Coventry will aim to upset one of the FA Cup’s favourites

Coventry, with just one appearance in the FA Cup final to their name, clinching victory in 1987, now are back at Wembley for the first time since their defeat in the play-off final against Luton last season. They reached the semi-finals of this competition after beating Wolves in the quarter-finals, the match ended up being a 5-goal thriller, and Coventry scored what was the last kick of the match.

As they prepare to take on Coventry at Wembley this Sunday, Manchester United are eager to secure their spot in the FA Cup final and sidestep any potential upsets. Last season, Erik ten Hag’s team made it to the final but suffered defeat against Manchester City. There’s a possibility of a rematch this year, as the current holders, Manchester City, square off against Chelsea in the other semi-final match this weekend.
