In Summary

  • Manchester United beat Reading 3-1 to advance to the round of the FA Cup 

Manchester United's Brazil midfielder Casemiro scored twice as they beat second-tier Reading 3-1 to reach the FA Cup fifth round on Saturday but Marcus Rashford was denied a record.

Visitors Reading were riding their luck and holding on until Casemiro opened the scoring in the 54th minute, dinking the ball over goalkeeper Joe Lumley from Antony's pass.

The former Real Madrid player extended United's lead four minutes later with a fizzing low shot from 25 metres.

Reading had almost taken the lead against the run of play just before the interval when Junior Hoilett had a great chance but his close-range shot was well saved by David de Gea.
