Tom Huddlestone put the hosts ahead after 35 minutes from the penalty spot, though replays showed that United defender Marcos Rojo had barely tugged the shirt of Hull’s Harry Maguire, who tumbled to the ground prompting referee Jon Moss to award the spot kick.

But Hull were unable to turn the screw and allowed a much-improved United claw their way back into the match after the break as Paul Pogba stabbed in the equaliser.

Hull’s Oumar Niasse scored in the 85th minute to reduce the aggregate deficit to 3-2, but there was to be no fairytale comeback for the Premier League strugglers who were spirited in their efforts to overturn their 2-0 first-leg defeat.
