FA Cup match report Manchester United v Derby County 05 January 2018

Two late goals in the final five minutes from Jesse Lingard and Romelu Lukaku secured a place in Monday's draw for the fourth round of the competition for the Red Devils.

Manchester United book their spot in the fourth round of the FA Cup courtesy of a 2-0 win over Derby County at Old Trafford.

Scott Carson then dealt comfortably with a Pogba drive from the edge of the box before Ander Herrera headed wide from close range from a Marcus Rashford free-kick.

Lingard and Paul Pogba both had early attempts for a United team that started on the front foot at Old Trafford. But Sam Winnall failed to profit as he dragged his shot wide.

Three minutes later, Pogba had a chance to send United ahead but his curling shot from just outside the box towards the top corner missed wide.

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.

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

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.

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.

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.

A second would follow soon following a fast break from the hosts, with Lukaku playing a one-two with Anthony Martial before slotting home.
