Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has had the perfect start to his caretaker manager stint at Old Trafford, leading Manchester United to four wins out of four since taking over from Jose Mourinho. However, a tricky 3rd round FA Cup match is always dangerous fro a big club like Man Utd, and Championship Reading will be looking to spoil Solskjaer's honeymoon with a giant killing in the Saturday lunchtime game.


Although on paper, Manchester United are clear favourites to make it through to the next round, Reading will relish the chance to showcase their talent in the theatre of dreams at Old Trafford, and could well give the Red Devils a serious run for their money.

Should be a thrilling encounter, well worth tuning in for.
