WEMBLEY hosts the second FA Cup semi-final today and Manchester United are out to avoid a nasty surprise when they take on Championship shock troops Coventry City.

An FA Cup goal from Mark Robins in season 1989/90 is credited with saving Sir Alex Ferguson's job and sparking an unprecedented era of domestic dominance from the Red Devils.

Now Robins is in the dugout at Coventry City looking to mastermind the victory that would surely signal the end for Erik Ten Hag's rollercoaster Old Trafford reign.

Even if ten Hag leads his club to FA Cup glory this season it might still not be enough to save his skin but he will want to avoid the ignominy of crashing out to a lower-league club in what would be one of the great semi-final shocks.

Coventry City v Manchester United: Top Betting Tips

Coventry City scored three times in the quarter-final as they shocked Premier League side Wolves at Molineux and have netted in nine of their last 10 games. That's why the bookies price BTTS at just 8/13 (BetMGM) and even adding over 2.5 goals to that bet only increases the odds to 17/20 (Coral).

The biggest problem for Robins is keeping Manchester United out as the Sky Blues have conceded in their last seven and lost 3-0 at struggling Birmingham City last time out.

Over 2.5 goals for the Red Devils pays 11/8 at Bet365 while Manchester United striker Rasmus Hojlund is 7/5 (William Hill) for anytime scorer as he bids to end a seven-game drought.

The big occasion could see a few Coventry City players dive into tackles and Joe Latideaudiere is 21/10 at Bet365 for a card after picking up yellows in his last two outings.

Rangers v Hearts: Top Betting Tips

There's semi-final action in the Scottish Cup as well and Heart of Midlothian will be out to cap a miserable week for Rangers by beating them at Hampden.

Philippe Clement's side have lost to Ross County and drawn at Dundee in the last week to damage their Premiership title hopes. But Hearts are still 11/2 at SkyBet to go through as they have never beaten the Light Blues at Hampden and lost 5-0 at Ibrox in the last meeting.

It should be a close one and I like the 21/10 on offer at McBookie for either side to win by a one-goal margin. Cards are another good option with so much at stake and Bet365 are offering evens on both teams having two or more players in the book.

Fulham v Liverpool: Top Betting Tips

Liverpool's week has been even worse than Rangers' with Jurgen Klopp's men losing at home to Crystal Palace before exiting the Europa League to Atalanta.

They will probably need to sign off with six successive wins to get their hands on the Premier League trophy in Klopp's final season but Fulham will be dangerous opponents.

BTTS has landed in all three meetings this season and the Premier League match at Anfield saw Liverpool edge a 4-3 thriller. That suggests more thrills today and over 3.5 strikes pays 7/5 at Unibet while over 1.5 first-half goals is 5/4 at Paddy Power.

Aston Villa v AFC Bournemouth: Top Betting Tips

Aston Villa were the only English side to go through in Europe this week and even that was a close call as they needed penalties to get past French side Lille in the Europa Conference League.

Unai Emery's side resume their bid for a Champions League place today but could be a bit vulnerable when AFC Bournemouth come calling. The Cherries have some dangerous players and look good value at evens in the double chance with StarSports.

Rest Of The Premier League Action: Top Betting Tips

Crystal Palace won at Anfield last time out and will fancy their chances at home to a West Ham United side who had a demoralising Europa League defeat on Thursday. Jean-Philippe Mateta will lead the line for the Eagles and is 13/10 at Betfair to either score or assist.

There's a relegation six-pointer at Goodison Park as Everton host Nottingham Forest. After watching Sean Dyche's side lose 6-0 at Chelsea, I fancy Forest for this one at 27/10 with Betfair.

Real Madrid v Barcelona: Top Betting Tips

A big weekend of football finishes in style as Real Madrid host Barcelona in El Clasico, knowing a win will effectively wrap up the La Liga table. Barca need to go for it so it bodes well for a cracker and over 3.5 goals pays 11/8 at Bet365.

    Rangers vs Hearts

    Balogun to be carded @ 6/1 (bet365)

    Has played the equivalent of two games since the end of December, doesn’t avoid a tackle and if it’s a feisty game he won’t be far away from the action . Has a bit of pace and takes gambles with it, often in a foot race tracking back. I question whether he will see out the 90 minutes but at 6/1 it’s worth a small stake. I’m off to watch the game from behind the couch!

    Good luck 🤞
