Despite being favorites, Manchester United cannot afford to underestimate Coventry, especially after their upset victory over Wolverhampton in the quarterfinals.

Arsenal seeks redemption following their Champions League exit as they take on Wolves, with a chance to climb back to the top of the Premier League table. Liverpool, reeling from recent defeats, faces Fulham in a crucial fixture to salvage their season, while West Ham aims to regroup after their European exit against Crystal Palace.

Aston Villa looks to solidify their fourth-place position with a win against in-form Bournemouth, while Luton’s survival hopes hinge on securing three points against Brentford. The battle at the bottom intensifies as Burnley seeks a vital victory against Sheffield United in their bid to avoid relegation.
