Coventry eye giant-killing against Manchester united at Wembley



A spot in the final is essential to keep this campaign from turning into a disaster because the Red Devils’ chances of qualifying for Europe in the Premier League are dimming.

Erik ten Hag’s team is the clear favorite because of their opponent’s Championship status and their intense desire to go to the championship match.

But, Mark Robins’ team has already defeated Wolves to get here, so they are confident in their ability to battle hard.

It will be a special clash for Coventry manager Robins who used to play for Man United and even won an FA Cup with them.

In 1990, he scored the only goal of the game against Nottingham Forest as he kept United in the competition which they eventually went on to win.

That goal is also said to have saved Sir Alex Ferguson’s job at the time, with a defeat reported to have spelt the end for the iconic boss.

Robins played a total of 61 times for the Red Devils at the start of his career before he moved on to Norwich City and a myriad of other clubs.

Now, the 54-year-old has the opportunity to completely destroy Coventry and put an end to their chances of winning any hardware this season.
34 years ago, he might have saved Sir Alex’s job, but now he has the power to bring Ten Hag’s tenure at United to an end.

Jamie Allen and Tatsuhiro Sakamoto will be absent for Coventry in the semi-final.
Ellis Simms and Haji Wright, the former of whom has already scored five goals in the FA Cup, are anticipated to be the Sky Blues’ biggest threats.
Regarding Man United, Antony might make a comeback after being absent from last weekend’s draw with Bournemouth.
Although Scott McTominay is also on the verge of a return, the Red Devils still have a lengthy injury list.
Anthony Martial, Tyrell Malacia, Raphael Varane, Luke Shaw, Lisandro Martinez, and Victor Lindelof are all out.

Manager of Coventry Robins was ecstatic to see Man United in the semi-finals.
“It’s definitely special to draw United,” Robins remarked.”But to draw any one of those teams would have been special.”Being in the cup at this point with the best clubs is a feat in and of itself, if you look at the remaining teams.When I was a child, I passed by there at United. However, I now undoubtedly support Coventry City.”It takes place at Wembley. This is a wonderful moment. We need to devise a strategy that will allow us to participate in the game and track its progress.”

This Sunday, April 21, is when the FA Cup semi-final will happen.

At Wembley Stadium, kickoff is set at 3:30 p.m.
