Coventry City vs Manchester United: Live stream, TV channel, kick-off time & where to watch FA Cup semi-final

Coventry City and Manchester United face off in a scintillating FA Cup semi-final tie with the underdogs vying to continue their iconic tale against one of English football's biggest heavyweights.

Coventry City's journey to the FA Cup semi-final has been nothing short of a miracle with the Championship outfit weaving themselves a fairytale in England's oldest football competition. The Sky Blues miraculously turned around the scoreline against Wolves in injury-time scoring two late goals to seal a ticket to Wembley as the underdogs look to continue their fairytale.

Erik ten Hag's Manchester United have been heavily hampered by their massive inconsistencies this term with the side entering the contest on the back of successive draws in the Premier League. The Red Devils did breeze past Liverpool in a seven-goal thriller at Old Trafford but the Dutch manager would be wary of any casual approach against Coventry with the latter possessing all the qualities to cut their FA Cup journey short.

Here GOAL brings you everything you need to know about how to watch, including TV channel, streaming details and more.

Team news & squads

Coventry team news

Japanese winger Tatsuhiro Sakamoto will be sidelined for the clash against Manchester United with the seven-goal man ruled out for the remainder of the campaign.

Jamie Allen will be another absentee for Mark Robins' men with the 28-year-old recovering from a calf strain.

The biggest miss for the Sky Blues would be the absence of Jamaican midfielder Kasey Palmer who is the fulcrum of his side. Palmer was handed a yellow card during Coventry's visit to the Molineux suspending him for the semi-final clash at Wembley.

Matty Godden was an unused substitute in Coventry's clash against Birmingham over the weekend as the English forward returned to the side after missing the previous three games due to a niggle in his calf.

Ellis Simms and Haji Wright will partner up at the tip of the lineup for Robins' side with the former scoring a scintillating brace and the latter thundering in the winner in their side's turnaround against Wolves.

Coventry City predicted XI: Collins; Thomas, Latibeaudiere, Kitching; Eccles, Kelly, Torp, Bidwell, Palmer; Simms, Wright.

Goalkeepers:Wilson, Collins, Moore
Defenders:Van Ewijk, Latibeaudiere, Binks, Thomas, Bidwell, Kitching

Erik ten Hag's side have been plagued with injury this season with the former Ajax manager not really spoilt for choices when choosing a strong eleven to piece together at Wembley.

Luke Shaw (muscle), Tyrell Malacia (knee), Raphael Varane (muscle), Victor Lindelof (thigh), Anthony Martial (groin), and Lisandro Martinez (calf) are all confined to the treatment room.

Jonny Evans' muscle injury is tipped to be assessed closer to kick-off while Harry Maguire is available for selection despite his injury issue in the first-half against Bournemouth in the Premier League.

Scott McTominay would be pushing to feature in Manchester United's engine room alongside English prodigy Kobie Mainoo despite the former missing the encounter against the Cherries.

Brazilian winger Antony will be deployed on the flank alongside his South American teammate Alejandro Garnacho featuring on the opposite wing with Danish forward Rasmus Hojlund spearheading the forward battery.
