Manchester United has defeated Reading FC in a FA Cup match played at Old Trafford on Tuesday. United won the match by 2-1. With this victory, United made its way into the sixth round of the tournament.

United got a very good start in the match and could have taken the lead pretty early in the match, but, Chicharito’s flat shot was blocked by the Reading goalkeeper. United still had chance on the rebound, but, Danny Welbeck missed the opportunity.

Just a few seconds later, Welbeck again got a chance when Ashley Young passed the ball to him near the penalty area, but, Welbeck’s low shot went straight into the hands of the Reading goalkeeper Adam Federici and that chance also went begging.

Reading also had the chance of getting ahead in the first half, but, it was United’s come back man Nemanja Vidic who prevented them from taking the lead by clearing Nicky Shorey’s shot.


The manager of Manchester United, Sir Alex Ferguson, has said that Wayne Rooney will have to remain out of action for two more weeks as he has still not recovered from the knee injury that he had discovered while participating in the training session on Christmas Day.

It means that Rooney will miss United’s Premier League match against Liverpool which will be played on 13th of January.

Rooney has already missed three matches because of his knee injury and Ferguson’s statement suggests that he will have to miss a few more games.

When asked about Rooney’s injury, Ferguson said, “Rooney is still not fit. It’s really surprising because initially, we had thought that he wouldn’t need that much time to recover. We had expected him to get fit in 10 days or so. But, it’s getting longer than what we had anticipated.”


The former Everton striker Wayne Rooney is regarded as one of the best strikers in the world, but he is also equally adept at playing in a number of different positions across the pitch.

He has even been used as a defender by Sir Alex Ferguson on a few occasion. However, many think that his best position is just behind the striker. This season, he has largely found himself playing in the midfield due to the presence of Robin van Persie up front. The Dutchman was signing from Arsenal for £ 24 million, and his form has made it difficult for Sir Alex Ferguson to drop him.


The star striker of Manchester United, Wayne Rooney, is expected to make a comeback for his team in the Capital One Cup match against Newcastle United which is going to be played at Old Trafford on Wednesday.

Rooney hasn’t played any match for United since the last one month. He had injured his thigh severely while playing in the match against Fulham. But, he has recovered from that injury now. He has been practicing since the last 5 days and there is a good possibility of him featuring in the match against Newcastle United.
However, Sir Alex Ferguson hasn’t confirmed that Rooney is going to play against Newcastle United. When asked about Rooney’s fitness, Ferguson said, “Rooney has made a very quick recovery and he is almost fit.”


Manchester United striker Wayne Rooney has said that it is extremely imperative that the club maintain the consistency during this season in order to win any major trophy. Manchester United were left without any major trophy in the bag for the first time in four seasons last season. Sir Alex Ferguson will be hoping to lift the Premier league title this time around, which will be the record 20th Premier league title for Manchester United. It is also a major incentive that Sir Alex Ferguson will be looking to claim the title from Manchester United's arch rivals – Manchester city.


Manchester United striker Wayne Rooney's goal against Manchester City only a few months has been voted as the best goal in the 20 seasons of the Premier league.

Wayne Rooney's goal has nominated alongside Arsenal striker Dennis Bergkamp's goal against Newcastle back in 2002 and also the wonderful strike from Arsenal striker Thierry Henry against Manchester United in 2000.

Manchester United striker Wayne Rooney has said that he is targeting the record set by Sir Bobby Charlton at Manchester United many years ago.

Wayne Rooney has become one of the main players at Manchester United, and he has so far scored 28 goals in this season alone. He looks on course to beat the record of Dennis Viollet and George Best when it comes to the most number of goals scored for Manchester United.

Dennis Viollet and George Best are currently in the fourth place, while Sir Bobby Charlton leads the record. Wayne Rooney's 175 goals for Manchester United puts him just for behind Dennis Viollet and George Best.


Manchester United striker Wayne Rooney is back among the goals after scoring against Wolverhampton Wanderers in an English Premier League match at Old Trafford on Saturday.

The talismanic United forward has not been among the goals since the middle of September, a period stretching 723 minutes and his two goals against Wolves means he has ended his goal scoring drought this season that saw him begin with a bang and scoring two hat-tricks in successive matches against Bolton Wanderers and Chelsea. The goals cap off a good weekend for Rooney who saw his ban in the Euro 2012 reduced to 2 matches from 3 matches after an appeal, which means that he will definitely go to the Euros with the England squad.
