Armenian National team’s captain Henrikh Mkhitaryan helped Manchester United win a first-leg victory over Hull City in the semi-final of the EFL Cup at Old Trafford on Tuesday night.
United dominated as expected but a very underwhelming atmosphere helped Hull City to grind out 0-0 in first 45 minutes. The visitors had chances of their own against a side who had won their eight previous games in all competitions, Robert Snodgrass causing problems from set-pieces.
However, Juan Mata got the breakthrough just before the hour mark when he tapped in from Henrikh Mkhitaryan’s knockdown.
Substitute Fellaini scored a second late on, heading in from Matteo Darmian’s cross to put United in command heading into the second leg on 26 January.
