Manchester United progressed to the quarter-final of the EFL Cup after defeating Manchester City 1-0 at Old Trafford on 26 October. A second half goal from Juan Mata was the difference as the Red Devils bounced against their local rivals on Wednesday evening.

This win comes after their 4-0 defeat at the hands of Chelsea in the Premier League clash at Stamford Bridge. Jose Mourinho apologised the home fans after the 20-time English champions' win over City in the derby.

Both United and City faced each other earlier in the season for the league fixture. It was Pep Guardiola's side who came on top, winning the match 2-1. However, the visitors failed to register a single shot on target, with Daley Blind and Marcos Rojo playing in the heart of the back four.

City's latest defeat leaves them without a win in six matches played in all competitions, which includes three defeats. The former Barcelona and Bayern Munich manager will be hoping his side can bounce back in the upcoming fixtures.

Meanwhile, Mourinho will be delighted after getting back to winning ways after a drubbing defeat against his former club. He will be hoping his side can continue this form in the league. The 20-time English champions will host West Ham United in the quarter-final of the EFL Cup.
