United To Cruise To An EFL Cup Semi Final Win Over Hull

Manchester United are overwhelming favourites for the first leg of their EFL Cup semi-final with Hull on Tuesday night and it is difficult to look beyond a home win at Old Trafford as Jose Mourinho looks set to put out a strong line-up, while Hull are battling with something of an injury crisis in defence...

  • Hull have lost 11 of their past 12 meetings with United and have failed to score in 8 of those
  • Zlatan Ibrahimovic has scored 12 goals in his past 12 games in all competitions
  • Hull's 2-0 FA Cup win over Swansea was the first time they had kept a clean sheet in 23 matches

Home Bankers

United have beaten Northampton, Manchester City and West Ham to reach their fourteenth League Cup semi-final and it bodes well that the Red Devils have qualified from eight of their last ten appearances at this stage of the competition.

Mourinho always treats this tournament with respect and he has admitted that he is going to recall Zlatan Ibrahimovic, Paul Pogba and Ander Herrera after resting the influential trio for United's comfortable FA Cup win over Reading on Saturday.

The victory over Reading extended United's unbeaten run to fourteen matches in all competitions since the beginning of November (won eleven, drawn three) and it is no surprise to see that they are 2/11 to secure a ninth win on the bounce on Tuesday (Boylesports).
Match Odds:

A Comfortable Home Win

United come up against a Hull side that has bigger worries than a cup game as they are rock bottom of the Premier League and they are likely to be without first choice central defenders Harry Maguire and Curtis Davies for this trip to Old Trafford.

Hull did stop the rot to some extent by beating Swansea 2-0 in the FA Cup at the weekend as they tasted victory for the first time since November and they made it a winning start for new manager Marco Silva, albeit their dreadful away record ensures that Silva's joy is likely to be short-lived .

Hull have lost their past six away games on the bounce, failing to score in five in the process, and the United win to nil makes appeal at 4/5 (Paddy Power).

Indeed, the Tigers have lost eleven of the past twelve Manchester United v Hull meetings and they have failed to score in eight of those.

Beware The Zlatan

Hull haven't scored in the past 274 minutes of football against United and it is difficult to see the struggling outfit keeping Zlatan Ibrahimovic and co. at bay.

Ibrahimovic has scored twelve goals in his past twelve appearances in all competitions and he is 11/4 favourite to score first (Betfred) in what could turn out to be a bit of a romp for the hosts.
