FA Cup semi-final preview: Coventry City vs Man Utd

Coventry City may be the outsiders in this competition. But even so, could they be capable of causing a spectacular upset against Erik ten Hag’s Man Utd?

The Sky Blues did win this competition in 1987; that triumphant moment remains Coventry’s only major trophy win.

Coventry manager Mark Robins was famously once a Manchester United player too; it was his goal against Nottingham Forest in the third round of the FA Cup that’s often credited as having saved Sir Alex Ferguson from the sack in 1990, when United were otherwise struggling.

With Ten Hag’s role at the club being questioned after a season of underachievement for United, now Robins may have another say in the Manchester side’s future.

Of course, most would expect United to see off Championship side Coventry on Sunday. But is there any hope that the underdogs can pull off an outrageous win?

Against a United that can often be downright sloppy, Robins’ side may at least get chances. The Red Devils have won just one of their last seven league games, after all…

Unfortunately, Coventry’s own form isn’t exactly stellar; they’ve lost three of their last four league matches.

Still, maybe it’s worth taking a chance on Ellis Simms to find the net for Coventry. The 23-year-old striker has been in tasty form of late, with six goals in his last six games in all competitions.

He’s also been Coventry’s FA Cup hero in the last couple of rounds, scoring twice against Wolves in the quarter-finals; he also scored a hat-trick against Maidstone in the fifth round. Simms is 3/1 to find the net against United.
