Manchester United midfielder, Michael Carrick has revealed his disappointment with the Red Devils’ loss to Hull City on Thursday night.

United struggled into the final of the English Football League Cup despite losing 2-1 to Hull City on Thursday.

The Red Devils lost to the Tigers in the semi-final second leg match which held at KCom Stadium.

Paul Pogba’s goal booked United’s spot in the EFL Cup final despite the Red Devils loss, though.

And despite the loss against the struggling Premier League club, United have still qualified for the final 3-2 on aggregate.

Hull had failed to even register a goal in four games against United prior to the match on Thursday night.

However, midfielder, Tom Huddlestone put the Tigers ahead when he converted a spot-kick late in the first half.

The England international scored his first goal of the 2016/17 season across all competitions.

Manchester United’s 17-match unbeaten run finally came to a halt with the defeat to Hull.

Carrick agrees that United did not play well enough despite manager, Jose Mourinho naming a solid starting eleven squad.

“I would not say we feel relief,” Carrick disclosed to Sky Sports.

“We are disappointed with the way we played and lost the game.

“It is a strange feeling because we actually wanted to win and keep our run going.

“But we didn’t play well at all although, we are delighted to be in the final, it’s a strange feeling.

“We didn’t believe we were through after the first leg and we expected a tough game.

“And for them to come at us and we didn’t play well for a number of reasons.

“We don’t like losing and we’ve lost but we can play the final and we’re delighted to be there.

“United have got a game on Sunday in the FA Cup against Wigan Athletic so we’ll get ready for that.

“But we can look forward to the final, it’s a big thing as you don’t get many chances to win things.

“We don’t like losing and we lost so it is very disappointing.” Carrick summed up.
