In the opening minutes of the game, the first significant opportunity fell to Manchester United when Casemiro found Marcus Rashford with a long pass, but Rashford’s attempt missed the target. United broke the deadlock a few minutes later as Diogo Dalot made a run down the right side and delivered a cross into the box, which was converted by McTominay. Just before halftime, the Red Devils extended their lead as Maguire scored from a header off a corner taken by Bruno Fernandes.

In the second half, United secured a third goal when Fernandes scored with a deflected shot in the 59th minute. Coventry briefly gave themselves hope with a goal from Ellis Simms in the 72nd minute and another from a deflected long-range strike by Callum O’Hare six minutes later. Coventry was awarded a penalty for a handball, which Haji Wright successfully converted to equalize in stoppage time.

As the game appeared destined for extra time, VAR disallowed a late goal by Coventry’s Victor Torp for offside. In the subsequent penalty shoot-out, Manchester United emerged victorious despite Coventry missing two of their spot-kicks.
