Nemanja Vicid missed Monday’s training as he’s still feeling the aches following the tough clashes at Lille and Fulham. The defender is set to miss the FA Cup game at Reading.

Several United players are likely to be rested as the Reds take on Reading in the FA Cup 5th round. With Ferguson’s men due to visit Liverpool on Saturday, the oldies will get some valuable rest: Edwin van der Sar, Ryan Giggs, Paul Scholes and Henrik Larsson are not expected to feature against the Royals.

Gary Neville could be recalled for the game after missing the clash with Fulham on Saturday but Nemanja Vidic could be out.
The Serbian defender had a torrid time at the Craven Cottage but had to be substituted not for his poor form but because of a minor injury. Mikael Silvestre is expected to deputise in his absence.

The game at the Madejski is the third in a series of bloody tough away games. United did not play particularly well in the first two but managed to snatch maximum points and the Reds are looking for another victory which would book them a place in the quarter-finals of the FA Cup and setting up a clash with either West Brom or Middlesbrough.
