The Royals were defeated in Manchester by a strong Red Devils outfit in the third round of the Emirates FA Cup at Old Trafford.

An early goal for Wayne Rooney saw the United striker steer the ball into the Reading net with his knee, before Anthony Martial doubled the host's lead on 15 minutes.

The Royals came out on the front foot in the second half and made a number of chances, but it was United who managed to wrap up the result on the 75th minute when Marcus Rashford slotted home to make it three. Rashford then captilasied on a mistake from Ali Al-Habsi to put the Red Devils 4-0 up and secure them a place in the next round of the FA Cup.
