Southampton and Manchester United joined Liverpool and Hull City in the last four of the League Cup with impressive victories over Arsenal and West Ham respectively.

Claude Puel’s Saints produced an excellent display to comfortably beat Arsene Wenger’s Gunners 2-0 at the Emirates, with goals from Jordy Clasie and Ryan Bertrand sealing their place in the semi-finals of a competition they have yet to win in their 131-year history.

They are joined in the last four by Jose Mourinho’s United who, with their manager banned from the stadium for kicking a bottle in their draw against West Ham, scored four to get the better of Slaven Bilic’s side this time around.

Braces from Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Anthony Martial (Pictured) secured a much-needed win for the Red Devils, with Ashley Fletcher’s first-half equaliser little more than a blemish on a decent United performance.

The draw for the semi-finals was also made last night, with Southampton to face Jurgen Klopp’s Liverpool, and Hull’s reward for beating Newcastle on penalties on Tuesday night is a two-legged contest against Mourinho’s United.

Unsurprisingly, after an exciting night of cup action, many took to Twitter to express their views on yesterday’s game, and it was Southampton that deservedly stole the limelight, with many Saints fans thrilled at their side’s display at the Emirates last night…
