Manchester United will be hoping to book their place in the fourth round of the FA Cup when they entertain Derby County at Old Trafford this evening.

At the other end, Marcus Olsson drew United stand-in goalkeeper Sergio Romero into a fine save.

Derby finds itself in good position to secure promotion to the Premier League, as the Rams sit second in the Championship with 49 points.

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.

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.


Lingard scored the first goal of the game in the 84th minute with a superb half volley from the edge of the Derby box before Lukaku sealed the encounter with a close range finish after playing a clever one two with Anthony Martial. The 32-year-old stopper had previously denied a Juan Mata free-kick and was having a fine, but busy half. 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.

Meanwhile, Derby manager Gary Rowett makes six changes from the team that drww with Sheffield United in their Championship last time out. BBC Sport's Simon Stone described the decisive moment.

United needed late goals from Jesse Lingard and Romelu Lukaku, to see off Derby County on Friday night.

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.

Carson then made a flying save to keep out a Pogba free kick in the final stages of the first period, which finished goalless.
