Harry Maguire should be fit to start vs Coventry. (Image: Getty) Manchester United meet Championship side Coventry City at Wembley this afternoon, knowing victory would book a ticket into a second successive FA Cup final and offer an opportunity to salvage something from a nightmare season. Express Sport runs through Erik ten Hag’s likely team as United aim to avoid one of the competition’s great shocks.

Ten Hag has also confirmed that Scott McTominay is in line to return to contention after a brief injury spell forced him out of the 2-2 draws against Liverpool and Bournemouth. He should join Sofyan Amrabat, Christian Eriksen and Mason Mount as United’s primary midfield options from the bench.

On the pitch, the trio will likely remain the same. Ten Hag defended Casemiro’s frustrating season in the build-up in a public show of faith in the struggling 32-year-old. He looks set to start alongside Kobbie Mainoo, who will be enjoying his first Wembley appearance for United after earning his first two England caps under the arch in March. Bruno Fernandes will captain the team and look to extend his rich vein of scoring form, finding the net five times in his last five games for club and country.

Alejandro Garnacho has apologised for liking two X (formerly Twitter) posts criticising Ten Hag’s treatment of him after he was taken off at half-time in the Bournemouth draw. The Dutchman has drawn a line over the incident and could hand Garnacho his 31st consecutive start against Coventry.

Marcus Rashford and Rasmus Hojlund are also expected to keep their spots despite ineffective displays on the south coast. The returning Antony will join quarter-final hero Amad Diallo as attacking options from the dugout. United surely won’t require both stars to score in an extra-time comeback like they did against Liverpool today.
