ZLATAN MISSED THE GAME DUE TO ILLNESS

Manchester United-Hull City 2-0, League Cup Semifinal 1:2.

 

NO ZLATAN

Zlatan was rested against Reading in the FA Cup on Saturday and should have started today, but an hour before kickoff Manchester United announced Zlatan would not play due to illness.

 

MATA SCORED THE OPENER IN THE SECOND HALF

Except for Zlatan (ill), Rojo (injured) and Carrick (rested) Mourinho basically played his first team (Martial on the bench though). Many expected an "easy" game for United like against Reading but Hull, with newly appointed manager Marcos Silva, put up a good fight in the first half and it was 0-0 at halftime. In the 56th minute Mkhitaryan won a header duel in the box and the ball went to Mata, who tappied it in the open net. 1-0 to Manchester United.

 

FELLAINI GAVE UNITED A NICE POSITION FOR THE RETURN

Mourinho replaced goalscorer Mata with Marouane Fellaini in the 79th minute and with three minutes left he paid his manager back. Darmian crossed into the box and Fellaini strongly lobheaded the ball over Jakupovic. 2-0 to Manchester United.

 

Manchester United won 2-0 which was their 9th straight win in all competitions. The second semifinal is played in Hull on January 26.

 

GOALS.

56' - 1-0. Juan Mata, Manchester United. Assist: Henrikh Mkhitaryan.

2017.01.07 | Man Utd-Reading 4-0

ROONEY TIED CHARLTON'S RECORD - ZLATAN RESTED

Manchester United-Reading 4-0, FA Cup 3rd Round.

 

ROONEY TIED THE GOALSCORING RECORD

Mourinho rotated the squad quite substantially, resting Zlatan, Pogba, Herrera and De Gea. Rooney started behind Rashford up front and in the seventh minute Rooney scored his 249th goal for Manchester United, tying the all time goalscoring record with Bobby Charlton. 1-0 to Man Utd.

 

MARTIAL EXTENDING THE LEAD

Many thought Reading, who are currently third in the Championship, would put on a tough challenge. But in the first fifteen minutes there was only one team on the pitch. United came in attack after attack and in the 15th minute Anthony Martial scored a nice goal. Wayne Rooney set him up and he placed the ball nicely in the corner, 2-0 to Man Utd. Rashford could have scored a third goal but it was 2-0 at halftime.

 

TWO GOALS FROM RASHFORD

Marcus Rashford missed quite a few opportunites both in the first half in the second but he kept being dangerous and in the end he scored not only once, but twice. In the 75th minute Carrick found him with an excellent through ball and he placed the ball decisively into the back of the net, 3-0. And then four minutes later, Reading's goalie Al-Habsi made a complete mess of a back pass and Rashford tapped in 4-0.

 

Zlatan didn't have to play today and Manchester United easily advanced to the 4th round in the FA Cup.

 

GOALS.

7' - 1-0. Wayne Rooney, Manchester United. Assist: Juan Mata.
15' - 2-0. Anthony Martial, Manchester United. Assist: Wayne Rooney.
