Jesse Lingard scores an absolute screamer to help Man United beat Derby

Jesse Lingard scores an absolute screamer to help Man United beat Derby

Manchester United qualified for the fourth round of the English FA Cup after defeating hard fighting Championship side Derby County 2-0 at Old Trafford on Friday.

At the other end, Marcus Olsson drew United stand-in goalkeeper Sergio Romero into a fine save.

The visitors had a rare chance three minutes before the break as Marcus Olsson fired a shot from just outside the box following a corner but it sailed over the bar and the half ended goalless.

Rashford thought he had finally broken the deadlock only for his effort across the face of goal from the right to cannon off the far post, while Lukaku - returning from a head injury sustained against Southampton last Saturday - also struck the woodwork, but was flagged offside in any event.

Scott Carson, Tom Huddlestone and Andreas Weimann also start, while Matej Vydra is on the substitute bench with David Nugent. The 32-year-old stopper had previously denied a Juan Mata free-kick and was having a fine, but busy half.

Rashford nodded against a post after being set up by Mkhitaryan ten minutes before the break, before heading straight at Carson - this time from a Mata delivery.

United looked as though they were lurching toward a replay before Lingard lit up the match with a fantastic shot from distance.

Jesse Lingard sent United ahead in the 84th minute, before Romelu Lukaku netted in the 90th minute as Derby's resistance was eventually broken.

However, with a replay suiting neither side both teams pushed forward for a victor and Lingard hit a great strike six minutes from time to put United ahead. Passage to the next round keeps the 2016 winners involved, but Mourinho will know his side need to play a lot better to go on and lift the cup come May.
