Manchester United will receive Saturday afternoon at home visit from Reading, in a match counting for the third round of the FA Cup, in which I believe that the team coached by Jose Mourinho will not require so easy as it might to seem at first glance considering the fact that the opponent is clearly inferior. Before reading my pick, here are the most important aspects of the protagonists of the game will take place on the arena Old Trafford in Manchester.
Is the current owner of the FA Cup trophy after the final of the previous season was imposed against those from Crystal Palace 2-1 at the end of the extension rounds, thanks to a goal scored by Jesse Lingard decisive in 110 minutes.
Traversing good shape after the first part of the season lacking in many moments of constant and Portuguese coach of “devil” seems finally managed to find one formation optimal, although in this match is likely to appeal to some players less evolved in the championship.
Striker Wayne Rooney is still uncertain due to the nature of muscular problems, just as the band left fullback Luke Shaw, but which could be recovered in time for this match.
The band led by Jaap Stam on the bench in the fight for Premier League promotion at the end of the season and has a good chance to get the best round of the dam.
Begins to turn in the race, which last year was even eliminated finalist Crystal Palace at the end of a failure by 2-0 in the quarterfinals.
The young striker Dominic Samuel has little chance to play in this shift difficult because of muscle problems.
Manchester United has not lost any of the new direct meetings played so far against those of Reading, with six wins, three parties were concluded in a draw.
Tip: over 2,5 goals
