CONFIRMED: Mata, Herrera and Pogba all start against Hull

Manchester United face Marco Silva’s Hull City at Old Trafford in the EFL Cup semi-final first leg this evening. United are currently on a 14 match unbeaten run, of which they have won their last eight matches, six of those in the Premier League. United are a team on the road to recovery, especially in the league where they have clawed back an 11 point lead by Arsenal, cutting it to just two points. Tonight’s match will do little for United’s league place but will keep their momentum going for Sunday’s crucial Premier League clash with Liverpool at the Theatre of Dreams, which could see United cut Liverpool’s five-point lead, down to just two points. United are a resurgent side, making up for their disastrous three-match losing streak earlier in the season, and the unfortunate draws against Burnley, Stoke City, Everton, and Arsenal, among others which could have changed their current league position, putting them in a title race position with Chelsea. Still, this season has been a good one, much better than the previous three post-Sir Alex Ferguson, despite some still suggesting Jose Mourinho is not the right man for the job, which leaves questions as to whether they are the right supporters for this club!
