Manchester United overcome Derby County in FA Cup

Jesse Lingard claims he has proved Jose Mourinho wrong after 'joke' misses

United took on Derby tonight at Old Trafford in the FA Cup and it took an 83rd minute wonderstrike from the England global to see them through to the fourth round.

That opener flattened out the game as United looked comfortable in possession, but Romelu Lukaku struck in stoppage time to double the lead and seal progression to the Fourth Round of the FA Cup.

Scott Carson pulled off another save to deny Jesse Lingard from the edge of the area before Paul Pogba trickled an bad effort wide on the rebound.

Lukaku scored late to add gloss to the scoreline, but United had been far from impressive on the night. Pogba was the one making things happen down the left, and the Frenchman just missed the crossbar with a rasping strike in the eighth minute as the home side continued to press early on. But Sam Winnall failed to profit as he dragged his shot wide.

Friday will mark United's 2018 FA Cup debut, as Premier League clubs receive a buy into the third round. Scott Carson played well and the post played well for them.




Pogba then curled one wide of Carson's post moments later as both teams had opportunities after the restart.

Derby have injury concerns heading into match as Tom Lawrence, Joe Ledley and Bradley Johnson are all major doubts.

In the 24th minute, United earned a free-kick on the edge of the Derby box but Mata's effort was saved brilliantly by Carson.

Lingard effectively won it for United in the 84th minute, however, when the Englishman netted his eighth goal in his last 10 appearances - finding the top corner from distance - to break Derby's hearts in the latter stages.

Having set up the first, Lukaku got on the scoresheet himself by finishing off a quick counter-attack after a one-two with Anthony Martial to ensure United avoided a troublesome replay at the end of a hectic festive schedule.
