WATCH: Jesse Lingard scores an absolute screamer to help Man United beat Derby

Yet, again Jesse Lingard came up with the goods for Manchester United on Friday night... A sentence that might have seemed silly to say a year or two ago.

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.

This time, he helped book his team's spot in the fourth round of the FA Cup after scoring a late winner against Derby County - a club at which he'd played for on loan earlier in his career.

As is often the case with Lingard's goals, this one was a screamer. Receiving the ball on the edge of the Derby area, he powered home a right-footed strike beyond Scott Carson, who was absolutely powerless to prevent it.

United had been frustrated earlier in the game, striking the post on a number of occasions and forcing Scott Carson in to making a number of saves.

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