Jesse Lingard Scores Yet Another Screamer In United's 3rd Round Win

The 25-year-old was named United's player of the month for December, and scored the second goal for them in the 2-0 victory at Everton on New Year's Day.

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.

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

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

There would also be no shock if that turns out to be Mkhitaryan's final stand, another lacklustre showing.

"But when you get past 80 minutes and the goal hasn't come, you fear the second match".

Meanwhile, Rowett responded to Mourinho's changes by finally bringing Vydra on with 23 minutes remaining.

Jesse Lingard Scores Yet Another Screamer In United's 3rd Round Win

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.

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.

Pogba dominated the midfield in the early stages and he teed up Lingard to fire over the top from 10 yards in just the third minute.

The ball went astray outside the left side of the area and who else but Jesse Lingard was there to pull off an unbelievable first-time strike to bend the ball away from the 'keeper and into the top right corner - Carson was brilliant on the night but there was no stopping that.

Derby Team to play Manchester United: Carson; Wisdom, Keogh, Pearce, Olsson; Thorne, Huddlestone; Weimann, Russell, Lawrence; Winnall.

Rashford's finishing let the hosts' approach play down, though, when the striker skied over the bar after being played through.
