Sir Alex made 8 changes to the side that played at the Bernabeau last week for the Cup tie against Reading on Monday night. The biggest change however was made after 42 minutes when Nani replaced the injured Phil Jones.
The Portuguese winger who has been inconsistent for all his time at United turned on the style to push us just beyond the finishing line and into the FA Cup quarterfinals with a goal and an assist for Chicharito's winner.
Our play was largely the usual poor with nothing really outstading save for the efforts of Danny Welbeck and later on Nani when he joined. The Captain though was at his solid best at the back winning header after header and keeping Reading up until we conceeded.
We've got QPR in the league next up on Saturday at three o'clock--a rarity of a time to kickoff. Saturday presents us with one last opportunity to twist the knife on City ahead of their Sunday game against Chelsea. It will be damning to go 15 points clear of them and hence put ourselves in a rock solid position ahead of the title run-in.
ONWARDS AND UPWARDS!
