Manchester United overcome Derby County in FA Cup

Manchester United and Liverpool are through to the fourth round of this season's FA Cup.

United got its first win in five matches on Monday by notching two second-half goals to get a 2-0 win at Everton.

Receiving the ball on the edge of the box, United's outstanding talent of recent weeks curled a majestic effort around a helpless Scott Carson in the Derby goal.

"The Championship is coming in a direction where they are Premier League level, they just play in another competition".

Jesse Lingard has continued the rich vein of form which saw him win Manchester United's Player of The Month award for December into 2018.

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

Mkhitaryan eventually got a cross right with 10 minutes of the first 45 left, directing an in-swinger from the left into a crowd of men in the Derby area, and Marcus Rashford rose highest to direct his header onto the post.

Paul Pogba kicked off proceedings by picking out Lingard from the left, but his shot deflected over the bar.

Pogba came close to breaking the deadlock eight minutes into the second half after finding space in the centre of the box but somehow missed the target with a right footed shot.

However, with a replay suiting neither side both teams pushed forward for a victor and Lingard hit a great strike six minutes from time to put United ahead.

The Red Devils hit the woodwork again minutes later from Romelu Lukaku's header, but a goal wouldn't have counted anyway as the big Belgian was ruled offside.

In the second half, Jose Mourinho introduced Romelu Lukaku hooking off Henrikh Mkhitaryan in the process but it was Derby who came close to scoring.
