Manchester United were made to toil on Tuesday night but somehow overcame a determined Hull City side, thanks to second-half goals from Juan Mata and Marouane Fellaini.

The Red Devils go into the away leg of the EFL Cup semi-finals with a brilliant opportunity to make their first final under Jose Mourinho, as they travel to face the Tigers with a 2-0 lead from the first leg.

As was aptly pointed out, it looks like the Red Devils can’t stop winning.

But, it was Juan Mata, who took the plaudits, as he scored United’s opener at a time when the fixture looked to heading towards a frustrating draw.

The other goalscorer, Fellaini, who has received his fair share of criticism, was also on the receiving end of positive stuff, with the fans especially praising the moment when he went and hugged Mourinho after scoring the goal.
