Derby 0-3 Man United: Red Devils Ease Through Rooney's Side Into FA Cup Quarters
March. 06, 2020
Manchester United sailed through into the FA Cup quarterfinals after easing to a 3-0 win over Derby County on Thursday night.
An Odion Ighalo brace and a Luke Shaw goal were enough for United to book a place in the last eight in a relatively comfortable night in Derbyshire.
Despite United controlling the match in the opening few minutes, it was Derby who got the first real chance of the match, but Louie Sibley's shot crept inches wide of Romero's post.
United's confidence shot up following the goal and came close to adding a second on the 34th minute, but McTominay's effort from the edge of the box was blocked and somehow Derby survived.
Jack Marriot then came close to pulling one back for the Rams, but his effort from the edge of the box following a perfectly weighted Rooney ball was pushed round the post by Romero for a corner.
Romero then denied Rooney a memorable goal as he saved the former Reds' freekick from the edge of the box.
