Man Utd reach the EFL Cup final at Wembley after Paul Pogba scores in the second leg of the semi final to secure progression.

Manchester United have reached another Wembley final.

After winning the FA Cup last May under Louis van Gaal, United have the chance to win another domestic competition in Jose Mourinho‘s first season in charge.

Goals from Juan Mata and Marouane Fellaini in the first leg at Old Trafford left United in the driving seat against Marco Silva’s men in the semi-final.

But Hull gave United a scare by taking the lead in the second leg through Tom Huddlestone before Paul Pogba equalised on the night.

Hull were given hope of a late comeback through Oumar Niasse but the Reds held on.

Mourinho made five changes to his team and brought in Marcos Rojo, Matteo Darmian, Michael Carrick, Jesse Lingard andMarcus Rashford.

Anthony Martial was left out of the squad for the second game in a row, while Luke Shaw returned to the squad with a place on the bench.
