The Red Devils head into the game looking to continue their fine domestic form after having won their last six games in the Premier League on the spin.

Manchester United seem to be finding their feet under new boss Jose Mourinho at Old Trafford after a shaky start under the newly-appointed Red Devils boss.

Mourinho’s men are currently sixth in the Premier League table and 10 points behind leaders Chelsea as they prepare for their crunch clash against Reading at Old Trafford.

And Schweinsteiger, who will be hoping to make a rare appearance for the Red Devils at Old Trafford on Saturday, used his personal Instagram account to urge his team-mates to focus on the game.

The World Cup winner posted the picture above on the app and wrote the caption: “Third round of the FA Cup today. Let’s go, @ManUtd! #mufc”

Manchester United won the FA Cup under Louis van Gaal last season.
