FT: Hull City 2-1 Man United. The Red Devils are in the final! Niasse's late goal made it more nervy than they would have liked but they triumph 3-2 on aggregate thanks to Pogba's equaliser. Huddlestone had given Hull hope of turning it around with a first-half penalty as City continue to improve under Silva. United's unbeaten run ends after 17 matches but the bigger picture is that they will now meet Southampton on February 26 in a showdown for the trophy.

Niasse causing problems down the right. He drills a low cross in that United hack clear.

Poor defending from United for that Niasse goal. They switched off and didn't pick up the striker or Meyler who was left in acres to cross.
- GoalOumar NiasseHull City
GOAL! Hull have a lifeline. Niasse taps in at the far post after Meyler ghosted into space on the right of the box and volleyed a first-time cross into his path. 3-2 to United on agg. Hull have five minutes plus added time to take this into ET.
Almost a tap-in for Zlatan at the far post - but Pogba was offside as he made the dart into the right of the area before firing a low ball into the six-yard box.
Hull still have hope but time is ticking down.
Fantastic pace from Rashford on the right. He drives to the byline but sees his cross blocked.

Markovic arrives on a loose ball on the right of the area but crashes a first-time effort well over the bar.
OFF THE BAR! Rojo meets the left-wing corner but sees his header smack against the woodwork and fly over.

FINAL HULL CHANGE: Diomande off, Hernandez on.
Now the United fans are singing 'Are you watching Merseyside' in reference to Liverpool's defeat to Southampton in the other semi last night.
The United fans in full voice again now.
That will surely be the killer blow. United looking Wembley bound. That goal was coming.

Hull bringing on Markovic for his bow shortly.
Sam Clucas delivers a set piece towards the far post but United easily work it away.
The inevitable conclusion...
Hull just about surviving United's best period of the match. The hosts need to try to and wrestle back some momentum now.
Looked like that could easily have been given. United quite rightly frustrated given that they felt the Hull one was soft.
UNITED PENALTY APPEAL! Smalling controls Carrick's lofted ball back into the area and tumbles under pressure from Huddlestone. Big shout for a spot kick but Jon Moss waves away the appeals.
Bowen races back to nod behind after Hull had gone to sleep defending the second ball from a corner. Pressure building for United.

KICK OFF! Hull restart the contest. They lead on the night, but United hold a 2-1 advantage on aggregate.
- End of 1st Half
HT: Hull 1-0 Man Utd. Huddlestone's penalty has sparked this tie into life. The hosts have been the better side but still trail 2-1 on aggregate.
One minute added.
Have been more impressed with Hull since Marco Silva took charge.
United could well be set for a HT rocket from Mourinho.
It was a cracking spot kick from Huddlestone. Had to hit the corner as De Gea had guessed the right way.
Hull making a decent go of this. Maloney tries a disguised through pass but it's easily cut out with Niasse well placed.
Hull defend the corner. Big pat on the back for the stopper.
Ibrahimovic leads a break for United. He races at Dawson and curves a shot around the defender from 20 yards that looks to be heading for the corner until David Marshall intervenes with a smart save.
That was Huddlestone's first goal this term. Tie on? United not happy with the award of the penalty. They felt it was harsh.
- Goal by penaltyTom HuddlestoneHull City
GOAL! Huddlestone drills the penalty beyond the dive of De Gea to reduce the arrears. Hull lead on the night and trail 2-1 on aggregate.
PENALTY TO HULL! United make a meal of defending the corner and it looks like Rojo is penalised for tugging back Maguire at the far post.
Meyler floats a first-time cross to the far post but Darmian is there to put it behind for a corner. Nice, flowing move from the hosts. Can they make an impact from one of these set pieces?
Hull have had a couple of decent situations so far. Not as one-sided as many were predicting up to this juncture anyway.
Niasse tries to drive at the United defence but runs straight into trouble. Needed to get his head up there.
Good to see all sections making some noise for Mason a few moments ago.
Maloney takes aim but arrows his free kick over the bar.
Diasse wins a free kick just outside the United area. sloppy from the visitors.
CLOSE! United go to sleep clearing their lines and Tom Huddlestone hoists a high one back into the middle. Dawson can't quite get a shot away, but Niasse's first-time drive on the follow-up is blocked by De Gea.
Herrera's delivery makes it's way all the way through too Zlatan who drills in a low cross at the second attempt that Adama Diomande manages to hack clear from within his own six-yard box.
Free kick to United on the right flank after Maguire fouled Lingard in full flow.
The Tigers are unbeaten in their last six home League Cup matches (W3 D3), scoring exactly once in each match - but that wouldn't be enough tonight. They need two without reply just force ET.
Not great reading for Hull fans!
Lingard given a talking to by the referee for a late tackle on Dawson as he completed an important clearance.
Hull clear the resulting corner. Decent effort from Rojo. It was on target before the touch off a defender.
Rojo takes a pass from Pogba's and fizzes in a low 25-yard drive that deflects just wide.
STAT: The only two teams Hull have played more often than Man United (5) at the KCOM without winning are Arsenal and Chelsea (both six games).
PHOTO: Niasse is challenged by Lingard.
A good couple of minutes for Hull. Signs that they can cause United a few nervy moments.
Hull haven’t scored in any of their last four matches against United – their last scorer was Matty Fryatt in a Premier League clash in May 2014.
Samuel Clucas flashes the free kick over the wall but it's straight at De Gea who punches it clear.
- Yellow cardPhil JonesManchester United
Phil Jones booked for blocking Niasse's enterprising run. Free kick to Hull in a good position 25 yards out, right of centre.
Harry Maguire skies a volley over the bar after chesting down a poor headed clearance from a left-wing corner. Best moment of the match so far.
Not much to shout about so far. Hull offering little and United content to bide their time given their first-leg advantage.
DID YOU KNOW? Manchester United have progressed to the final on each of the three previous occasions they have won the first leg of a League Cup semi-final, doing so in 1982/83 against Arsenal, 1990/91 against Leeds United and 1993/94 against Sheffield Wednesday.
United starting to knock the ball about with the confidence of a side in control of the tie and on such a long unbeaten run.
A reminder of how history is against Hull too: 26 of the 27 previous occasions of a side losing a League Cup semi-final first leg by two or more goals have resulted in that side going out – the exception was Aston Villa in 1993/94, who lost 3-1 to Tranmere Rovers in the first leg before winning the second leg 3-1 and triumphing 5-4 on penalties.
Plenty of empty seats in the home stands. United fans in full voice.
Plenty of early possession for this much-changed Hull side. United are 17 matches unbeaten, so it's going to take something very special to make this into more than a formality.
STAT: Manchester United have won 12 and lost none of their last 13 matches against Hull City in all competitions (D1).
- 1st Half
KICK OFF! Hull get us underway. A big ask for City to overturn the 2-0 first-leg deficit.
Wayne Rooney has had a hand in five goals in his last four appearances at the KCOM Stadium for Man United (two goals, three assists) - but he's on the bench tonight despite becoming United's all-time leading scorer with a last-gasp free-kick to rescue a draw at Stoke.
STAT: Manchester United have won nine of their last 10 League Cup semi-final second leg matches, with their only defeat in this time coming against Chelsea in 2004/05.
United have never lost a match at the KCOM Stadium, winning four and drawing one in five previous Premier League clashes there. Their last away defeat to Hull came in November 1974 at Boothferry Park in a Second Division match under the management of Tommy Docherty.
On Wednesday night, Southampton stunned Liverpool to secure a deserved 1-0 success at Anfield (2-0 on aggregate) and book a spot in the final for the first time since 1979.
FIRST-LEG RECAP: Juan Mata and Marouane Fellaini were on target as United were too strong for Hull in the second-half of the second leg.
Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho: "I knew that Marco was such a good coach that the team would really improve. He still has a very difficult job in hand, still a big fight with some other five, six, seven teams for relegation, but a good coach. Very good." Mourinho added: "It's nice to win a competition but I don't think it's crucial to do well after that. We go competition by competition and match after match. It's going to be really difficult. I have a board with all the matches and possible matches on my office wall and when I look at it the image is quite complicated."
Hull City manager Marco Silva: "It's clear we need players in those positions(midfield). When I came I had in my mind when I started training and started to analyse our games, I had one opinion. During these last four games some things have happened, some injuries also, and Jake [Livermore] has left and we need to pay attention to these situations also. We need to do our best in this window for these positions and for the other positions also."
Jose Mourinho has named a strong side with the likes of Paul Pogba and Zlatan Ibrahimovic in the starting xi. The Red Devils' boss makes five changes from the team that drew with Stoke last time out. Marcus Rashford comes into the attack with Matteo Darmian, Marcos Rojo, Michael Carrick and Jesse Lingard also involved.
Hull have made seven changes to the team that were beaten at Chelsea. Marco Silva brings in 20-year-old hitman, Jarrod Bowen up top with Everton loanee, Oumar Niasse also involved. Lazar Markovic is named on the bench after joining on loan from Liverpool.
