Plymouth Argyle’s goalless draw at Liverpool on Sunday was a surprising result of the third round with credit due to the League Two club. Jürgen Klopp’s Liverpool side will have a fight on their hands not to be eliminated in the replay next week to go on to a home game with Wolverhampton Wanderers at Home Park. Martyn Starnes, Argyle chief executive said they would be happy to play the Wolves at home. “When we beat Liverpool – that is a bit of task on our hands – but we’re really happy to have a home draw. Wolves are a massive club so they’re bound to bring a big crowd.” Sutton United will host Leeds United if the lower tier National League’s 14th-placed team defeat AFC Wimbledon in their third round replay next week. In third round action over the weekend, Manchester United defeated Reading 4-0 at Old Trafford. Marcus Rashford scored two goals, his first since September. Although Rashford was no doubt frustrated, his fifth Manchester United goal was Rashford’s first strike since 24 September, in his 10th start since then. José Mourinho rested Zlatan Ibrahimovic and fielded Rashford in against ex-United footballer and now Reading manager Jaap Stam’s side. Rashford’s response was to score twice.
After the match Rashford talked with the press about his goalless spell. “I think, halfway through the period of not scoring, it was a bit frustrating but, after I started to settle down again and getting some assists, and I was starting to play better football and now the goals have come so I’m just happy,” said Rashford. United’s superstar striker and captain Wayne Rooney opened the scoring in the match to become Manchester United’s joint-record holding top goal scorer with his 249th goal for United, tying with Sir Bobby Charlton. Thirty-one-year-old Rooney’s current contract ends in summer 2019, as Wazza approaches his 35th birthday. The 31-year-old was key in the 4-0 win against Jaap Stam’s team that put the FA Cup holders into the fourth round.
