from two weeks ago, once again at Old Trafford, with the match taking place in the week of October 24. In the third round, the Sky Blues traveled to Wales and beat Swansea City, while United beat Northampton Town on the road.

This is the second time in this early season that the two Manchester giants will face off. Two weeks ago they clashed at Old Trafford in the Premier League, and the Citizens dominated and won 2-1 in a spectacular match, with Pep Guardiola earning early bragging rights over José Mourinho.

While the EFL Cup isn't as high profile as the Premier League, the fact that the Derby will happen brings plenty of attention to this competition, and the two managers will surely take the game very seriously.

The Manchester Derby isn't the only big game in the fourth round of the EFL Cup, as two of the most exciting teams in the Premier League, Tottenham Hostpur and Liverpool, face off at Anfield. This is the full result of the draw:

United again, huh? Bring it on!
