Juan Mata and Marouane Fellaini scored in the second half as Manchester United secured a 2-0 win over Hull City.
Juan Mata has backed Manchester United midfielder Marouane Fellaini to flourish after a morale-boosting night.
Jose Mourinho did not shy away from criticising both players and fans, urging them to be better for the Liverpool clash.
United beat the Tigers 2-0 at Old Trafford in the semifinal first leg but struggled to break them down until Juan Mata struck in the 56th minute.
Lallana, 28, made a £25 million move to Anfield in 2014 after having been with Southampton since the age of 12.
Hull should be proud of this result given a laundry list of injury and illness in the team, with Tom Huddlestone up for particular praise in defeat.
