Manchester United continued their impressive resurgence under interim manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer on Saturday afternoon, recording a 2-0 victory over Championship outfit Reading in the FA Cup at Old Trafford.

In truth, this was arguably United’s least convincing performance since Solskjaer replaced Jose Mourinho last month.

However, first-half goals from Juan Mata and Romelu Lukaku proved enough to send the in-form Red Devils through to the fourth round.

Solskjaer rested some of his first-team stars but was still able to name a strong starting line-up.

As well as Mata and Lukaku, the likes of Fred and Alexis Sanchez also started the match.

Sanchez was subbed off midway through the second half after suffering an injury. Marcus Rashford went on in place of the Chilean star, whose first 12 months at Old Trafford have been hugely disappointing.

The 30-year-old obviously hasn’t been substituted too many times at United because he inadvertently ended up sat in Solskjaer’s seat.

Yep, while United’s caretaker boss was on the touchline, Sanchez sat in the seat reserved solely for the manager. Oops.

Solskjaer returned and duly told the team’s number seven to move.

He’s lucky Solskjaer is such a nice guy and saw the funny side. If Mourinho was still in charge, we’d probably never see Sanchez in a United shirt again.

Over on Reddit, meanwhile, a screenshot from Man Utd’s Wikipedia showed that one fan (with way too much time on their hands, admittedly) amusingly edited the club’s page following Sanchez’s accidental antics in the dugout.

Under the ‘List of Manchester United managers’ section, it briefly showed Alexis as the manager in between two caretaker stints from Solskjaer.

Silly? Absolutely. But it still managed to raise a smile from United fans.

It was Solskjaer, rather than Sanchez, who was credited for the victory over Reading - and fairly so.

Sanchez may have been sat in the seat once occupied by the legendary Sir Alex Ferguson, but only for about one minute.

Sanchez and his teammates now travel to Dubai for some warm-weather training ahead of next weekend’s crunch Premier League clash against Tottenham at Wembley.

In what will be Solskjaer’s biggest test so far, United know that victory over Mauricio Pochettino’s side will enhance their chances of sealing a top-four finish.
