Coventry City v Manchester United is ITV's live FA Cup semi-final pick

Coventry City against Manchester United has been confirmed to feature in ITV1's live coverage of the 2023/24 Emirates FA Cup Semi Finals.

The Championship side, who beat Wolves in the Quarter Finals, will take on the 12-time winners at Wembley at 3.30pm on Sunday April 21, hoping to set up a final against Manchester City or Chelsea, who play on the Saturday.

Coventry famously won the Cup under John Sillett and George Curtis in 1987, with an extra-time own goal by Gary Mabbutt sealing a shock victory over favourites Spurs.

This time, they've also beaten Maidstone United, Sheffield Wednesday and Oxford United on the road to Wembley, while Man Utd have overcome Liverpool, Nottingham Forest, Newport County and Wigan.

United's 4-3 victory over Liverpool in the Quarter-Final attracted the biggest television audience of the year, with a peak of 8.6 million tuning in as the game went into extra-time.  

The match will play out live on ITV1 and ITVX, UTV, STV and STV Player, with transmission details to be confirmed nearer the time.
