Manchester United have made it into the semi-final of the newly-renamed EFL Cup, and the draw has been made. Jose Mourinho’s men will take on Hull City over two legs in January, with a potential place in the final against either Southampton or Liverpool at stake.
It’ll mean a return to Old Trafford for former assistant manager Mike Phelan, who’s Hull City side will do extremely well to remain in the Premier League come next May – purely down to a lack of spending from the board.
Over two legs, you’d surely think Manchester United have enough firepower to make it into the final, and it could well be a massive confidence booster for the lads if that is the case.
For now though, Jose Mourinho and the players will have about a month to solely concentrate on league football and work on getting us moving up the Premier League table.
The first leg will take place at Old Trafford, week commencing 9th January, with the return game at the KC Stadium, week commencing 23rd January.
