Bruno Fernandes explained after the FA Cup why he already knows so much about Coventry City following Manchester United’s win against Liverpool.

Manchester United thrilled the footballing world on Sunday afternoon after they fought back twice to defeat Liverpool 4-3 in the FA Cup quarter-final at Old Trafford.

Goals from Scott McTominay, Antony, Marcus Rashford, and finally, Amad Diallo saw Erik ten Hag‘s side put themselves into the pot for the semi-final, where they will face Coventry City at Wembley Stadium.

Reacting to the draw result, club captain Bruno Fernandes has explained how he already knows a lot about Coventry.

“It is a tough game,” Fernandes told MUTV following the win against Liverpool.

“I see some of their games because my chef at home is a Sunderland fan, so I get to see some Championship games sometimes with him at home.

“So, for some spells, they have good players on the ball. They are really difficult to play against physically. We saw it against Wolves.

“They won the game in three minutes I think, 97 and 90 plus 10, something like that. So we know what to expect and we can’t be getting there and be surprised for what they’re going to bring to us.

“We have to do the same as we did today on running, on tracking back or fighting spirit and everything, and then put the quality we have put on in the 30 minutes today for longer spells in the game.”

The semi-final is set to take place on either Saturday, 20 or Sunday, 21 April at Wembley Stadium. United will act as the “away” team as they were drawn out of the hat second.
