Manchester United beat out Hull in League Cup

Manchester United have one foot in the League Cup final after a late Marouane Fellaini header gave them a 2-0 win over Hull City in the first leg of their last four clash.

Juan Mata put United ahead early in the second half of what had looked like being a frustrating night for Jose Mourinho's side, before Fellaini rose at the far post to head home with three minutes remaining.

It was United's ninth straight win overall and extended their unbeaten run to 15 games.
