Man Utd vs Coventry FA Cup Semi-Final: All you need to know and the Road to Wembley

- Advertisement -

Manchester United have made it to the FA Cup semi-finals to face Coventry City. Here is the date, time, how to watch, TV channel UK and everything else you need to know about the fixture.

If there’s a trophy that Erik ten Hag is desperate to get his hands on, it simply has to be the FA Cup. This comes after last season’s miserable defeat to bitter rivals Manchester City at Wembley.

This year could easily be a repeat. Pep Guardiola’s side face Chelsea on the other side of the semi – meaning once again it could be an all-Manchester showdown come the final.

But – in Manchester United‘s way before this? Coventry City. The Championship side will not go down without a fight. It should be an enthralling encounter.
