EFL Cup: Projected Manchester United Starting XI vs Hull City


Manchester United have not been beaten since early November, and in their last 17 overall across all competitions. It’s a feat unmatched since the Sir Alex Ferguson era. However, they’re still in sixth place in the league, a spot they have occupied since late October.

Why? Sir Alex believes they have been very unlucky.

Jose Mourinho believes the team must be more clinical.

Odds via Odds Checker:   Man United 8/15,   draw 7/2,    Hull City 31/5

The opportunity to finish off more chances should be their against a leaky defense when they take on Hull City tomorrow night in the EFL Cup.

The Tigers are in the Premier League relegation zone, and thus should be much more concerned with trying to stay up than the EFL Cup. On the flip side, United also are prioritizing the league, making the push for a top four slot, above the EFL Cup (or Europa League, FA Cup for that matter).

United bring a 2-0 advantage from the home leg into this road outing.
