Another great win for Manchester United and their manager, Ole Gunner Solskjaer, where he reached his fifth win in a row with the Red Devils in the Premier League, and FA Cup.
Manchester United had nie changes int he starting XI compared to the one against Newcastle United. This made their performance less attractive and not as good as the previous matches. However, Reading, before the last team in the Championship, had a great match as well.
Manchester United scored two goals by Juan Mata, through a penalty, and by Romelu Lukaku, with a world-class assist from Alexis Sanchez, who left injured in the second half.
