The Red Devils are in good shape to book their place in the EFL Cup final, but the Portuguese manager is not impressed by his side's own fans

Jose Mourinho has demanded a better Old Trafford atmosphere when Manchester United play Liverpool after Hull City were despatched amid eerie EFL Cup acoustics.

Goals from Juan Mata and Marouane Fellaini saw off a patchwork Hull side on Tuesday as United put one foot in another Wembley final.

A ninth win in succession was met with a lukewarm response through much of the contest from the home fans, despite Mourinho's gesturing for the volume to be raised at half-time.

And with Liverpool arriving at Old Trafford on Sunday in a fixture between sides separated by five points in the Premier League table, Mourinho wants the crowd to fire up.

"I was disappointed yes, [Hull] were very well organised defensively as I was expecting and it was not easy for us," Mourinho told Sky Sports.

"But I think we were a bit sloppy, complicating things, always one more touch, delaying the decision, giving them time to regroup and it was not our best first half.
