Who Will Southhampton be facing up against in the final of the EFL Cup at Wembley? The Saints pulled off a great 1-0 win at Anfield in the second leg of their last four clash with Liverpool on Wednesday night, winning the tie 2-0 on aggregate outright. So that puts the Saints in their first League Cup final since 1979 and just out of interest, the Saints haven’t conceded a goal all through this season’s competition. Remarkable stuff and they won’t be taken lightly by whoever meets them at Wembley.
It is expected that it will be Manchester United heading there to have a crack at the first piece of silverware on offer for the season against the Saints. The Red Devils head off to Hull on Thursday night to try and book their place at Wembley and they are in a position of power as well heading into it as they landed a 2-0 first leg win at Old Trafford against the battling Tigers. It didn’t help the Tigers that they went there with a patched up defense as well because of injuries.
So now Manchester United, who have already taken a Premier League win at the KCom this season, will be on cruise control as they play out the 90 minutes against the Tigers. The Red Devils are on a cracking run of 17 matches unbeaten across all competitions and they have gone unbeaten in their last thirteen games against Hull in all competitions as well, winning twelve of those. So it all looks rosy for Mourinho men here as they look to make it back to the final for the first time since the 2010 final when they beat Aston Villa.
The Red Devils haven’t shipped a goal in any of their last four against the Tigers now and are likely to get through to face Southampton without too many issues and therefore this is a great opportunity to go and land yourself a big bonus price on Manchester United winning the second leg of this EFL Cup semi final, as bookmaker Coral are running a big promotion on the game.
