Liverpool,Manchester United move into fourth round : FA Cup

JOSE MOURINHO insists he is desperate to add to his solitary FA Cup Final success with Manchester United this season and, thanks to Jesse Lingard, he moved one round closer to that aim against in-form Championship side Derby.Goals from Jesse Lingard and Romelu Lukaku helped Manchester United ease past Derby County in the third round of the FA Cup on Friday,

Lingard scored his fourth in as many games while substitute Lukaku hit the back of the net at stoppage time at Old Trafford to take United to the fourth round.

Lingard, who scored a pair of fine goals in a 2-2 Premier League draw with Burnley followed by another in a 2-0 win at Everton, produced another exquisite finish as he unleashed a first-time shot from 18 metres in the 83rd minute.
Those visiting fans were briefly inspired when the Rams launched a promising counter-attack for the first time, Tom Lawrence feeding Sam Winnall who had to be halted by an excellent Chris Smalling tackle.

But the game soon settled back into a pattern of United domination with Rashford clearing the bar from 30 yards and then, far more wastefully, from a dozen after he bulldozed his way through Alex Pearce’s challenge.

Mata came close with an excellent free-kick, from the edge of the area, that forced Scott Carson into the game’s first meaningful save as he soared to paw it away with both hands.

That close call prompted Derby into an immediate response with Johnny Russell’s cross picking out Marcus Olsson who crouched to guide a clever header goalwards only for Sergio Romero to make an excellent save as he tipped over the United bar."Playing at Anfield for Liverpool is a dream for every player. To score a goal is even more special."

Earlier, after a frenetic start, Liverpool had taken the lead through a 35th minute penalty from James Milner after Everton defender Mason Holgate had pulled down Adam Lallana in the box.

But, Liverpool looked to have been frustrated after Gylfi Sigurdsson brought Everton level in the 67th minute after a brilliant counter-attack from Sam Allardyce's side.

But the Dutchman had other ideas.

The third round continues across Saturday, Sunday and Monday.
