The Sky Blues saw off local rivals Wolves in the previous round, whilst Man Utd were involved in that dramatic quarter-final against Liverpool. However, neither are having great league seasons, making this game all the more important.

The Championship side’s FA Cup journey has been helped by striker Ellis Simms scoring five times in the competition so far. He will be going up against an understrength defence. Raphael Varane, Victor Lindelof, Jonny Evans and Lisandro Martinez are all unavailable to Erik ten Hag due to injury. Harry Maguire was a doubt but is fit to start. The Red Devils boss is under immense pressure and will not want to lose this semi-final to lower-league opposition.

Both clubs know what it means to lift this trophy. The Sky Blues defeated Spurs in 1987, while their opponents have won it 12 times. Who is going to return to Wembley to face Man City on May 25?

Here's how they line up:

Coventry: Collins, Latibeaudiere, Thomas, Kitching, Bidwell, Eccles, Sheaf, O’Hare, Van Ewijk, Simms, Wright

Man Utd: Onana, Dalot, Maguire, Casemiro, Wan-Bissaka, McTominay, Mainoo, Garnacho, Fernandes, Rashford, Hojlund
