Manchester United just placed their fifth win in the row with a 4-0 win over Reading in the FA Cup third round fixture on Saturday. Their undefeatable crusade in all tournaments is now marked at 14 games, the longest since post-Alex Ferguson era.
Further, Rooney scored his 249th United goal to match the 44-year-old record of Sir Bobby Charlton in the game with Readings.
This will be the second semi-final match in consecutive years for Manchester. Furthermore, they were dispatched by Sunderland on penalties last season.
Hull City recorded a win in their Saturday’s FA Cup third-round fixture against Swansea City. They were winless in last seven games before two overtime goals earned them a 2-0 win over the Welsh side at the KCOM Stadium, UK.
After breaking their six-game losing streak, Hull City will be little satisfied. Moreover, they are one of the weakest defense in the league. Their last eight matches have seen them conceding 24 goals.
However, Abel Hernandez return to the team will be an advantage.
