The Red Devils had more options up front, but their best chances were still falling to Rashford, who squandered a pair of opportunities after being put through by Pogba and Lingard, respectively.

Late goals from Jesse Lingard and Romelu Lukaku earned the 2-0 win.

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. Pogba was the one making things happen down the left, and the Frenchman just missed the crossbar with a rasping strike in the eighth minute as the home side continued to press early on.

Sergio Romero tipped over a 22nd minute Marcus Olsson header before Henrikh Mkhitaryan gifted possession to Derby.

More crosses were massively evading their targets, and he sent the opposition on a counter-attack with a disastrous pass backwards eventually finding it's way to Sam Winnall on the edge of the area - luckily for Mkhitaryan, his shot was skewed well wide.

Rashford thought he had found the breakthrough in the 37th minute with a header from the centre of the box but goalkeeper Scott Carson was equal to the task and kept his side in the match.

"We stuck at it and rode one or two moments of luck and started to get ourselves into the game".

Derby grew in confidence and Tom Lawrence was next to force another save from Romero.

Tom Lawrence almost sent Derby ahead two minutes before the hour with a thumping shot from just outside the box but Sergio Romero made a brilliant save at the bottom corner. He scored a late victor with a rocket shot to the upper corner for his eighth goal in his last 10 appearances and fourth goal in as many games.

Not to be outdone, Lukaku then played a good give-and-go with Anthony Martial before tucking his shot under the advancing Carson to secure United's passage to the FA Cup fourth round.
