United on verge of reaching Wembley

Manchester United shortened to 4-5 to win the EFL Cup after second half goals from Juan Mata and Marouane Fellaini handed them a 2-0 victory over Hull in Tuesday's semi-final, first leg at Old Trafford.

Hull have a mountain to climb in the second leg at the Kcom Stadium and are 20-1 with Sky Bet to reach the final. United are 1-200 with Sky Bet to reach the final and 2-5 to win the second leg.

Boylesports bet on the number of trophies United will win this season and go 2-5 one or more, 3-1 two or more and 25-1 three or more.

The match was costly for Hull, who lost Josh Tymon and Markus Henriksen to injuries.

Henriksen (shoulder) is not expected to feature in Saturday's Premier League game at home to Bournemouth but Tymon (leg) has a good chance of recovering.
