CONFIRMED: Carrick, Fellaini, Mata and Rashford start against Reading

Manchester United face Jaap Stam’s Reading in the third round of the Emirates FA Cup at Old Trafford this afternoon, United’s first match in trying to retain the trophy they won in May under the guidance of Louis van Gaal. Jose Mourinho will be up for putting his side into the draw for the fourth round, adding another match to January’s already fixture packed month. United have been in good form recently, continuing a 13 match unbeaten run, winning the last seven matches, six of those in the Premier League. United are a team that is gaining momentum, something which needs to continue ahead of the visit of Hull City in the EFL Cup on Tuesday and Liverpool in the Premier League a week on Sunday. United have a great chance to gain something this season over the next three matches, moving forward and getting their momentum into full swing, which is important to show their rivals that they are not going to give up this season, which is what they have done over the past three seasons.

Manchester United:


Young, Smalling, Rojo, Blind;

Carrick, Fellaini;

Mata, Rooney, Martial;



J. Pereira; Jones, Fosu-Mensah; Pogba, Mkhitaryan, Schweinsteiger; Ibrahimovic



Gunter, Evans, Moore, Blackett;

Van Den Berg, Williams;

Beerens, Kelly, McCleary;



S. Moore; Cooper, Watson; Swift, Obita, Meite; Samuel
