Team News:

  • Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho has confirmed he will recall Paul Pogba, Zlatan Ibrahimovic, David De Gea and Antonio Valencia to the team for the first leg of their League Cup semi final against Hull after the quartet were rested in the FA Cup third round at the weekend
  • With Liverpool on Sunday, Mourinho may be mindful with his selection here and rest Michael Carrick after he was involved against Reading
  • Marcos Rojo lasted just 15 minutes against Reading before suffering a muscle injury and he will not feature in midweek. Luke Shaw was meant to start that match but missed his opportunity to impress due to illness and he may not play here either. Eric Bailly is away on Africa Cup of Nations duty
  • Ahmed Elmohamady and Dieumerci Mbokani are away on Africa Cup of Nations duty for the next month and will miss both legs of their League Cup semi final against Manchester United
  • Michael Dawson is a huge doubt for Tuesday’s match after coming off during their FA Cup win over Swansea with a shoulder injury. Curtis Davies is ruled out, while Harry Maguire is a massive doubts here as well. As a result, Jake Livermore may be asked to drop back into defence, as might Tom Huddlestone if neither Dawson nor Maguire recover in time
  • Silva may set up his team defensively to ensure Hull are still in the tie when they take the game back to the KC Stadium later this month

Players to watch:  Pogba & Dionamande

Prediction:  Man United 3-0 Hull City
