Rooney: Man Utd cup draw with Man City is...

Manchester United's Wayne Rooney is looking forward to another Manchester derby.

Jose Mourinho's Red Devils were drawn against local rivals Manchester City in the fourth round of the EFL Cup on Thursday night, with the fixture to take place at Old Trafford on October 26.

Regarding the match, which will come just six weeks after United's 2-1 home loss to Pep Guardiola's city, Rooney said: "For me, I think it's the perfect draw.

"With what happened in the league, it's a chance for us to get revenge for that result."

United will host reigning champions Leicester City in the Premier League on Saturday having broken a three-game losing streak against Northampton Town in the league cup on Wednesday.
