Hull – Manchester United – On Thursday evening we will get the other participants the big final of the English League Cup, and after their semi-final second leg play Hull and famous Manchester United. Otherwise, the “red devils” are 15 days ago at Old Trafford celebrated with 2: 0 and so came just one step away from Wembley, while on the other hand before the players Hull probably the biggest challenge in their recent history. All the more so because they are in the last 10 visit with United, only one remained unbeaten, and two seasons ago when they were in the Premier League at home played 0:0.
Of course that all these above mentioned data act quite discouraging for footballers Hull before this second leg semi-final League Cup, especially as they have and the two goals behind to Old Trafford. However, they are in the last two home performances achieved victory, and first in the third round of the FA Cup with a 2: 0 over Swanseajem, after that and in the championship came to a very important three points in the match with Bournemouth, slavivši score of 3: 1. However, poroteklog weekend are expected defeated by 2: 0 over roaming with leading Chelsea, so you are still in the relegation zone, but with only two points behind 17th Swanseaja.
And in order to increase their chances of survival in the league, in the last 10 days have brought four new players, and to guard Elabdellaouia from Olympiacos, then midfielder Evandro from Porto and the attackers Markovic from Liverpool and Niassea from Everton, while the the other left midfielder Livermore. But now they are all their thoughts focused on this match with United, so Silva and coach probably will not too much to experiment with composition, especially because of the violations can not count on defenders ODUBAJO and Bruce, midfielders Mason and Henriksen and striker Keane, while midfielder Elmohamady and striker Mbokani on the African Cup of Nations.
Probable lineups Hull: Jakupovic – Maguire, Dawson, Davies – Elabdellaoui, Meyler, Huddlestone, Robertson – Evandro – Diomande, Hernandez
As for the guests from Manchester, they certainly much more peaceful welcome this return match League Cup semi-finals, given that two weeks ago the most of home advantage and reached the victory of 2: 0th But after that to the coach Mourinho typed and two draws from 1: 1 in the championship, and this against Liverpool at home and Stoke away, but that on both occasions, and lost to izjednačujućih hits came only in the finish.
Of course us and it just shows that the “red devils” again began to lose control of my game, so give them this clash with Hull certainly should serve as ideal for the return of confidence. All the more so because they themselves are aware that in the championship have little chance to catch up with the leading end of Chelsea, given that for them now lagging behind as many as 14 points, while in the League Cup already come close to the final at Wembley. This is why we believe that and Mourinho in this match to field a fairly strong line-up, and which would otherwise not apply just three defenders, and Rojo and Shaw because of injuries and Bailly, who is at the African Nations Cup.
Probable lineups Manchester United: De Gea – Valencia, Smalling, Jones, Darmian – Carrick, Pogba – Mkhitaryan, Rooney Lingard – Ibrahimovic
