Jose Mourinho: Man Utd not EFL Cup final favourites

"Now we have a problem already, which is the fact that we don't play Manchester City when we should and then we play Europa League".

A victor with Chelsea in 2005, 2007 and 2015, Mourinho has never lost a league cup final and the United manager was delighted with the prospect of another trip to the famous stadium.

A 2-0 win at home in the first leg meant Manchester United were in a comfortable position for the second leg of their semi-final against Hull City last night.

Donald Trump's Inauguration Cake Was A Copy Job

Martial was left out of Mourinho's squad for Saturday's Premier League draw at Stoke and was given permission to take some time off.

The same fixture last season saw the Frenchman announce himself to the world, scoring *that* excellent solo goal which defines his short career so far. "I congratulate my players but I don't want to analyse the performance too much".

"I just want to say congratulations to my players because it was a hard road to be in the final and we are in the final", he said. "I think he just didn't catch with both hands a big opportunity he had", he told United Kingdom newspapers.

"I think 18 matches unbeaten is fantastic", Mourinho said, as quoted by the Daily Telegraph. I can not give to the same player chance after chance after chance and not consider the effort of the others. If we progress in the FA Cup, another round.

Hull, to their credit, didn't give up and even got a late goal to Omar Niasse tapped in from six yards after David Meyler had set him up well but United held on to progress to Wembley for their first League Cup final since 2010. "It's really hard for us but it's for good reasons - the good reasons are we progress in competitions". "We have to play with a very good team; the only player that is out is De Gea - I'll give him a few days off", Mourinho was quoted as saying by the United's official website.

"I don't know", Mourinho was quoted as telling Sky Sports when asked how Martial had reacted to being dropped. Wembley has, for professionals with passion for football, a special meaning and a special feeling.

Roger Federer "couldn't be happier" after reaching Australian Open final
