Manchester United overcome Derby County in FA Cup

Chris Smalling stepped off the team coach he will hope to be involved in the game

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

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

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.

When you look at the name Jesse Lingard on the Manchester United roster, next to guys like Zlatan Ibrahimovic, Paul Pogba and Romelu Lukaku, he's just an afterthought.

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

Marcos Rojo and Anthony Martial dropped to the bench with strong 2015-16 duo Chris Smalling and Daley Blind the preferred centre-backs and Marcus Rashford leading the line. But it was new boy Virgil van Dijk that got the final word, heading in the victor with few minutes left.

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.

Rashford headed against the Derby post in the 34th minute, before heading straight at Carson three minutes later as the score somehow stayed goalless.

On the other hand, the Rams are now unbeaten in their last seven matches and are second in the Championship with a fine shot of getting a chance to coming back to the Premier League.

Rashford hit the left side of post with a right-footed shot in the 70th minute from the right side of the box after neatly inter-changing passes with Lingard.

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.

Lukaku was next to head wide on 55 minutes, before Thomas Lawrence forced a diving save from Romero.
