MOTM: Bruno Fernandes.

Manchester United have become the first team to progress through an FA Cup semi-final via penalties in back-to-back seasons, having also eliminated Brighton and Hove Albion at this stage last season.

In the quarter-finals, Coventry scored twice in stoppage time to come from behind to beat Wolves. In the semi-finals, they came back from 3-0 down to make it 3-3 against Man Utd and take it to a penalty shootout.

Three players have now scored 10+ goals for Manchester United across all competitions this season:

  • 13 – Rasmus Højlund
  • 12 – Bruno Fernandes
  • 10 – Scott McTominay

Bruno Fernandes created NINE chances against Coventry, three times the amount any other player on the pitch managed.

Manchester United spend £198,710,000 on wages annually, TWENTY times more than Championship side Coventry City spend in a calendar year (£9,900,000).

Excluding penalties, only Rasmus Højlund (13) has scored more goals for Manchester United this season than Scott McTominay (10).

Since joining Manchester United, Bruno Fernandes has scored or assisted 140 goals (77 goals & 63 assists), more than any other midfielder in Europe’s Top 5 Leagues.

Manchester United have now conceded 358 shots across all domestic competitions in 2024, at least 36 more than any other side. While only two other sides have conceded more shots on target.

Bruno Fernandes has scored and assisted in 17 matches for Manchester United – since his debut for the club in February 2020, the only Premier League player to do so in more different games in all competitions is Mohamed Salah (20).

Each of the last 15 FA Cup semi-finals between a Premier League club and lower league opponent have seen the top-flight club progress to the final; five of the previous six teams to do so have gone on to lift the trophy.

Manchester United have now conceded 3+ goals in 14 different matches across all competitions this season:

  • vs. Bayern
