The second Manchester Derby of the season will take place next month, and the English Football League have announced the details.

Manchester United and Manchester City will face off at Old Trafford on Wednesday, October 26 at 8pm BST (set your alarms now!), and Sky Sports will take care of the coverage as the official broadcaster of the EFL Cup. Sky will also show Tuesday's big game between Liverpool and Tottenham Hotspur at Anfield, the other high-profile fourth round match.

This will be the second Manchester Derby of the season, and just like the first one, it will take place at Old Trafford, and rivals Pep Guardiola and José Mourinho will face off again. The City manager earned early bragging rights after a 2-1 win at the Theater of Dreams a few weeks ago, and Mourinho will certainly look to get his revenge and reach the quarterfinals of the League Cup by beating his biggest nemesis.

A lot of things will happen in the month leading up to that match, but one thing we know for sure: this won't be a meaningless League Cup game.
