Jesse Lingard Leads Manchester United to FA Cup Win vs. Derby County

Jesse Lingard Leads Manchester United to FA Cup Win vs. Derby County

United, by contrast, have only won one of their last five games, although that victory did come last time out against Everton, while they have won five of their last six clashes with Derby, a run that includes a 3-1 victory when the two sides last met in the FA Cup in 2016.

When you look at the name Jesse Lingard on the Manchester United roster, next to guys like Zlatan Ibrahimovic, Paul Pogba and Romelu Lukaku, he's just an afterthought.

Scott Carson pulled off another save to deny Jesse Lingard from the edge of the area before Paul Pogba trickled an terrible effort wide on the rebound.

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

Rashford wastefully blasted high from just inside the area after showing great feet to work his way into the box and, for all their dominance, it took United until the 21st minute to force Scott Carson into a save, the former England goalkeeper flying to his right to keep out Juan Mata's free-kick.

More crosses were massively evading their targets, and he sent the opposition on a counter-attack with a disastrous pass backwards eventually finding it's way to Sam Winnall on the edge of the area - luckily for Mkhitaryan, his shot was skewed well wide.

Rashford headed against the Derby post in the 34th minute, before heading straight at Carson three minutes later as the score somehow stayed goalless. It was Derby that had the first half-chance of the second half, however, with Tom Huddlestone seeing his strike deflect just wide.

At the other end, Marcus Olsson's clever flicked header from Johnny Russell's left-wing cross forced Sergio Romero into his first action of the evening.

Lingard, in the form of his life, pulled off a stunning first-time effort from outside the area to break the deadlock on 84 minutes.

Not to be outdone, Lukaku then played a good give-and-go with Anthony Martial before tucking his shot under the advancing Carson to secure United's passage to the FA Cup fourth round.
