United, City in a rut ahead of derby in English League Cup

MANCHESTER, England (AP) Jose Mourinho is reeling from his heaviest loss in English soccer. Pep Guardiola has matched the longest winless run of his coaching career.

Things are about to get worse for one of the managers when Manchester United and Manchester City meet Wednesday in the fourth round of the English League Cup. It's the second head-to-head already this season between two coaches who had an often-tempestuous rivalry in Spain.

Of the four competitions United and City are involved in this season, the League Cup is the lowest priority for both managers, but the importance of a victory at Old Trafford has intensified because of their teams' current form.
