Coventry are still on the edge of the Premier League promotion playoff spots ahead of their huge trip to Wembley. However, head coach Mark Robins will go with the strongest team available, 

USMNT attacker Haji Wright is a crucial name on the Coventry team sheet with the 26-year-old already netting 17 club goals so far this season.

Coventry (4-3-3 right to left): Collins (GK) —  Latibeaudiere, Kitching, Thomas, Bidwell — Eccles, Sheaf, O’Hare — Van Ewijk, Simms, Wright.

Man United vs Coventry prediction

Manchester United have to win this game to avoid their season simply drifting to a conclusion in the final weeks of the campaign. The FA Cup has seen the best of Ten Hag’s team in 2024, and despite the possibility for a Coventry shock, United should have enough to reach another final.

Prediction: Man United 2-0 Coventry
