FA Cup: Lingard, Lukaku On Target As Man United Advance

FA Cup: Lingard, Lukaku On Target As Man United Advance”

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

Jose Mourinho remarked that the post "played well" for Derby as Man Utd secured a 2-0 win over the Rams in the FA Cup third round.

Scott Carson pulled off another save to deny Jesse Lingard from the edge of the area before Paul Pogba trickled an very bad effort wide on the rebound. Pogba was the one making things happen down the left, and the Frenchman just missed the crossbar with a rasping strike in the eighth minute as the home side continued to press early on.

The Red Devils have already lost to a Championship club this season, as they were dumped out of the Carabao Cup by Bristol City in December, and they could not be facing a more in-form side, as Derby have only lost one of their last 11 matches. Derby also created a scare as Martin Olsson rose higher to head Alex Pearce's corner but Sergio Romero tipped the goal bound header over the bar. "But the team kept trying so I knew the goal could arrive".

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.

Lukaku came off the United bench at the interval as Mourinho looked for more cutting edge in the final third of the field.

Therefore, we could see Matteo Darmian start at right-back while Daley Blind could be handed a rare start at left-back with Luke Shaw dropping out having started the last three games.

Derby grew in confidence and Tom Lawrence was next to force another save from Romero.

Lingard effectively won it for United in the 84th minute, however, when the Englishman netted his eighth goal in his last 10 appearances - finding the top corner from distance - to break Derby's hearts in the latter stages.
