'He is unplayable' – Reading boss Ince reveals the one player he is praying doesn't feature for Man Utd in FA Cup clash | The Sun

READING manager Paul Ince is hoping "unplayable" Marcus Rashford doesn't play for Manchester United in their FA Cup clash this weekend.

Ince takes his side to Old Trafford to face his former side in the fourth round on Saturday in search of a major cup shock.

It's the Royals' third trip to United in this competition in the space of seven years.

On the two previous occasions they've lost comfortably and if this game goes to form, a third defeat is on the cards.

Ince recognised United's array of "top" talent across the pitch, but is particularly wary of Rashford, who made it 10 goals in as many games with the opener against Nottingham Forest in the Carabao Cup on Wednesday.

The ex-United midfielder joked: "Hopefully he's not going to play!

"I was a bit disappointed they won 3-0 the other night because he might play against us now because it looks like that tie is more or less over.

"Like any player, it's all about confidence and the right manager coming in and noticing how to build confidence.

"It is never easy because we saw in the past two years he had lost some of it.

"To see him doing what he does best is great for Manchester United and their fans.

"He is unplayable at the moment, unstoppable.

"The goal he scored against Forest showed what type of form he is in. We can;t be thinking about stopping Rashford though.

"They have so many top players – Christian Eriksen, Bruno Fernandes, Wout Weghorst who got his first goal against Forest.

"It's not about us stopping players, it's about us going there and putting in a performance."

Ahead of the game, Rashford is hoping to score in his TENTH Old Trafford appearance on the bounce, while United are searching for their eleventh consecutive home victory.
