Man Utd, Liverpool kept apart in League Cup

TEAM NEWS: Rooney & Zlatan start in strong United side to face West Ham

Phil Neville believes his former club Manchester United are moving in the right direction after watching them beat West Ham in the quarter-finals of the EFL Cup.

Ibra scored twice in the 4-1 win.

Manchester United will host Hull City at Old Trafford in the first leg.

Hull needed a penalty shoot-out to see off Championship side Newcastle last night.

"If the teams arrive here, it's because they put a lot on the competition".

"I am sure that Hull City has an unbelievable memory from Wembley from last season". Liverpool have won the cup more times than any other club, eight, while United have won it four times.

Shortly after half-time Anthony Martial made the score 2 -1, with a cross from Henrikh Mkhitaryan.

West Ham manager Slaven Bilic rued his side's slow start to the match. The Armenia captain set up goals scored early in each half - by Ibrahimovic and Martial - before getting a standing ovation from United fans when substituted in the final minutes.

Ibrahimovic led from the front scoring in the second minute to hand United a second-minute lead at home here on Wednesday.

"Manchester United were at Wembley last season".

But the France global did score again six minutes later as he was picked out at the far post by Valencia, who got behind the defence with a clever pass from Ibrahimovic.

Martial had missed out on the Premier League draw against West Ham last weekend and Mourinho said rotating his squad gave him no pleasure.

"We played the game exactly how we wanted".

Asked where he watched the match, Mourinho, who wasn't spotted in the stands at Old Trafford, said: "Secret".

Arsenal were stunned at the Emirates 2-0 by Southampton who reached the league cup semi-finals for the first time since 1987. Southampton advanced to the semifinals of England's second-tier cup competition for the first time since the 1986-87 season.

The first legs will be played the week commencing January 9, with the second legs a fortnight later.
