Late goals by in-form Jesse Lingard and fit-again striker Romelu Lukaku helped Manchester United to reach the FA Cup fourth round as they ground out a 2-0 home win over Championship (second-tier) side Derby County on Friday.

"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".

Pogba was off target with a ninth-minute curler while Rashford was similarly wide from an ambitious effort with 17 minutes on the clock.

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.

Lingard and Paul Pogba both had early attempts for a United team that started on the front foot at Old Trafford.

Carson was brilliantly equal to a long-range Pogba free-kick just before the break, and shortly after the restart Luke Shaw's head deflected Tom Huddlestone's fierce drive away from United's goal.

But Jose Mourinho's side never gave up, with Lingard finally finding the back of the net in the 84th minute after a superb strike from outside the box into the top corner of the net.

Marcus Rashford is in line to get a recall to the attack with Juan Mata making way while we could also see Henrikh Mkhitaryan given a run-out after falling out-of-favour recently.

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

Rashford hit the left side of post with a right-footed shot in the 70th minute from the right side of the box after neatly inter-changing passes with Lingard.

Having set up the first, Lukaku got on the scoresheet himself by finishing off a quick counter-attack after a one-two with Anthony Martial to ensure United avoided a troublesome replay at the end of a hectic festive schedule.
