Hull City vs Manchester United Live Score and Commentary

Hull City
FT
2 - 1
Manchester United
T. Huddlestone (P) 35'
O. Niasse 85'
66' P. Pogba
...
PEEP! PEEP! IT'S OVER!

Manchester United go through 3-2 aggregate. 

A dour United side have been defeated for the first time in nearly  months - ending a 17 game unbeaten streak - but it't the larger picture that counts.. and Pogba has just ensured that Manchester United will face off against Southampton in the EFL Cup final. 

Despite my reservations after watching the first twenty horrible minutes, this was a fairly entertaining game to cover. Thank you for sticking around!

Toodle-ooo
...
94' Rooney and Herrera try to keep the ball in the corner, but the Englishman gives a freekick by bundling over Evandro... but it doesn't matter..
...
93' Huddlestone tries a stepover or two ... because, why not, before Fellaini intercepts and Zlatan and Pogba combine to win a corner. Last kick of the game coming up, arguably 
...
92' Zlatan tries to pick out Rooney, but his ball is easily intercepted. He tries again, but the Englishman has strolled offside. This gives Mourinho the chance to take off Rashford and bring on... ding! ding! ding! we have a winner.. Marouane Fellaini
...
91' Rooney and Ibra try to be too intircate with their passing and it allows Hull City to recover possession and break. This counter, though, ends harmlessly. There will be three minutes of added time!
...
90' United still leave 3-2 on aggregate and will look to close out this game in trademark Mourinho smile.
...
89' Lad needs to work on his crossing, though.
...
88' Hull fans have found their voices again as their team press forward in desperate search of a goal that would take this game into Extra Time. It's all being led by the indomitable Oumar Niassse who is everywhere!!
...
87' Rojo flies into a challenge with trademark 'gusto' but it was not all that bad, but it certainly deserved a booking.. and Moss obliges.
...
86' This has certainly added spice to the fixture again!
...
That came a little out of the blue, but what a goal!! Markovic picked out a flying Meyler down the right where he was inexplicably left with acres of space. He wasted no time in placing a lovely first time cushioned pass onto the path of Niasse, who could hardly miss from there.
...
84' GOOOOOOOAAAL!!! NIASSE!!
...
83' Rashford is absolutely terrorising Tymon down that right flank now. This time he manages to work the ball across to Paul Pogba whose low whipped delivery is just about frantically cleared by Dawson and Marshall before Zlatan can tap it... Never mind, the ref had blown (wrongly as it turns out) for offside on Pogba. 
...
82' Rashford is tugged back by Tymon who knows he is well and truly beaten. Again, could - and should - have been a yellow/  
...
80' Rashford ghosts past two Hull players down the wing, and then the touchline, but the introduction of a third in the form of Harry Maguire sees him lose the ball out. What pace this lad has though... UFF
...
79' Hull win a succession of corners as Niasse finds new pace in his legs following his superb effort.. but this time Evandro's deadly looking delivery is well headed away by Darmian. 
...
78' UFF! FROM THE CORNER, NIASSE GETS A BRILLIANT HEADER THAT CLATTERS OF THE BAR WITH A BOOM! Meanwhile, United make a SUBSTITUTION as Wayne Rooney comes on for Jesse Lingard. Time for wise heads, if ever there was any..
...
77' Both sides look a bit aimless here, but Hull has not stopped trying. Niasse powers his way into the box before laying it off to Hernandez, whose shot has to be blocked by Smalling., 
...
75' Their joy is amplified as ex-Liverpool man Markovic sends the ball back to Merseyside with a horrendous shank from inside the box.
...
74' United fans are in fine form in the KCOM as they belt out their best rendition of "ARE YOU WATCHING.. ARE YOU WATCHING... ARE YOU WATCHING, MERSEYSIDE!"
...
72' Zlatan has started popping out the party tricks as he leaves Huddlestone confounded with a move right out of the top drawer.. from the corner.. ROJO SMACKS A SUPERB HEADER AGAINST THE BAR. MARSHALL WAS GETTING NOWHERE NEAR THAT! An inch or two lower, and that was a goal.
...
71' Niasse tries to bundle his way into the box, but only ends up bundling Smalling over. United look far more relaxed on and off the ball now.  
...
69' Zlatan tries to play Rashford in quickly, but its a rather rash ball and it runs out harmlessly. Hull make their third and final substitution as Diomande goes to be replaced by Abel Hernandez
...
67' Rashford tries to take the long way around Meyler (think Bale v Maicon) but the Hull man is too wily a customer to let that happen and wins a freekick. The ball is soon back at United feet though...
...
What a move. Finally the men in white put together a good series of passes that started with Carrick to Ibrahimovic then Zlatan to Rashford and ended up with Paul Pogba sliding in to tap the ball into the back of the net. 1-1 on the day, and 3-1 on aggregate. That really ought to be that. 
...
66' GOOOOOAL!! POGBAAAAA!!!
...
65' Lingard steals the ball off a complacent Clucas and United move forward.....
...
64' Another loose pass leads to a Hull goal kick and Hull use this opportunity to introduce yet another one of their new recruits - the Brazilian Evandro, formerly of Porto. He comes on in place of Shaun Maloney
...
63' Lingard and Rashford combine well to get in behind Hull's defence - after a De Gea punt up the field - but the young striker had wandered a good foot offside. 
...
61' Ibrahimovic sparks another attack and Rashford ghosts past Meyler before going down in the box - as the old cliche goes,  I've seen those given. A loose Darmian touch gifts Hull the possession. 
...
59' Rashford does his defensive duties and wins a throw off the marauding Meyler. Meanwhile SUBSTITUTION as the rather impressive Jared Bowen comes of for yet another one of Hull's intriguing new signings - Lazar Markovic
...
57' A high foot from Rojo gives Clucas to whip the ball in from a fairly dangerous position. Darmian heads it away, but Hull have the ball at their feet and are building some momentum of their own.
...
56' United seem injected with a fresh bit of adrenaline, but an agricultural hack from Darmian that gives possession away has Zlatan screaming expetive in... probably Italian - so the right back can understand him better. 
...
55' A fourth corner leads to more concentrated United pressure before Bowen holds off Rashford and wins the goalkick. The two then get into a little bit of physical confrontation, but it all simmers down pretty quickly
...
54' OH MY CONTROVERSY THY NAME IS JON MOSS! Chris Smalling is pushed over by Tom Huddelstone like he is a crate of Coke and the Englishman is a Tamilian particular upset with the beverages giant. Poor, poor, officiating. 
...
53' That one leads to yet another as Carrick pumps it back in from the original setpiece. This time Harry Maguire tries to be a little too fancy and concedes a third straight corner.
...
52' Arguably United's best move of the game ends with Rojo finding Lingard with a sliderule pass and thhe Englishman worrying Meyler before winning a corner. 
...
51' Niasse tries to whip a cross into the box. It ends up clattering into someone behind United's goal.  
...
49' Rashford is a touch too over exuberant as he tries to harry and hustle Meyler, and gives away the freekick. From it, Niasse gives Jones a scare by chasing a long ball, but the Englishman maintains a calm head to play it out. Hull are dominating Man United all over again - I cant understand the timidity of what is on paper the palpably superior team. 
...
48' Carrick has just had a clash with Diamonde and the big Hull striker is in need of the attentions of the medical staff. From the resulting freekick, Maloney whips in a ball that is comfortably cleared by Jones
