The former champions beat Championship side Derby County 2-0 on Friday.

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 this time.

He unleashed a first-time shot from 18 metres in the 83rd minute.

Lingard hit the post several minutes earlier as Derby looked set to earn a reply after United had missed a string of chances.

Marcus Rashford also hit the woodwork while visiting goalkeeper Scott Carson produced a barrage of good saves.
