Betting tips and match preview | EFL Cup

Manchester United welcome Hull to the Theatre of Dreams in the semi-final of the EFL Cup, with both sides enjoying cup wins at the weekend.

They come into this match on the back of a 4-0 win at home against Reading, with the gulf in class in evidence.

Wayne Rooney opened the scoring in the 7th minute, with the Manchester United and England captain equalling Sir Bobby Charlton’s goalscoring record.

Anthony Martial (15) double United’s advantage just eight minutes later, despite speculation linking him away he will be key for United going forward.

Marcus Rashford initially had a frustrating time in front of goal, with a host of chances missed but he scored a double to boost his confidence (75, 79).

United Of Old

Recent results will have delighted both United and Mourinho, with United finally showing the cutting edge required to close out matches.

Manchester United come into this match on the back of eight successive wins, for the first time since 2009.

Rashford has looked in imperious form, with the impact performance against West Ham and his raw talent on evidence against the Royals.

Jose Mourinho’s side will be looking for another response, albeit in a competition where they are three matches away from silverware.

United Favourites

Manchester United come into this tie as heavy favourites, with their pedigree and form this season informing those odds.

They will be looking to capitalise on their dominance, they will also want to beat struggling Hull and get to the final.

Jose Mourinho’s side will be looking to continue their unbeaten record against the Tigers, with 8 wins and 1 draw in 9 meetings.

Manchester United

Silva’s Winning Start

The Tigers come into this match on the back of a 2-0 win against fellow strugglers Swansea, albeit in the third round of the FA Cup.

Goals from Abel Hernandez (78) and local lad Josh Tymon (90+3), ensured that Marco Silva’s reign began with a win.

Substitute Hernandez scored his first goal since returning from injury, with a hamstring problem keeping him out since November.

It was a great result for Hull, these cup games will not define their season though, with Premier League survival the key.

Hull Need A Run

The Tigers have found wins hard to come by,  but they have now ended a run of four defeats in their last six matches.

They are rock bottom of the Premier League, with just 13 points from 20 matches, with the January window open they will need players.

Both ends of the pitch have been a struggle for Hull, with 44 goals conceded but only 19 scored.

Tigers Underdogs

This dismal run of form means that Hull head into this fixture as the underdogs, with United in excellent form.

They will be looking to register a win for morale, this result will have little bearing on their main objective – Premier League survival.

Hull will be looking to improve on their overall record against United, they have yet to register a win against United in a competitive fixture.
