It’s all going according to plan at Old Trafford as Manchester United lead Reading 2-0 at halftime in the third round of the FA Cup.
Juan Mata opened the scoring on 22 minutes when he dispatched a penalty after being brought down in the box by Reading fullback Omar Richards.
On the stroke of halftime, United struck again when Reading sloppily conceded possession in the middle of the pitch.
United broke and Alexis Sanchez played a superb through ball to Romelu Lukaku who beat the offside trap. The United striker was left one on one with the goalkeeper and he was coolness personified as he rounded Anssi Jaakkola to dispatch the ball into the net.
