Manchester United have included four rookies in their squad for Sunday’s FA Cup semi-final against Coventry.

Erik ten Hag has been hit with three new injuries this week, with Sofyan Amrabat, Mason Mount and Willy Kambwala out of the game at Wembley.

That’s left the Dutchman’s squad depleted, with Luke Shaw, Victor Lindelof, Jonny Evans, Raphael Varane, Lisandro Martinez and Tyrell Malacia already absent in defence.

Harry Maguire has trained just once this week and will undergo a late fitness test to prove his fitness for Wembley.

But with options in short supply, Ten Hag has been forced to call upon the club’s academy to make up the numbers.

Louis Jackson, 18, has been included in today’s squad and the centre-back could be handed his debut in north-west London.

Harry Amass, a left-back, has thrived in the club’s academy since joining from Watford but he’s yet to make his debut.

Habeeb Ogunneye, is yet to play for the club, but the right-back is needed as cover with Malacia and Shaw out.

Ethan Wheatley, a striker, is another yet to make his debut but with Anthony Martial out he is providing cover for Rasmus Hojlund.
