A Manchester supermarket has carved pumpkins boasting an impressive likeness to United gaffer Jose Mourinho and City boss Pep Guardiola ahead of Wednesday’s derby tilt.

The two teams meet in an EFL Cup last-16 tie at Old Trafford, and the Asda Eastlands store, situated over the road from City’s Etihad Stadium, decided to pay tribute to the rivals’ bout with some Halloween-inspired artistry.

With the match going into extra time and penalties if required, one Manchester manager will be squashed in the midweek clash.
