Our predicted MUFC XI for a huge FA Cup semi-final vs Coventry is now in…

Well, here we go then. Manchester United’s biggest game of the season so far is upon us; an FA Cup semi-final against Coventry.

This represents Erik ten Hag’s last chance at lining the trophy cabinet in his second season, while he may well need to lift the cup in order to keep his job.

Without thinking too far ahead to a potential final, United have a job to do here. League One opponents Coventry cannot be underestimated. They 100% deserve to be in this semi-final and you can bet they’re going to make a real game of it here.

With that in mind, it’d be naive to name a weakened team. Ten Hag will know this better than anyone, with the Dutch gaffer almost certainly set to name his strongest possible XI given the players available.

Anyway, let’s give you the full run down.

Check out our predicted MUFC XI vs Coventry in full here:

Andre Onana will start in between the sticks as per usual, with the man from Cameroon in excellent form of late.

Aaron Wan-Bissaka will start in the right-back slot, shifting Diogo Dalot back to the left-hand side of defence. Harry Maguire has been passed fit enough to start here. He’s the only senior centre-half available, meaning Willy Kambwala will get a run out at Wembley.

Kobbie Mainoo is in the form of his life and is now one of the first names on the team sheet. I’ve gone for Casemiro’s experience in midfield over Mason Mount. Though ana argument can be made for the latter to start. Bruno Fernandes completes the midfield trio.

Rasmus Hojlund could look to use this game as an excellent opportunity to rediscover his form. To his right and left respectively will be Alejandro Garnacho and Marcus Rashford.

Come on you Reds!
