Reading team news

Here is the home side’s team for today then

Manchester United team news

And here is how the visitors are lining up:

Reading v Manchester United

Can Reading become the first team to beat Casey Stoney’s side in the league this season?

Kelly Chambers’ side have drawn their last four games and are without a win in five. But I’m sure they would take a point against this ruthless Red Devils team today.

United come into this one looking to extend their lead at the top of the table before Chelsea face Brighton and Manchester City host Arsenal later on.

Reading v Manchester United

Fans are back for Reading today, great to see. Can the home side pull off a shock upset to give them something to shout about?


Reading v Manchester United

The players have just emerged from the tunnel to a lovely smattering of applause from around the Majeski Stadium. Wonderful stuff.

Reading 0-0 Manchester United

1 min: Here we go then! The WSL leaders get us underway.

Reading 0-0 Manchester United

2 min: Positive start from Tobin Heath as she charges forward from the midfield and eventually it spins off a Reading player and out for a corner.

Heath whips in the set-piece but it’s dealt with at the near post.

Reading 0-0 Manchester United

4 min: Three corners in the opening four minutes for Manchester United as the hosts slip back into their defensive block. Could be a long afternoon for The Royals’ back line.

Toone is caught offside after the third corner is cleared and Reading are finally granted a bit of rest-bite.

Reading 0-0 Manchester United

6 min: Direct ball through the middle runs straight through to Mary Earps. You imagine Reading will have to be direct if they are to enjoy success going forward today.

Eikeland whips in a dangerous ball towards Harding but the Reading striker just can’t quite get a toe to the ball. Warning sign for the league leaders.

Reading 0-0 Manchester United

9 min: CHANCE! Another cross from the right-hand side is cleared by Manchester United but it drops to Jess Fishlock on the edge of the area who thrashes a shot on the half volley just over the bar.

Close. United on the back foot now.
