    Reading are in good form here having won the last three games coming into it. 3rd int eh Championship too so they won't be a pushover.

    Expect United to do a bit of squad rotation.

    Mourinho doesn't usually do mish-mash but it would be nice to see Schweinsteiger Captain a young side hopefully featuring at least Tuanzebe, Goss and the lesser-spotted Fosu-Mensah.

    Probably too much to expect Martial and Rashford to start up front together, but i'd deffo rest Zlatan for this and the Hull(minus Mike Phelan) match midweek and have him fresh for the self-pity mob.

    Be nice to see Jaap again and for him hope we don't batter his team but rather that than a replay.

    3-1

    Dunno if I'd go for a full change. They're no mugs either.

    2/3rds of all of United's game v Reading have been in the FA Cup (13/19). Of them, United have won 7, drawn 5 & lost once in 1927 at Villa Park, which was the only second replay these teams have played. It is the only competitive match United have lost to Reading.

    Last time we played them in the FAC was 2013, which we won 2-1 at OT.

    Remember the 3-4 we only just won against them?

    That game was something special, the defending was something special needs though, GREAT excitement!

    I wish we wouldn't be so defensive.

    Should've been 3. Just not quite clicking for Rashford so far this season, but it'll come.

    Could have been 4, 5 nil up here with some better finishing.

    inability to finish off chances is hurting our season so far

    This is exactly what we needed after the Xmas/NY fixtures.

    A comfy home win where we can rest most of our first teamers.

    I hope he takes Carrick off at HT for Basti.

    Would like to see Fosu Mensah get minutes too.

    7 or 8 I reckon. We've missed load of chances.

    We're too defensive, or something.

    I'd bring the Pig Mounter on here for the last half hour.

    How the fuck were they allowed to take the freekick from there? Foul in the box and he lets them take it ten yards outside the box, and break forward.

    I'm going to have a moan - the amount of chances we've missed this game and over the season in general is pathetic. We should really have gone in at HT at 3-0.

    Our finishing or composure or whatever needs to be worked on in training more.
