Jesse Lingard Scores Yet Another Screamer In United's 3rd Round Win

Derby County boss Gary Rowett had a pop at Manchester United after Friday's FA Cup defeat.

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

"It was a great shot by Jesse Lingard in the top corner, he's in a moment of confidence where things go well for him".

Derby finds itself in good position to secure promotion to the Premier League, as the Rams sit second in the Championship with 49 points. Sam Winnall then dragged one wide of the United post just before the half-hour mark as the visitors started to enjoy themselves.

The England forward was unlucky to see another effort crash against the woodwork in the second half, while Paul Pogba was also profligate.

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.

On the other hand, the Rams are now unbeaten in their last seven matches and are second in the Championship with a fine shot of getting a chance to coming back to the Premier League.

Romelu Lukaku sealed the match in the last minute with a low shot from the centre of the box after being sent through by Anthony Martial following a fast counter-attack, 2-0.

Ander Herrera was the next Manchester United player to come close six minutes later but the Spaniard failed to hit target from a set piece from Rashford.

Samuel Luckhurst of the Manchester Evening News confirmed both lineups, with United giving a start to Henrikh Mkhitaryan, while Marcus Rashford led the line up top.

Rashford thought he had found the breakthrough in the 37th minute with a header from the centre of the box but goalkeeper Scott Carson was equal to the task and kept his side in the match.

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