Expected Man Utd line-up (4-3-3) vs Coventry City, surprise in defence

Manchester United take on Coventry City in today’s FA Cup semi-final at the Wembley Stadium.

The Red Devils have been poor since the international break with four winless games, but they should be favourites to beat the Championship outfit.

Ahead of the clash, manager Erik ten Hag could be forced to make at least one change. Willy Kambwala is injured alongside Mason Mount and Sofyan Amrabat.

Formation: 4-3-3

Predicted Line-up:

Andre Onana has been almost an undisputed starter in goal for United this season. The Cameroon international has improved his shot-stopping over the past few months and is expected to start ahead of Altay Bayindir.

Diogo Dalot and Aaron Wan-Bissaka are likely to keep their places at right and left-back respectively. Harry Maguire has recovered from a thigh injury for the game, but United have suffered another setback with Kambwala absent.

Ten Hag could go with the experience of Casemiro alongside Maguire. This would mean Kobbie Mainoo dropping into the holding midfield position where he was brilliant earlier this year.

Scott McTominay could be introduced in central midfield alongside Bruno Fernandes after overcoming a knee problem. The €32 million-rated star could play a more advanced role than the Red Devils captain.

Further forward, it could be the same attacking trio from the Bournemouth draw. Antony has looked in good form lately, producing impressive displays against Liverpool and Chelsea.

An injury kept him out of the Bournemouth trip last weekend. He may have to settle for a bench role. Marcus Rashford and Alejandro Garnacho should continue on the right and left wing respectively.

Rasmus Hojlund has not scored since returning from a muscle injury, but the Dane remains United’s best striking option. Anthony Martial has yet to recover from groin surgery in January.
