It was on of the most frantic first half anybody would have witnessed in recent times. All 7 goals came in the first half. Robson-Kanu got Reading in front with a glorious shot but Manchester United didn’t take much time to plot their comeback as they scored quickly through Anderson and Rooney. But Reading took the lead back with Le Fondre and then Morrison. But that was it from Reading. United then scored two more through Rooney and Van Persie. And this all happened in the first half.
RVP did ‘Torressed’ a goal though, it was open, as open as it gets. And they even changed the ball.
