Manchester United will play Hull in the semi-finals of the EFL Cup, while Liverpool will take on Southampton.

United, who beat West Ham 4-1 in the last eight, will play the first leg of their semi-final at Old Trafford.

Southampton, comfortable winners over Arsenal on Wednesday, will host in-form Liverpool at St Mary's before the return leg at Anfield.

The two-legged semi-final ties will be played in the weeks commencing 9 and 23 January 2017.

Liverpool, winners of the competition a record eight times and finalists in 2016, saw off Leeds on Tuesday with a 2-0 win at Anfield.

Hull, who reached the FA Cup final in 2014, needed penalties to overcome Championship leaders Newcastle on Tuesday.
