That's a wrap

That's all from us tonight, sounds like it will be a busy end to the transfer window for Hull City, while Jose Mourinho and co can look forward to a cup final next month.

Adios! 

Good enough to stay up?

On this performance and others there is no way that Hull is destined for the drop.

Oumar Niasse's last goal before tonight was for Lokomotiv Moscow in December 2015.

It came in Albania of all places, against Skenderbeu in the Europa League. 

'We need three or four players'

Hull City

Hull manager Marco Silva: "It was a good win but not enough for our goal. It is important to win the game but the result in the first leg caused problems for us.

"It was a good performance again, a good attitude and we controlled the game in large periods against a big team. It is impossible at this moment to feel really happy.

"The goal we conceded is not a normal goal, we lost control at the vital moment. 

"It is important that we won the game. We have won three games in a row at home and when I arrived we had won once in two months. I congratulated the players in the dressing room.

"Sure I hope to improve the squad with three or four players. We need them. We have 15 or 16 players, it's not normal at this level."

End of the run

Hull 2-1 Manchester United (Agg: 2-3)

Despite progressing, Manchester United’s 17-game unbeaten run has come to an end, with their first defeat against Hull since November 1974.

'A work in progress'

I must admit, Man Utd are still a work in progress, of that there can be no doubt.

They did not play well tonight, they will play a lot better, but there has been real progress.

They seriously lost their way after Sir Alex Ferguson - they are some way towards that but still some way off it.

Ben Virdee: Mourinho must do something with these players when it comes to big games, whenever we need to win we play absolutely terrible!

Prof Bananas: Can you believe Silva was sacked once for not wearing the club's official suit? Crazy stuff! Go Tigers

I think it's fair to say that Jose Mourinho was not happy with the penalty decision given against his team, and the one that his side was not given in the second half. 

'No more words'

Hull 2-1 Manchester United (Agg: 2-3)

Manchester United

Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho: "I just want to say congratulations to my players. It was a difficult road to be in the final and we are in the final.

"I don't want to say anything else. It is enough, I am calm, I behaved on the bench, no sending off, no punishment so no more words."

Jose Mourinho's post-match interview was about seven seconds long.

Ready?

'A strange feeling'

Hull 2-1 Manchester United (Agg: 2-3)

Manchester United

Manchester United captain Michael Carrick: "I wouldn't say we were relieved, we are disappointed in the way we played and losing the game. We wanted to keep our run going and we didn't play well at all. Of course we are delighted to reach the final but it's a strange feeling.

"We expected a tough game, they had to come at us, and we just didn't play well. We don't like losing and we've lost but we are in the final.

"You don't get many chances to win a trophy so we have to grab that chance."

Hull 2-1 Manchester United (Agg: 2-3)

I don't think I've seen Hull actually play badly any time I've seen them this season, but they keep on losing games. Can they stay up?

Ally McCoist

Hull fans have got to be delighted with the performance tonight. They must think they have just beaten one of the better sides in English football - that must give them hope.

They have some good football players who know what to do with the ball.

Manchester United have got to the final but they did not play well.

Matt Harding: All about the result tonight. Good reality check too for a complacent Utd side. Need to improve, but WEM-BER-LEY!!!!

James Foster: That was an awful display from Man Utd. Second best all around, it's a wonder we're through to the final...

Paul Jewitt: there was a time when Man U fielded weak sides in this cup and teams like Hull took it seriously. How times have changed.

Hats off Niasse

Ally McCoist

Niasse is extremely direct, very physical, not the easiest on the eye but one of those players who makes things happen when he gets the ball. He was very impressive.

If you're a Hull fan you have to be delighted, particularly with Niasse. They must be thinking they have a wee chance of staying up.

Pulling his weight?

Paul Pogba scored his seventh goal of the season in all competitions – only Zlatan Ibrahimovic has more for the Red Devils this season (19).

I have to tell you, Hull City deserve all the credit tonight. We couldn't see them winning the game. I didn't think for a minute they would be close to taking the game into extra time. Manchester United deservedly into the final over two games but Hull City can take a lot from tonight.

Have your say

Manchester United fans, your thoughts?

Hull fans, pleased with Marco Silva so far?

Well that was a thoroughly entertaining watch in the end! Hull City give it a real good go but in the end Paul Pogba's toe-poke proved crucial.

Jose Mourinho will have the chance to win his first trophy at Old Trafford next month.

FULL-TIME

Hull 2-1 Manchester United (Agg: 2-3)

Hull 2-1 Manchester United (Agg: 2-3)

United can break, Zlatan does well to just kill some time and find Paul Pogba on the wing. Pogba beats his man and then wins a corner. No rush...

SUBSTITUTION

Hull 2-1 Manchester United (Agg: 2-3)

Marcus Rashford off, on comes Marouane Fellaini. 

Jose takes a drink

Jose Mourinho sat down for a bit, got back up, took a drink, walked around.

This semi-final has become far more stressful than he expected.

Hull 2-1 Manchester United (Agg: 2-3)

Harry Maguire runs it out from defence, a great break again but he gets a nosebleed and tries a shot from all of 30 yards instead of laying it off. He had men over.

INJURY TIME

Hull 2-1 Manchester United (Agg: 2-3)

There will be three minutes added on...

Is it safe to say that at the beginning of the game we did not see ourselves sitting in this position, with Hull pushing for a goal to take us to extra time?

Hull 2-1 Manchester United (Agg: 2-3)

So a Hull goal gives us extra time, but they would need another one in extra time or United would win on away goals. Which only count after extra time.

The wildcard Oumar Niasse gets away from his man on the right but then blazes a cross wildly over the top. He could score goals in the stretch for Hull though. An absolute handful.

YELLOW CARD

Hull 2-1 Manchester United (Agg: 2-3)

Marcos Rojo is booked. Hull free-kick, last three minutes. Get them all up! One goal and we have extra time. 

Hull 2-1 Manchester United (Agg: 2-3)

Ally McCoist

That is what Niasse has given us from the left-hand side.

That is absolutely amazing. He is one of these guys - something happens around him, he will get the bounce of the ball, he will give away free-kicks. Things happen.

GOAL - Hull 2-1 Manchester United (Agg: 2-3)

Oumar Niasse

A goal Everton fans may have thought they would not live to see, Oumar Niasse bags! He starts the move on the left, bulldozing through Marcos Rojo and the ball is then swung over to the right. David Meyler comes in off the line and cushions the ball across goal with a great volley, and Niasse followed in to bury from close range.

One more would force extra time. 

Hull 1-1 Manchester United (Agg: 1-3)

Marcus Rashford beats his man every time, he starts another attack and when Ander Herrera picks out Paul Pogba, his low cross/shot is pushed clear by David Marshall. 

Hull 1-1 Manchester United (Agg: 1-3)

Marcus Rashford is great to watch, he really is. Electric pace sees him burn past two defenders on the right wing when he had no right to, he cuts into the middle but eventually overruns the ball and Hull clear their lines. 

Unlucky

Hull 1-1 Manchester United (Agg: 1-3)

Ally McCoist

Former Scotland striker on BBC Radio 5 live

Niasse is really unlucky, he really is. It's a brilliant header onto the bar, De Gea had no chance. That would have made for a brilliant last 15 minutes.

He held Jones off well, he's obviously a physical player.

SUBSTITUTION

Hull 1-1 Manchester United (Agg: 1-3)

Wayne Rooney is on for Jesse Lingard as Hull force another corner. They are having a real go. 

HITS THE WOODWORK

Hull 1-1 Manchester United (Agg: 1-3)

Unlucky! Oumar Niasse shrugs off Phil Jones to meet the corner and thumps it against the crossbar, David de Gea didn't move!

That would have made life interesting. 

Hull 1-1 Manchester United (Agg: 1-3)

Still no changes for Jose Mourinho as we tick into the final 15 minutes. Marcus Rashford fancies a goal tonight but he's well challenged by Harry Maguire. 

Abel Hernandez then has a sight of goal for Hull but slices a shot wide. Via a deflection.
