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

Jesse Lingard of Manchester United is chased by George Thorne of Derby County during the Emirates FA Cup Third Round match between Manchester United and Derby County at Old Trafford

This time, he helped book his team's spot in the fourth round of the FA Cup after scoring a late victor against Derby County - a club at which he'd played for on loan earlier in his career.

The away side's only challenging attempt on target came straight afterwards, as Johnny Russell's cross from the left found the head of Marcus Olsson, and Sergio Romero had to work to direct the effort over the crossbar.

As the end of the first-half approached, United were set up in a 2-1-7 formation with Ander Herrera sat in front of Smalling and Blind while Luke Shaw and Victor Lindelöf became impromptu wingers.

Juan Mata gets another run out while Henrikh Mkhitaryan is given a chance to impress as he supports Marcus Rashford in attack with the likes of Romelu Lukaku and Anthony Martial on the bench.

Meanwhile, Matej Vydra, who has scored 14 goals in 22 Championship matches this term, replaced frontman Sam Winnall at the same time as Gary Rowett looked to build on his outfit's solid performance.

United had been frustrated earlier in the game, striking the post on a number of occasions and forcing Scott Carson in to making a number of saves. The Czech Republic worldwide was soon in the thick of it, getting off a shot in the box after being teed up by Andreas Weimann.

It was a huge relief for a United side that appeared destined for a frustrating third-round replay having wasted a glut of chances, and Lukaku made sure of the win in the closing stages. BBC Sport's Simon Stone described the decisive moment.

Jesse Lingard sent United ahead in the 84th minute, before Romelu Lukaku netted in the 90th minute as Derby's resistance was eventually broken. Passage to the next round keeps the 2016 winners involved, but Mourinho will know his side need to play a lot better to go on and lift the cup come May.
