Manchester United vs. Reading: FA Cup 5th-Round Live Score, Highlights, Recap

Old Trafford—Manchester, England

Manchester United 2-1 Reading

Man Utd survived a major FA Cup scare in beating Reading 2-1 in the fifth round of the FA Cup.

The first half was evenly contested with both teams clearly "up for the cup" and the 0-0 scoreline at half time was far from representative of the proceedings.

Substitute Nani finally broke the deadlock with a piercing effort, then Javier Hernandez fired in a quick second to seemingly seal the result.

Reading weren't done though, and some torrid defending by the Red Devils saw Jobi McAnuff take advantage of a half clearance to fire past David de Gea.

It set up a nervy finish with goalkeeper Adam Federici going forward for a last-minute set piece, but United held on.
