Coventry is currently in eighth place in the Championship with their chances of reaching the playoffs being close to none. They trail Norwich City by eight points with just four games left to play. However the FA Cup present them with a chance to make history: the last time a team outside the top flight of English football lifted the trophy was in 1980 when West Ham beat Arsenal by 1-0.

Manchester United’s 2023/24 season has been one to forget. Starting with a disappointing last place in their Champions League group that meant also missing out on the chance to play in the Europa League this spring. The same inconsistency of previous seasons sees them currently seventh in the Premier League and with almost no chance of getting into the UCL for next season. All signs of a clear step down from last year.

The only chance for the team to finish on a high would be winning the FA Cup. Silverware could also be extra special if they can get revenge against their Manchester rivals for last season’s final. A painful loss that meant the treble for Pep Guardiola’s side, a feat United also accomplished in 1998/99.

Coventry vs Manchester United Prediction

Manchester United to advance at 1.22

Manchester United may be far from their best at the moment with four consecutive games without a win, but the difference in fitness and quality from the Premier League to the Championship is still quite big.

The Red Devils’ last FA Cup game was an epic turnaround against Liverpool scoring two goals in the final minutes of extra time. They will not let that game go to nothing by getting knocked out just one step away from the final.

Coventry vs Manchester United Tips

Over 2.5 Goals at 1.47

When looking at both team’s last games a lot of goals seem a guarantee. Coventry’s last eight consecutive games have had more than 2.5 goals, a stat heavily influenced by their defensive weakness. They have gone seven games on the bounce without a clean sheet.

Manchester United also struggles to keep their rivals from scoring, but they have found the back of the net a lot, scoring 14 times in their last six games.
