Manchester United overcome Derby County in FA Cup

  • Manchester United's Henrikh Mkhitaryan in action last night

When you look at the name Jesse Lingard on the Manchester United roster, next to guys like Zlatan Ibrahimovic, Paul Pogba and Romelu Lukaku, he's just an afterthought.

Scott Carson's first terrific free-kick stops came on 21 minutes after Juan Mata was floored by Alex Pearce whilst trying to complete a one-two 20 yards out, and the subsequent set-piece was tipped wide for a corner before it could find the top left corner.

Manchester United advanced to the next round of the FA Cup after defeating Derby County 2-0 at Old Trafford.

More crosses were massively evading their targets, and he sent the opposition on a counter-attack with a disastrous pass backwards eventually finding it's way to Sam Winnall on the edge of the area - luckily for Mkhitaryan, his shot was skewed well wide.

Pogba was off target with a ninth-minute curler while Rashford was similarly wide from an ambitious effort with 17 minutes on the clock.

Red Devils captain Michael Carrick, who underwent a heart procedure earlier this season and has not featured since September, has returned to training but will not be considered.

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 Rashford hit the post twice, while Romelu Lukaku - a half time sub for Henrikh Mkhitaryan - also hit the woodwork with a header.

But when you get past 80 minutes and the goal hasn't come, you fear the second match.

The wonder strike saved United's blushes with just six minutes remaining, while also equalling Lingard's scoring tally from his previous three seasons, per Luckhurst.

Lukaku, who showed no ill-effects following his return from a head injury, then doubled the home side's lead in the final moments when he converted after smart work from fellow substitute Anthony Martial.
