Manchester United certainly have a point to prove this weekend. I’m sure they will field a very strong side and go for the jugular. If they don’t, I will be very surprised. They are coming up against a Reading team that has just had its manager inexplicably sacked midweek and has already been struggling for results.
Reading are currently sitting in 19th place level on both points and goal difference with QPR. Not a good place to be. They are looking destined for the drop and losing Brian McDermott is not going to help. They are riding a 4 game losing streak and their string of results in January look to be such a long, long time ago.
It’s going to take an amazing display for Reading to come through with a result against Manchester United at Old Trafford. I just don’t see that happening at all. My prediction is a United win and it should be a significant win. Reading will be coming in with a new interim manager, and I just don’t see them doing well at all Not to mention that United should be on the warpath following their Champions League loss and giving away a 2 goal lead in the FA Cup.
Manchester United (W, W, W, W, W) 3 – 0 Reading (W, L, L, L, L)
