CONFIRMED: Manchester United squad vs Coventry City in FA Cup semi-final



| Last Updated:


Manchester United’s squad for their FA Cup semi-final clash against Coventry City has been confirmed.

The Reds travel to Wembley on Sunday afternoon for their Sunday afternoon clash against the Championship club. They could play either Chelsea or Manchester City in the FA Cup final.

Erik ten Hag has been dealt many injury blows across the season but the manager is fortunate to see Harry Maguire, Antony and Scott McTominay back in the squad.

In defence, Maguire is joined by academy centre-back Louis Jackson, who has been starring for the Under-18s for most of the season.

Willy Kambwala was one of three first-team starters not spotted by MEN’s photographers as they boarded their train to London, with Mason Mount and Soyfyan Amrabat being the other two.

This does not necessarily mean that they are out of the squad, but it is an interesting development in an injury-ridden season.

The report added that Sir Dave Brailsford and deputy football director Andy O’Boyle travelled with the squad on Saturday afternoon.

Ethan Wheatley also joins the team for the Wembley trip after making his first appearance in a matchday squad last weekend against Bournemouth.

He joins Alejandro Garnacho, Antony, Marcus Rashford, Omari Forson, Rasmus Højlund and Amad Diallo as one of the attacking options in the squad.

Habeeb Ogunneye and Harry Amass continue in the squad after their recent inclusions. Diogo Dalot and Aaron Wan-Bissaka are expected to start.

Kobbie Mainoo will likely start in the first game since his 19th birthday.

The full squad, as MEN reported, can be read below.
