Manchester United v Derby County

Manchester United v Derby County

Manchester United host Derby County in the third round of the FA Cup on Friday at Old Trafford.

The breakthrough would eventually come on 84 minutes, with Lingard unleashing a cracking effort from outside the box after a lay-off from sub Romelu Lukaku. They're two clear of Cardiff City and Britsol City for third place and seven clear of seventh-place Sheffield United.

"The Championship is coming in a direction where they are Premier League level, they just play in another competition".

This match could've been seen as a last chance for Henrikh Mkhitaryan to fight for his place, playing in his favoured central position against lower league opposition, but once again he didn't have the best of halves.

Pogba tried to break the deadlock from a free-kick, but Scott Carson was equal to it in the Derby goal.

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.

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.

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.

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

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.

The ball went astray outside the left side of the area and who else but Jesse Lingard was there to pull off an unbelievable first-time strike to bend the ball away from the 'keeper and into the top right corner - Carson was brilliant on the night but there was no stopping that.
