Two late goals ended Derby County's brave resistance in their FA Cup third round tie with Manchester United at Old Trafford on Friday (Jan 5). Former Rams loanee Jesse Lingard broke the deadlock seven minutes from time and Romelu Lukaku sealed a 2-0 victory for Jose Mourinho's men in the dying moments.
Manchester United left it late to beat Derby County in an entertaining FA Cup third-round game at Old Trafford. A replay looked on the cards until Romelu Lukaku laid the ball off to Jesse Lingard, who took a touch and sent a 20-yard shot on the bounce into the top corner. And half-time substitute Lukaku sealed the win after playing a one-two with Anthony Martial to cap off a counter attack.
Man United striker Marcus Rashford had hit the post in both halves -- with a close-range header that he should have buried and a fierce shot across goal. Rams keeper Scott Carson was excellent, making eight saves, including fine stops to keep out Juan Mata and Paul Pogba free-kicks.
Derby, second in the Championship, played well and Tom Lawrence forced a good diving save from Sergio Romero.
