Derby County vs Man United highlights

Manchester United were always favourites to win the game, considering the Rams have struggled in the Championship. The home team started well but failed to assert their dominance as United scored the opening just past the half-hour mark. Defender Luke Shaw did well to send his shot bouncing off the turf to beat Derby goalkeeper Kelle Roos.

Minutes later, Shaw turned provider as he found Odion Ighalo inside the box. The striker showed great strength to keep the defenders at bay before poking the ball past Roos. Wayne Rooney could have gotten himself a goal against United after he forced a fingertip save from Sergio Romero from a freekick. Ighalo scored his second of the match in the 70th minute after he found the net with a left-footed shot off a rebound. The match ended at 3-0 to Manchester United.
