Manchester United will look to avoid an upset when they take on Reading in the third round of the FA Cup at Old Trafford this lunchtime. 

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has made wholesale changes to his starting eleven with Sergio Romero coming in for David De Gea in goal while Phil Jones, Matteo Darmian, Ashley Young and Diogo Dalot line-up in defence with a host of names rested.

Paul Pogba has been ruled out with a minor knock while Nemanja Matic and Ander Herrera are rested so Fred, Scott McTominay and Andreas Pereria are recalled in midfield.
