Manchester United captain Wayne Rooney is set to lead the Red Devils eleven out at Old Trafford as he starts against Reading in the third round of the prestigious FA Cup.

Jose Mourinho has rung in the changes with one eye on the Red Devils’ upcoming fixtures. Sergio Romero starts in goal, while the defence has also been revamped with the inclusion of Ashley Young, Daley Blind and Chris Smalling in the back four.

Michael Carrick is partnered by Marouane Fellaini in the midfield, while Anthony Martial, Marcus Rashford and Juan Mata have been entrusted with the attacking duties.

Paul Pogba, Zlatan Ibrahimovic and David De Gea, who have formed the core of almost every United line-up have been rested. Mourinho would hope the eleven that he has put out will be able to get the job done against an in-form Reading side.
