The Top Two Tips for Man Utd vs Reading

Manchester United are the big favourite to progress into the next round of the FA Cup this weekend after being drawn at home against mid-table Championship side Reading. History favours the Red Devils and so does the recent form of both teams but this is the FA Cup and Reading will believe that they can cause a huge upset on Saturday night.

Man Utd to Win-to-Nil

We're going with the bookmakers and backing Man Utd to win on Saturday, but we also fancy the hosts to keep a clean sheet in the process. United have won each of their last six games against Reading, keeping clean sheets in four of those encounters. The hosts have also won four of their last six matches in all competitions, keeping clean sheets in their last two cup ties against Notting Forest and Charlton. Reading have lost two of their last four matches in league and cup, failing to score in each of those defeats.

Over 3.5 Goals

We're predicting at least four goals to be scored on Saturday as we expect Man Utd to win the game with relative ease. Over 2.5 Goals have been scored in each of Reading's last two outings, the most recent of which ended in a 4-0 defeat away at Stoke. Man Utd might not have scored four goals in a game since their League Cup clash with Aston Villa but ten Hag's men have been excellent in front of goal of late scoring three times against Everton, Charlton and Nottingham Forest and we expect the hosts to score at least four times this weekend.

How will the teams lineups for this FA Cup clash?

Man Utd

United were at home in the 3rd Round of the FA Cup where they took on fellow Premier League side Everton. The Toffees gave a good account of themselves during the 90-minutes but ended up losing the game 3-1. Antony opened the scoring early on but Coady equalised for the visitors in the 14th-minute. An own goal by Coady put Man Utd back in front in the 52nd-minute and deep into stoppage time, Rashford converted a spot-kick to make it 3-1.

Manchester United boss Erik ten Hag is without several key players coming into the game. Jadon Sancho is unavailable for the game along with Luke Shaw, who is suffering with an illness. Antony  and Anthony Martial are missing from action because of injuries. Donny van de Beek continues to remain on the sidelines because of a knee injury along with Axel Tuanzebe.

Predicted Lineup: de Gea (GK), Lindelöf, Malacia, Wan-Bissaka, Martínez, Eriksen, Casemiro, Fernandes, Weghorst, Rashford & Antony

Reading

Reading went up against Watford in the last round and used their home advantage well to secure a comfortable 2-0 victory. Abrefa fired Reading in front in first-half stoppage-time after good work from Hutchinson and in stoppage-time at the very end of the game, veteran forward Shane Long scored to confirm the result.

Reading might struggle to get Andy Carroll in the lineup striker picking up an ankle injury in the recent stalemate with Reading. Sam Hutchinson’s long-term injury problem continues while the Royals might also be without Liam Moore for the upcoming match. Long and Abrefa have been key source of goals in the previous rounds and they are likely to start in the upcoming match.

Predicted Lineup: Lumley (GK), Yiadom, Baba, Mcintyre, Holmes, Ince, Hendrick, Loum, Fornah, Hoilett & Meïté
