Red Devils to get the better of the Tigers

Red Devils to get the better of the Tigers

High-profile boss Jose Mourinho was brought to Manchester United to bring back the glory days and win silverware. The EFL Cup was probably not on the top of their priority list.

However, the men from Manchester are now in the last four of the competition and host Hull City on Tuesday night in the semi-final first leg of the much-maligned competition.

United’s form has been exemplary of late, as the Red Devils have gone 14 games unbeaten in all competitions and won their last eight consecutive games in all competitions. The Red Devils have also been highly prolific in front of goal finding the net at least twice in their last six outings.

Mourinho’s side recorded a 4-0 win over high-flying Championship outfit Reading in the FA Cup third round last time out. The Tigers new boss Marco Silva won his first game in charge, as the Premier League’s bottom team defeated fellow strugglers Swansea 2-0 at the KCOM Stadium.

Silva knows United boss Mourinho well, with the United boss previously talking about the pair having a friendship. Hull’s 39-year-old boss is highly rated and will be hoping his team can follow up that win against Swansea with an unlikely win at Old Trafford.

Prior to that win last time, the Tigers had gone seven games without a win in all competitions. Their poor results led to the exit of Silva’s predecessor Mike Phelan. The visitors may well have their work cut out scoring, never mind winning at Old Trafford.

The home side have kept clean sheets in five of their previous eight games and conceded just three goals in the process. The Red Devils defence now looks to have found their feet under Mourinho.

In previous seasons United may have rotated their team in the EFL Cup. However, now the Red Devils are in the semi-final Mourinho is likely to name a strong starting line-up and the home side have to be considered strong favourites to record a win in this clash.
