Hull City 2-1 Manchester United EFL Cup Semi-Final-2nd Leg

Manchester United goes through the EFL Cup final against Southampton despite losing against Hull City, breaking their  17-match unbeaten run.

Jose Mourinho’s side led 2-0 from the first leg but, making five changes, they struggled to assert their dominance in the pitch.

Tom Huddlestone put the hosts ahead from the penalty spot after four players had tangled in the area after a set-piece, Marcos Rojo’s pull on Harry Maguire’s shirt the most visible offence. This gave Hull the momentum and confidence , but fell short of reaching their dreams of reaching a second domestic cup final  in their 113-year history when Paul Pogba  poked through the legs of Maguire and into the bottom corner from 10 yards.
