MAN UNITED'S big guns will return tonight and that's bad news for Hull in the EFL Cup semi-final first leg.

The likes of David de Gea, Paul Pogba and Zlatan Ibrahmovic were rested as United showed their squad depth with a 4-0 rout of Reading in the FA Cup.

Jose Mourinho will be back at full strength with Wembley just one step away and that's bad news for Hull.

New boss Marco Silva played a half-strength outfit as he started with a cup success against Swansea and his focus will be on picking up vital points when Bournemouth visit on Saturday.

United are on a run of eight wins in a row and will be looking to put this one to bed at Old Trafford.

Odds suggest bookies expect a thumping and I can see them winning by three or four against visitors concerned only about avoiding the drop.

Finding value is tough with United no bigger than 1-5 at William Hill you can have them at 3-5 with sportingbet to win by two or more.

Man Utd -2 is possible at 8-5 with sportingbet and by backing -2AH at 42-41 you'll have the stake refunded if Mourinho's men win by two.

For anyone fancying a surprise Hull are 18-1 at boylesports with the draw 13-2 at bet365.

Ibrahimovic has netted 12 in his last 12 games and will be well backed to score first at 11-4 with Betfred. To net at any time he is 4-5.

Pogba has pinged in two in his last five and is 11-2 at McBookie to break the deadlock.

Hull's dangerman Robert Snodgrass played against Swansea but I'm not sure if he'll be risked here. If he starts he is worth a look as an anytime scorer at 5-1 with McBookie.

    Hull city are also one step away to Wembley and who wouldn’t want to play in a cup final?
    Not arguing but Hull can get draw and if they can get a score draw then pressure will be on Man United in second leg at Hull’s ground. I like the look of Hull city Hull +1 AH or Double Chance for small stake.
