Manchester United v Derby County

Late goals by in-form Jesse Lingard and fit-again striker Romelu Lukaku helped Manchester United to reach the FA Cup fourth round as they ground out a 2-0 home win over Championship (second-tier) side Derby County on Friday.

England midfielder Lingard let fly from outside the area with six minutes remaining for his fifth goal in his past six outings to finally break the resistance of the spirited Rams.

Manchester United had the first attempt on goal through captain Pogba firing a straight shot at Carson in the second minute.

Rashford certainly wasn't having the best of luck on the night, hitting the post for a second time in the 71st minute after releasing a fierce right-footed strike across goal from the right side of the box - Scott Carson was beaten.

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

Tom Lawrence almost sent Derby ahead two minutes before the hour with a thumping shot from just outside the box but Sergio Romero made a brilliant save at the bottom corner.

Marcus Olsson had Derby's first chance in the 22nd minute, and Sergio Romero had to be alert to tip over the crossbar.

Lingard, in the form of his life, pulled off a stunning first-time effort from outside the area to break the deadlock on 84 minutes.

Lukaku was next to head wide on 55 minutes, before Thomas Lawrence forced a diving save from Romero.

Marcus Rashford is in line to get a recall to the attack with Juan Mata making way while we could also see Henrikh Mkhitaryan given a run-out after falling out-of-favour recently.

Not to be outdone, Lukaku then played a good give-and-go with Anthony Martial before tucking his shot under the advancing Carson to secure United's passage to the FA Cup fourth round.
