Manchester United vs. Reading: Match Preview

Man Utd are huge favourites for this match, even if they will be fielding a second string team against Reading. The Royals have struggled this season in the Championship. Second from bottom and with only 20 points after 26 matches it looks like they are heading down to League 1.

Their new manager has not brought any beginners luck to his new team losing 1-0 to Millwall, drawing 0-0 with QPR and losing 1-4 to Swansea. Reading have scored 2 goals in their last 6 games. This couldn't be a worse time for them to meet a goalscoring happy-go-lucky United.

Reading have scored 2 goals in their last 6 games.

Man Utd have scored 14 goals in the past four matches since Mourinho left. They have only conceded three.
