Manchester United's season has taken a definite upswing on the road to Premier League silverware and a spot in next season's Champions League! United’s joint top goal scorer in history Wayne Rooney has won every domestic title and trophy after the Red Devils defeated Crystal Palace 1-2 in the 2016 FA Cup Final.

Titan Premier League club Manchester United have won eight consecutive matches for the first time since September 2009. Veteran Manchester United superstar striker and team captain Wayne Rooney equaled United's goal scoring record today. Anthony Martial scored after Rooney, and teenager Marcus Rashford scored twice as United easily beat Reading 4-0 in the FA Cup third round on Saturday at Old Trafford as Manchester United continued their defence of the coveted FA Cup trophy at home against Championship club Reading, managed by former Man United defender Jaap Stam. FA Cup holders Man United powered through to the FA Cup fourth round.

Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho said after the match, “We know that Wayne Rooney will be the best scorer” for the club after the England captain equaled Sir Bobby Charlton’s goal scoring record during their 4-0 victory against Reading in the FA Cup third round.

In United’s eighth win in a row, Wayne Rooney became Manchester United's joint all-time leading scorer as the holders cruised into the FA Cup fourth round. Rooney earned his 249th goal for United within 10 minutes to match the 44-year-old record of Sir Bobby Charlton, who was at the match watching.

Anthony Martial added a second in the first half. Marcus Rashford added the third then doubled his tally after an error by Reading keeper Ali Al-Habsi.

The loss marked the Old Trafford return for Reading boss and former United defender Jaap Stam, whose team was outclassed throughout the matchNext for United is Tuesday's EFL Cup semi-final first leg against Hull.

Rooney has featured for United in 543 games for the club since arriving from Everton in a £27m transfer in 2004.With only seven minutes on the clock United skipper Rooney put his right knee to Juan Mata's lofted pass to guide the ball beyond Reading goalie Al-Habsi to score.

“Rooney's landmark strike arrived 215 matches and four seasons quicker than Charlton's 249th, which came in a 2-0 victory over Southampton in March 1973.”

Young Frenchman Martial added United's second after 15 minutes and again Rooney was involved, playing the go-between in a one-two that resulted in the 21-year-old advancing unchallenged before curling in a lovely finish. Rooney came close to a historic 250th United goal when his close-range follow-up hit the leg of the sprawling Al-Habsi. Rashford scored his first goal in 18 games.

Wayne Rooney said it was an honor to be one of Manchester United’s two top goal scorers in the history of the club.

"To do it at such a massive club like Manchester United, I am hugely honoured and it is really proud moment for me. It was not something I could have imagined. You don't think that far ahead, but I have been at this club a long time, it is a huge part of my life and it is an honour to be up there alongside Sir Bobby”, said Rooney. "You want to do records in front of your home fans and we have got two home games coming up and hopefully I can get the next one in one of those."

Jose Mourinho, United manager, was happy with his side’s professional performance.

"I am happy because it was a professional job from minute one. We knew Reading could create difficulties, especially if you allow them to settle in the game,” said Mourinho. "It is also good for me to see some of the players that are not starting in many games - they are good physically and I can count on them for the rest of the season.”
