How Twitter reacted to Man United’s 4-0 demolition of Reading

| 07.01.2017

Manchester United breezed past visitors Reading in this afternoon’s Emirates FA Cup Third Round clash, scoring twice either side of half-time in a 4-0 victory.

We saw Marcus Rashford’s return to form, Ali Al-Habsi’s utter clanger and, of course, Wayne Rooney equalling Sir Bobby Charlton’s record of 249 Manchester United goals.

Here’s how Twitter reacted to it all…

Firstly, the hosts kept it simple to pay tribute to a remarkable achievement.

And United stars past and present chimed in to show their admiration.

But it was Rashford’s emphatic finish from about six inches out which seemed to excite one fan more!

The chance itself owed a lot to Ali Al-Habsi showing all the fine footwork of Ed Balls on the Strictly dancefloor. And it was bad timing from the Reading keeper in every sense.

And the Royals’ line-up did include a man who’s made a quite incredible rise to prominence – and went on to produce their best performance of the afternoon.

But of course, we’ll leave the last word to everyone’s favourite ‘fake Wayne Rooney’s son’ account…
