Yesterdays 5th round FA Cup draw gave Manchester United another home tie this time against struggling Reading. It was the only all premier league match to come out of the draw but nevertheless Sir Alex Ferguson will be pleased that his side will have the advantage of playing at home. With Liverpool being the fifth top-flight team to exit the FA Cup to a lower league side United’s chances of progressing further look even better. Rivals Manchester City also have a home tie against Leeds United and ties will be played on the weekend of 16/17th February.
Meanwhile United will be back in action on Wednesday night when Southampton visit Old Trafford.
