This blunt 1-0 victory over flailing Reading was the first good news United have had in a fortnight, but when your biggest problem is complacency you have little to worry about. There was so little anxiety about the outcome of this match that the home side almost forgot to win it. Gleeful predictions were made in the lead up of a meaty United victory, the real thing produced something closer to a wake. Old Trafford is still reeling from the manner of United’s Champions League exit.
