Hull City come into this fixture after suffering a 2-0 defeat at the hands of Chelsea at Stamford Bridge in the Premier League. Diego Costa was on the scoresheet to give the Blues a lead before Gary Cahill doubled the lead.

Cahill clashed his head with the Tigers midfielder Ryan Mason and the latter was left with a fractured skull. Hull confirmed their player is in stable condition, but Marco Silva admitted the injury had its impact on the players.

United enter this tie after a 1-1 draw against Stoke City. Wayne Rooney came to the rescue as he scored his 250th goal in the stoppage time in helping the Red Devils avoid a defeat. Jose Mourinho will be pushing for a win on Thursday.

In the first leg, United sealed a 2-0 comfortable win over Hull. A draw or a win is sufficient for the Red Devils to make it to the final of the EFL Cup of this season.
