Southampton will feature in this season’s English Football League cup final after defeating Liverpool 2-0 over two semi-final legs.
Tonight, the Saints will find out who they’ll face in the showpiece event on 26th February at Wembley Stadium as Hull City welcomes Manchester United to the KCOM Stadium.
The Tigers have it all to do in front of their own fans after losing the first leg 2-0, with Marouane Fellaini’s 87th-minute strike putting United firmly in the driving seat.
Manchester United have progressed to the final on each of the three previous occasions they have won the first leg of a League Cup semi-final, doing so in 1982-83 against Arsenal, 1990-91 against Leeds United and 1993-94 against Sheffield Wednesday.
The Tigers, however, are unbeaten in their past six home League Cup matches.
Coverage starts at 7.30pm on Sky Sports 1 and Sky Sports 1 HD with live streaming on Now TV and Sky Go. Kick-off 7.45pm.
Highlights of this match – and Liverpool v Southampton – will be shown on Channel 5 from 10.45pm tonight!
