United away in the FA Cup… players and fans react!

5 December 2016

Social media round-up of the FA Cup draw

We’ve got a rich recent history in the FA Cup – with a quarter-final and semi-final in each of the last two years!

But Manchester United have lifted the title 12 times – only matched by Arsenal, who also have their name inscribed a dozen times.

So little wonder that our players were pleased to get paired against one of the teams most synonymous with this competition… and the reigning champions!

Here’s what our players and staff had to say for themselves on Twitter as the news came through…

What a draw that is!! Man U @ Old Trafford 🙌🏽🙌🏽💙 @ReadingFC
