79' WHAT A HOWLER FROM AL-HABSI! He plays the ball out to Gunter, who returns the ball with a slightly underhit pass. The Omani keeper has the time to clear the ball, but makes a mess of his touch and Rashford pounces, tapping the ball into an empty net. Manchester United 4-0 Reading
75' FINALLY! Michael Carrick chips a lovely through ball to Rashford, whose controlled first touch gets him away from his marker, and he slots home into the bottom corner with a sweet right footed finish past a charging Al-Habsi to put the game to bed. Manchester United 3-0 Reading
73' Manchester United ramp up the pressure, as Mata swings in a free kick that is nervously cleared out for a corner. Blind sends in a teasing delivery that Fellaini attacks, but Reading clear and United have another corner.
72' SHOT! Another spell of Reading possession looks promising, but the move ends with Danny Williams trying an optimistic shot from range. The result is that United have had the pressure valve released - not the most intelligent decision from the Royals midfielder there.
60' HOW IS THIS NOT 3-0 YET?! Rooney and Rashford work the ball down the left with some excellent interplay, before Rooney fires in a low cross that's just begging to be turned in. Rashford is about to side foot the ball home, but van de Berg intercepts with a sliding touch to take the ball away from the youngster.
58' HOW DID HE MISS?! Juan Mata is sent clear by Wayne Rooney and he looks to have beaten Al-Habsi with an intelligent touch, but fires wide. He is spared the blushes by the linesman, who raises his flag for offside.
55' THAT SHOULD HAVE BEEN GOAL NO. 250! Fellaini fires in a low shot from the left edge of the box and the rebound falls to Rooney about two yards from goal. The united captain's effort is blocked by Al-Habsi who does well to get his body in the way of a record breaking goal
47! CHANCE! Phil Jones intercepts the ball in midfield and spreads the ball wide to Rashford, continuing his run into the box. The youngster ignores his centre-back and opts to fire in a cross to Rooney at the far post, and he shoots wide as he stretches to get his shot on target.
41' SUPERB DEFENDING! Young bullies his way past his marker on the right wing and sends in a low cross to Mata, who takes a superb touch to work a yard of space. He then strikes powerfully at goal, only to watch Evans block his effort.
