Manchester United 2-0 Derby County: Reds rewarded for patience in FA Cup clash

Manchester United 2-0 Derby County: Reds rewarded for patience in FA Cup clash

United left it late, but saw off Derby County 2-0 in Friday’s FA Cup clash. José Mourinho pulled no punches in his team selection for Friday’s FA Cup clash between Manchester United and Derby County, though he had to wait 84 minutes before Jesse Lingard broke the deadlock and paved the way for Romelu Lukaku’s stoppage time second. United comfortably controlled the game, but profligate finishing and impressive goalkeeping gave rise a rather nervy affair, ending 2-0. The first half was a tale of missed opportunities for United, largely thanks to Marcus Rashford’s continuing poor...

Everton 0-2 Manchester United: Martial and Lingard screamers secure points for Reds

United’s four game winless run came to an end at Goodison Park. Superb second half strikes from Anthony Martial and Jesse Lingard put an end to Manchester United's four-game winless run on New Year's Day. Everton proved stubborn opponents for José Mourinho’s men, though two moments of individual quality proved the difference in a 2-0 win. The game got off to an extremely cagey start, with hardly a goalscoring chance carved out in a quiet first half. Everton saw plenty of early possession, though gradually relinquished control to the visitors. United’s best opportunity came when a...

Lingard came off the bench to score a brace, including a stoppage time equalizer, to spare United’s blushes.

United 2-0 West Brom: Lukaku and Lingard secure a nervous three points

United 2-0 West Brom: Lukaku and Lingard secure a nervous three points

It wasn’t entirely convincing, but United have slashed the gap at the top of the table to 11 points. Manchester United picked up their 13th win of the season with a performance that was comfortable for 70 minutes, then a chaotic slog for the final 20 or so. Goals from Romelu Lukaku — his 15th of the season — and Jesse Lingard were enough to secure the three points, even though West Brom threatened to ruin Jose Mourinho’s evening. United got off to a slow start, dominating possession but failing to test Ben Foster in the West Brom goal. And then, after 26 minutes, they were ahead,...
