Jose Mourinho and Pep Guardiola are billed to clash again in the League cup, after both managers guided their side to qualify to the third round of the English Cup.
Manchester City defeated Swansea City 2-1 to continue their winning streak in all competitions, while Manchester United United traveled to Northampton and got a 3-1 victory over the home side, ending their three consecutive loss in all competitions.
Pep and Mourinho have met 17 times, with Pep winning 9 times, Mourinho winning 3 while the remaining 5 meetings ended in a draw.
Manchester City are currently the defending champions and Pep would surely want to prove his mettle by ensuring they win, even if they are to lose, the Spaniard would certainly not want it to be in the hands of his friend-foe.
Mourinho whose side is currently seated on the 7th position on the premier league table with 9 points may not want to be distracted, but would also be faced with the challenge of not wanting to be defeated a second time by Pep Guardiola.
