  • EPL: Mourinho gives injury updates on Lukaku, Fellaini, Valencia, Carrick

A sentence that might have seemed silly to say a year or two ago.

United got its first win in five matches on Monday by notching two second-half goals to get a 2-0 win at Everton.

Jesse Lingard continued his superb recent scoring run by netting another fabulous effort in Manchester United's 2-0 FA Cup third round victory over Derby at Old Trafford.

England midfielder Lingard let fly from outside the area with six minutes remaining for his fifth goal in his past six outings to finally break the resistance of the spirited Rams.

Scott Carson, Tom Huddlestone and Andreas Weimann also start, while Matej Vydra is on the substitute bench with David Nugent.

After Lingard's goal, Lukaku added a second to make absolutely sure of the win.

Scott Carson pulled off another save to deny Jesse Lingard from the edge of the area before Paul Pogba trickled an very bad effort wide on the rebound.

Romelu Lukaku, who had replaced Mkhitaryan at the break, then had his goal-bound shot blocked as Pogba curled off target in a good spell of attacking intent from United.

Manchester United (4-3-3): Romero; Lindelof, Jones, Rojo, Blind; Herrera, Matic, Pogba; Lingard, Rashford, Mata.

Pogba then had a golden chance in the 77th minute after the ball fell for the Frenchman inside the Derby box, but he scuffed his effort wide, and it did appear that the tie was heading for a replay.

United also got good news regarding Romelu Lukaku, as the Belgian worldwide will be fit and available to play after suffering a scary blow to the head against Southampton on December 30.

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.
