Manchester United are aiming to remain in all four competitions they are competing in this year when they play hosts to Reading at Old Trafford in the FA Cup just a few days on from smashing Nottingham Forest in the EFL Cup.
By this point in the season, despite it being Erik ten Hag’s first with United, it would be quite disastrous if they weren’t to get their hands on some silverware. His side eased past Forest on Wednesday, as Marcus Rashford scored another stunning solo goal, before Wout Weghorst bagged his first for the club.
Bruno Fernandes sealed the deal for the Red Devils that day and put one foot on the Wembley turf as a result in the League Cup. In the FA Cup, United also beat Everton thanks to another Rashford goal, an Antony strike, and an own goal too.
United are down in fourth once more, however, as they lost 3-2 to Arsenal last time out in a game where they actually played well and could well have got more out of the match.
As for Reading, they remain down in 14th in the Championship after a 4-0 demolition from Stoke City last Saturday. The Royals are far from favourites here now, and it could be a long night for them.
