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

The visitors looked likely to force a replay before Lingard struck with a first-time shot in the 84th minute for his fourth goal in as many games after a fine brace in a 2-2 Premier League draw with Burnley and another in a 2-0 win over Everton.

Anthony Martial combined well with Lukaku on the counter in stoppage time to ensure of the victory and make it two games, two wins and two clean sheets to kick-off 2018.

To ease some of the tension around Old Trafford, a good run in the FA Cup may be the remedy.

That's 11 goals this season for Lingard, and another beauty.

This match could've been seen as a last chance for Henrikh Mkhitaryan to fight for his place, playing in his favoured central position against lower league opposition, but once again he didn't have the best of halves.

Three minutes later, Pogba had a chance to send United ahead but his curling shot from just outside the box towards the top corner missed wide.

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.

United also got good news regarding Romelu Lukaku, as the Belgian global will be fit and available to play after suffering a scary blow to the head against Southampton on December 30.

Pinned back for much of the contest, Derby launched several risky raids as defender Marcus Olsson and midfielder Tom Lawrence came close for the Rams, who finally cracked in the closing stages.

Ander Herrera was the next Manchester United player to come close six minutes later but the Spaniard failed to hit target from a set piece from Rashford.

But United deserved their win despite the visitors' fearless efforts to keep them out and go into the fourth round with hopes of lifting the trophy they last won in 2016.

"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". By that point, Paul Pogba had tested Carson with another free-kick.
