No talks yet on long-term Man Utd future, says Solskjaer

Manchester United interim manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer celebrates with Paul Pogba

"I've been banging on in these columns about man-management being an important element of modern day football - how coaches still need to "manage" the mentality and emotions of their team".

United are due to fly to Dubai after the game for a warm weather training camp, ahead of the trip to Tottenham on January 13, and Solskjaer was warned his squad to expect four days of hard work.

Sheffield Wednesday and Luton Town drew 0-0. Reading made it really hard for us.

Sone Aluko was denied by a good save from Romero, but United were mostly comfortable in the closing minutes as they secured their place in next Monday's fourth-round draw.

DF Diogo Dalot, 7 - Defended aggressively and got forward when he could.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer took responsibility for Manchester United's lacklustre display against Reading after admitting his team selection had made the task more hard.

The second half was one to forget, as Reading had much more of the ball and had the better chances, which will have brought some of the scores down...

Arsenal bid for Navas continues Emery’s odd relationship with summer signing Leno
The unwanted defensive record has reportedly forced Emery into making bids for some wonderful defenders, including a goalkeeper. Arsenal manager Unai Emery has denied reports linking the club with a move for Real Madrid goalkeeper Keylor Navas .

DF Matteo Darmian, 7 - Playing in an unfamiliar role at centre-back but did well.

But it wasn't plain sailing for Lukaku, and the Belgian did struggle for most of the first half.

Paul Pogba has been the man in the news with the World Cup victor looking back to somewhere near his best in the weeks since Mourinho left the club, but he isn't the only one who has benefited from a new man at the helm. Asked to play deeper again once Fellaini came on. Shielded the back four and made a good block in his own penalty area from Andy Yiadom's effort. He will play alongside Romelu Lukaku and Juan Mata in the attack.

But United are likely to go with a strong side with Romelu Lukaku and Alexis Sanchez both in line to start. It far from a flawless performance and he will be annoyed to have only scored one goal, but his ability to take one of the two good chances he had was ultimately the difference between the two side.

MF Tahith Chong, 6 - Positive debut for the Dutch teenager.

That trio is likely to start on the bench against Tottenham, with Anthony Martial, Marcus Rashford and Jesse Lingard seemingly Solskjaer's preferred front three.

FW Marcus Rashford, 7- Looked risky on the left.
