Manchester United, who will be looking to bounce back from their derby day thrashing, meet Newcastle United in the round-of-16 stage of the EFL Cup.
Although the scoreline read 3-0 at the weekend, it was a lot more one-sided than that in the Manchester derby where City completely dominated proceedings and came away with a deserved victory.
As for United, as has so often been in the case in recent years after the Manchester derby, there will be a lot of soul-searching to do as the gap in class between themselves and their city rivals was brought into sharp focus once more.
Erik Ten Hag will likely shuffle the pack a little bit for this cup game with some fringe players hoping for an opportunity, but the Red Devils could really do with getting back to winning ways here.

After reaching the final of this tournament last season, missing out to Manchester United of course, Newcastle will be looking to go one better this term and enact some revenge on the Red Devils whilst they are at it.
In their last outing in the league, the Magpies were held by a plucky Wolves side with goals from Mario Lemina and Hwang Hee-chan cancelling out a brace from Newcastle’s Callum Wilson.
They were also dealt a further blow with the news that Swedish striker Alexander Isak, who already has seven goals to his name so far this season, will be sidelined for the foreseeable through injury.
