Mourinho, Guardiola cannot afford a loss in Man United vs. Man City Part II

The ESPN FC crew break down how important the EFL Round of 16 match is for both Manchester United and Manchester City.

Barcelona's 1-1 draw in the Copa Del Rey semifinal with Real Mallorca on March. 4 2009 marked a five-match winless streak as Pep Guardiola hit his worst run of form in his first year of management.

Manchester City's 1-1 draw with Southampton last Sunday was their fifth match in a row without a victory and it's only the second time in his eight-year managerial career that Guardiola has gone that many matches without picking up three points.

He's never gone winless in six and with a Manchester derby...

The EFL Cup gives some Manchester City players the chance to impress Pep Guardiola against rivals Manchester United.

Here's five who could do with catching his eye:

Kelechi Iheanacho

Guardiola has played Iheanacho and Sergio Aguero together for just 80 minutes this season with the City boss opting for just one striker or none at all, as was the case in the 4-0 Champions League embarrassment against Barcelona.

A first half John Stones error helps Southampton share the points.

Manchester City, top of the Premier League table after nine games and second in their Champions League group, apparently lurch deeper into crisis. After the fabled 10 wins in a row in all competitions, Pep Guardiola's men have now amassed no wins in five.

The current run, three draws and two defeats, equals the worst-ever that Guardiola has produced as a coach -- that was in 2009 with Barcelona. Nothing sells quite like bad news, so this week's Manchester derby in the EFL Cup fourth round at Old...
