Manchester United reached the EFL Cup final despite making a meal of a straightforward-looking clash against Hull and losing their 17-match unbeaten run in the process.

Southampton await at Wembley on February 26 but Jose Mourinho's men will need to produce a far better display in the capital after losing this semi-final second leg at relegation-threatened City.

Tom Huddlestone's penalty was cancelled out by Paul Pogba, only for full debutant Oumar Niasse to give much-changed Hull a shock 2-1 win at the sparsely-filled KCOM Stadium, albeit with United progressing 3-2 on aggregate.
