Man Utd v Reading | Match report | Video highlights | FA Cup fourth round | 28 January 2023


After a slow start to the second half, United finally found the elusive breakthrough. Eriksen floated a wonderful pass to Antonio on the right wing, and the Brazilian kept the ball for two seconds before Casemiro scored with his popular run. The Reds no. He collected 18 tackles, shook off a challenge from Mamadou N’Diaye and shot at Lumley to open the scoring.

Moments later, the first goalscorer bagged his second of the game. Fernandes on the left picked up substitute Fredo outside the box and a first-time pass found Casemiro, who immediately hit the ball and a shot into the back of the net sailed past Lumley to make it 2-0. The Real Madrid man now has four goals for United since signing in the summer.

Nor was it the last time Casemiro was involved in the struggle. Andy Carroll, who was already on a yellow card, threw a double at the Brazilian tackle. The referee immediately arrived at the red card and ordered the former Liverpool and Newcastle United striker on his way.

Not long after, United broke off an attack against a corner in the corner. Bruno immediately caught the ball, beat the ball into the ground and Fred, with a flick of the toy, beat Lumley at his nearest post and put the game to bed.

Read did carry a consolation goal with 18 minutes to play. Tom Ince sent a powerful corner to substitute Amadou Salif Mbengue, who had already come on moments earlier, and his header gave his side a boost as the game wrapped up.
