Manchester United reaches FA Cup final after beating Coventry on penalty, to face Man City

Manchester United made hard work of their FA Cup semi-final against Coventry City and needed a penalty shootout to set up a tantalising clash against Manchester City next month.

United took the initiative for the first 60 minutes and worked their way up to a three-goal lead after Scott McTominay, Harry Maguire, and Bruno Fernandes all found the back of the net. Yet there was a twist in the tale as Coventry came from behind to force the match into extra-time.

With 20 minutes to go Ellis Simms scored on the turn to give the Championship club some hope before Callum O’Hare’s deflected strike looped over Andre Onana. A stoppage time penalty was then dispatched by Haji Wright to force an extra 30 minutes. Victor Torp slotted home right at the end of the game but his effort was ruled out for offside and penalties were needed to decide the match.

Bradley Collins saved Casemiro’s first kick but Andre Onana came up with the goods for Man Utd. He kept out O’Hare’s effort then saw Ben Sheaf ping one over the top as Rasmus Hojlund netted the winning penalty.
