Liverpool, Man U looking likely for EFL Cup final




Heavyweights Manchester United and Liverpool are on course to meet in the final of the EFL Cup after being drawn on opposite sides of the semi-final draw.

Liverpool will meet Southampton, who knocked out Arsenal today with a 2-0 win at the Emirates Stadium.

The win puts Southampton in the last four of the competition for the first time since the 1986-87 season.

Liverpool, winners of the cup a record eight times and finalists in 2016, saw off Leeds yesterday with a 2-0 victory at Anfield.

In the other semi-final, Manchester United play Hull.

United beat West Ham 4-1 at Old Trafford, while Hull needed penalties to get past Newcastle following extra-time in their tie on Tuesday.

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