Manchester United manager Sir Alex Ferguson insists that his side will have to play well to defeat Reading in the FA Cup fifth round on Monday night.

Manchester United manager Sir Alex Ferguson has warned his side not to get carried away after their performances in recent weeks.

United have opened up a 12-point lead at the top of the Premier League table while also earning a 1-1 draw away at Real Madrid in the Champions League in midweek.

However, Ferguson has insisted that his side must play to the best of their ability to see off Reading on Monday evening.

Ferguson told reporters: "We should not get carried away, particularly in the FA Cup when anything can happen. You don't want to be a shock.

"In many people's eyes, Monday would be, 'yes, it's Reading, we have just been to Madrid, it was a great night, Monday will take care of itself'.

"Monday can't take care of itself. We have to take care of that."

Ferguson has already revealed that he will make changes to his side for the match at Old Trafford.
