Manchester United beat Reading 2-0 in their FA Cup tie at Old Trafford on Saturday afternoon.

A Juan Mata penalty - awarded after a long delay to check using VAR - and a Romelu Lukaku strike were enough to seal victory.

7 - Solskjaer made nine changes from the 2-0 win over Newcastle on Wednesday.

Solskjaer said he is keen to win trophies this season but suggested that the style, for now, was more important.

"Newcastle away, I thought that was a professional performance". We never had a kick the first five minutes.

Keen to play down a relatively kind fixture list at the beginning of his appointment, Solskjaer took time to highlight the difficulty in picking up points against any team in the top tier of English football. "That's important for them because they need more game time".

"I'm sure they've got their targets, I'm here to voice my opinion on that and I'm sure we'll sit down, me and Ed [Woodward] if we've got anything in the pipeline". He took his goal excellently, rounding the goalkeeper easily before tucking away.

"But we got the goals and managed to get through".

Alexis Sanchez came off the bench against the Magpies but the Chilean should get his first start under Solskjaer's regime while academy graduate Mason Greenwood is also expected to start in place of Marcus Rashford upfront.

Orthodox churches in other countries are aligning with Moscow or Constantinople in the rift. It named Epiphany Dumenko as head of the new "autocephalous church".

"But then they were probably checking if it was offside or not, probably was".

But Solskjaer is confident the Chile worldwide will be available for selection at Wembley in a crunch Premier League clash next time out.

"Lukaku and Sanchez will start. I am not the first one, Angel [Gomes] has had a chance too", Chong told MUTV.

"I'm happy with squad I've got". Hopefully he won't be too bad. Now he's had 60 minutes, so it's about building up again. I think the manager he has done a brilliant job.

While United continue to fight on three fronts, Reading can now focus on their relegation scrap with renewed confidence. They created goal situations.

"That stood us in good stead towards the end of the season, so it is a time to work hard".

Scott McTominay was one of United's only consistently good players throughout the match, winning seven tackles and ending the game with the best pass completion rate of any of the home side's starting XI (92.3 per cent).

"It means that it is missing in my team like a killer instinct".
