In order to further expand the winning streak, the Manchester United squad is waiting for Reading to play in Old Trafford for the third round of the FA Cup.
Good moment that come across those led by the Portuguese Jose Mourinho, the cast of Manchester United comes from winning by 0-2 in his visit to West Ham United and in this way ample the winning streak to seven consecutive and a streak of undefeated Of thirteen games, adding all the competitions, which allows the red devils to follow closely to Arsenal and Manchester City in that fight to classify to UEFA tournament.
For this game it is said that Mourinho will give rest to some players, but for the level that has shown the team lately we do not believe that this diminishes.
Jaap Stam’s runners-up are also in for a big moment, with the Royals coming off a 2-3 win in their visit to Bristol City to claim their third consecutive victory, which allows them to remain steady in third place English Championship, currently in the playoff zone for the promotion, which is the goal of Reading and wants to maintain that good pace now in the FA Cup.
Now, it goes without saying that no matter how much Manchester United make variants in its starting eleven, it is a team that has a better squad than Reading, and this has been reflected in the results in direct confrontations, where the red devils just Have lost a game in their previous 18 games. Most of these games have been for the FA Cup, as they have played 12 times in the competition, where United has won 11 of their 18 games against Reading and tied for 7, being the last time they faced in 2013, with marker 2-1 to United; While for Premier that same year they also won 1-0 and we do not believe that this will change this Saturday and more with the good numbers that has before inferior teams, where Manchester United is undefeated in its last 24 games, with 20 victories and 4 Ties
Of course, due to the variants, the issue of not being put much intensity by the game of games, we are encouraged by the simple victory, where although the quota is low, it is good to include it in combined quota and increase the value Of the same.
Manchester United: Romero; Valencia, Smalling, Blind, Shaw; Herrera, Fellaini; Mata, Pogba, Rashford; Ibrahimovic.
Reading: Habsi; Gunter, McShane, Moore, Blackett; Williams, Evans; McCleary, Swift, Beerens; Kermorgant.
