Coventry vs Manchester United Tips


Coventry arrive for what they hope will be a date with destiny on the back of a stunning 3-2 win over Wolves in the last round.

Manchester United needed extra-time to outlast Liverpool in the last round as they ran out 4-3 winners in a pulsating game. 

  • Coventry have seen over 2.5 goals scored in their last three FA Cup games 
  • Coventry have lost six of their last seven against United (W1)
  • Manchester United have seen over 2.5 goals in two of their last three FA Cup matches 

Head To Head


Manchester United have won eight of their last 10 against Coventry, with their opponents winning twice. 

Coventry Form 


Coventry arrive for this one hoping to secure the result of the competition so far, with the side a single win away from taking their place alongside Manchester City or Chelsea in the FA Cup final. 

Their exploits in the last round saw them stun Wolves in a 3-2 win that saw the side net in the 97th and 100th minutes to knock their Premier League opponents out and make it three straight wins in a row in the cup. 

While Coventry were excellent against Wolves, the Wanderers have hardly been consistent this season. Meanwhile, Coventry have only played one Premier League quality opposition in Wolves, and the occasion may get to them in this one. While Manchester United have not been perfect this year, there is still a massive gulf in class between the pair. 

Manchester United Form 


Manchester United's only shot at a trophy is on the line this weekend as they face a potential banana skin at Wembley. 

Wins against Wigan (2-0), Newport (4-2), Nottingham Forest (1-0) and Liverpool (4-3) have taken United to this point, but their inconsistencies across the season means they are hardly unbeatable. 

While I do expect this one to see goals as Coventry know they will likely have to outscore Manchester United rather than keeping a clean sheet, I believe that United will take their place in the FA Cup final by eliminating Coventry. 

Verdict

I am backing over 2.5 goals in this one as United avoid what would be a humiliating loss to Coventry.
