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.

The Tigers, however, are unbeaten in their past six home League Cup matches.
