After last night’s emphatic 4-1 EFL Cup quarter-final victory over West Ham United at Old Trafford, Manchester United will play Hull City in the semi-final of the competition.

The EFL Cup semi-finals are two-legged affairs and, against Hull, United will play the first leg at home before travelling to the KCOM Stadium for the return fixture.

On the other side of the draw, Liverpool will play Southampton for a place in February’s final at Wembley Stadium.

The Reds beat Leeds United 2-0 at Anfiled on Tuesday to book their spot in the semis, while the Saints overcame Arsenal at the Emirates last night.

Discussing his side being drawn against the Tigers, José Mourinho said: "The two legs take a little bit of emotion out of the draw, because the situation of playing away or home doesn't exist anymore.

"I'm sure Hull have an amazing memory from Wembley [where they won the Championship Playoffs in May] and I'm sure they'll try everything to be there again.

"Manchester United were at Wembley last season. It's January so now we forget this semi-final, but hopefully we can reach the final."

The semi-final first leg ties will take place in the week commencing 9 January 2017.
