Three things we learned as flimsy United survive huge scare vs. Coventry to sail through to FA Cup final

Amidst a very poor and underwhelming campaign, the FA Cup represents United’s last chance of clinching some silverware and somewhat salvaging the campaign.

Erik ten Hag made just one change from the team that managed the 2-2 draw against Bournemouth last weekend, with Scott McTominay coming into the team for the injured Willy Kambwala.

Andre Onana was named in goal with a defensive four of Diogo Dalot, Casemiro, Harry Maguire and Aaron Wan-Bissaka ahead of him.

Kobbie Mainoo, McTominay and Bruno Fernandes formed the midfield trio. Rasmus Hojlund led the line with Marcus Rashford and Alejandro Garnacho flanking him on either side. Here are three things we learned as Manchester United beat Coventry on penalties to advance to FA Cup final.

Dominant first-half performance from United

United were easily the better side in the opening 45 minutes and got their reward by heading into the break 2-0 up courtesy of goals from McTominay and Maguire.

For United’s opener, McTominay made a darting run towards the Coventry goal to easily tap in a sublime low cross from Dalot.
