Manchester United will look to continue their strong cup run as they host Reading in the FA Cup fourth round on Saturday evening. The Red Devils are fresh off a 3-0 victory over Nottingham Forest in the first leg of the Carabao Cup semi-final on Wednesday.

However, United will have to make do without injured right-back Diogo Dalot and left-back Luke Shaw, who is not yet ready to return after missing the midweek match with an illness.

On the positive side, captain Harry Maguire will be back in the starting lineup after serving a suspension. Winger Jadon Sancho, who hasn’t played since October 22, will not be involved and has been undergoing personal training sessions in the Netherlands.

United manager, Erik ten Hag, has decided to give some young players a chance by including Facundo Pellistri, Alejandro Garnacho, and 17-year-old Kobbie Mainoo on the bench. Ten Hag has also made just one change to the starting lineup, with Maguire taking the place of Lisandro Martinez at center-back.
