Man United vs Hull City Live
Jose Mourinho has said it is “unfair” to compare new Hull boss Marco Silva to himself, ahead of Manchester United’s EFL Cup semi-final first leg against the Tigers on Tuesday. Silva replaced former United assistant manager Mike Phelan last week and won his first game in charge on Saturday – a 2-0 win at home to Swansea in the FA Cup third round.
The 39-year-old is often likened to Mourinho given the similar starts to their careers, with Silva beginning his managerial career at Portuguese side Estoril, while the former Chelsea boss began with fellow minnows Leiria.They beat Swansea City in the FA Cup in Marco Silva’s first match in charge but finished the tie with Tom Huddlestone and Jake Livermore in central defence because of injuries.
We finished this game with our backline having a midfielder as a right-back, two midfielders like centre-backs,” said Silva, who deployed David Meyler as a makeshift full-back.
