The 3rd round of the F.A Cup will see Manchester United host Reading this Saturday, and it’s widely expected that Jose Mourinho will hand a large chunk of his senior players a deserved rest after a hectic end-of-the-year schedule.

Against the Championship side, led by former Manchester United defender Jaap Stam, a mix of experience, youth and 2nd-string players is anticipated for the Red Devils lineup, and the game would be a perfect opportunity for some of these players to prove their stuff.

A couple of Manchester United youngsters have had limited playing time this season, and here are 3 of such who are deserving of a chance when Reading come visiting.

Timothy Fosu-Mensah

The Dutch teenager has largely been on the fringes of first team action this season, and it seems the versatile player will have to wait for his breakthrough season at the Theater of Dreams.

Mensah has seen just Premier League action for just a minute this term, played 95 minutes of Europa League football and wasn’t even allowed to finish the EFL Cup clash against Northampton, getting withdrawn 10 minutes after the restart.

A position the 19-year-old would most likely be afforded action in the lineup this weekend would be at right-back, with Antonio Valencia making way.

Mensah has a lot of convincing to do and would hope to help the team to clinch an 8th consecutive victory across all competitions.
