Ibrahimovic, Lingard, Pogba and Rashford start against Hull

MacFinder

Manchester United face Hull City in the semi-final second leg of the EFL Cup at the KCOM Stadium this evening. Just over a fortnight ago, United earned a 2-0 victory over Marco Silva’s side at Old Trafford and stand in good stead to earn their first Wembley cup final this season, where they could face Southampton – the team that beat Jurgen Klopp’s Liverpool with a 2-0 aggregate victory at Anfield on Wednesday evening. Klopp’s side have won one match in 2017 against Plymouth Argyle – and that was after a replay! United are still unbeaten, despite drawing their last two Premier League matches against Liverpool and Stoke City. Tonight could see United get back on track this season.

Manchester United:

De Gea;

Darmian, Jones, Smalling, Rojo;

Carrick, Herrera;

Lingard, Pogba, Rashford;

Ibrahimovic

Substitutes:

Romero; Shaw, Fosu-Mensah; Mata, Mkhitaryan, Fellaini; Rooney

Hull City:

Marshall;

Meyler, Maguire, Dawson, Tymon;

Niasse, Huddlestone, Clucas, Maloney;

Bowen, Diomande

Substitutes:

Kuciak, Robertson, Hernandez, Elabdellaoui, Weir, Evandro, Markovic

Manchester United and Hull City have met 30 times in the history of both clubs with United winning 21 matches, drawing four and losing just five – the last on the 23rd November 1974, which would suggest it would be a tough night for Silva’s side against Mourinho’s men this evening. Jose Mourinho has won on trophy during his reign as United manager, the FA Community Shield at Wembley in August, but he will be looking to aim for a second, with a victory this evening, setting up a date against Southampton at Wembley on Sunday 26th February 2017 – hoping to add more success during his first season as Manchester United manager.
