Manchester United breezed in to the fourth round of the FA Cup with a 4-0 thrashing of Jaap Stam’s Reading at Old Trafford this afternoon.

United started brightly and opened the scoring in the seventh minute when Wayne Rooney poked home from 8 yards following good work from Anthony Martial down the left side. The goal meant that Rooney has now equalled Sir Bobby Charlton’s all-time goal-scorer record of 249 goals for the club.

The Reds Devils doubled their advantage less than 10 minutes later as Martial curled in to the bottom far corner to give the hosts a comfortable 2-0 lead at half time.

United then sealed the victory when Marcus Rashford beat the offside trap and raced clear to make it 3-0 in the 75th minute before the youngster wrapped things up after pouncing on a howler from Reading goalkeeper Ali Al Habsi to tap home for 4-0.

The win sees United extend their winning streak to eight games in all competitions and books their place in the draw for the fourth round of the FA Cup,
