Henrikh-Mkhitaryan-Manchester-United

Manchester United will be looking to take control of the tie when they entertain Hull City in their EFL Cup semi-final first leg at Old Trafford tonight.

Jose Mourinho has recalled his big-guns for the game after resting several key men for Saturday’s FA Cup third round win over Reading at Old Trafford.

David De Gea returns in goal while Phil Jones comes in to partner Chris Smalling in the middle of defence. Antonio Valencia starts at right-back while Matteo Darmian comes in at left-back.

Michael Carrick gets a rest in midfield with Paul Pogba alongside Ander Herrera while Henrikh Mkhitaryan and Juan Mata start on the wings.

Zlatan Ibrahimovic isn’t named in the squad so Marcus Rashford keeps his place up front after scoring twice at the weekend while Wayne Rooney also keeps his place in attack after breaking United’s all-time goal scoring record on Saturday.

Here are the confirmed line-ups:

Man Utd

De Gea; Valencia, Jones, Smalling, Darmian; Herrera, Pogba; Mata, Rooney, Mkhitaryan; Rashford.

Subs: Romero, Blind, Fosu-Mensah, Carrick, Fellaini, Lingard, Martial

Hull City
