CONFIRMED: Shaw, Mata, Carrick & Ibrahimovic start against Manchester City

Manchester United will be pitted against Manchester City for the second time at Old Trafford this season, this time in the EFL Cup. Just over a month ago, Pep Guardiola’s City side went away with a 2-1 victory over United in the Premier League and tonight, after United were defeated 4-0 by Chelsea on Sunday, Jose Mourinho’s side will be under pressure to beat their noisy neighbours and that Bald Fraud, who is apparently a footballing genius. City has not won in their last five matches, which has not given the apparent ‘best club in the world’ any criticism whatsoever. The media love City, as with all due respect, they are rewarded by the club for doing so, that is obvious. Their Academy is a massive joke, rather like a farmer’s field not producing any crops. Players are leaving the club for chances elsewhere, even at the age of 12. What a complete failure of a club. Money can buy you a gleaming new Academy, but it cannot buy you any history!
