Ighalo double leads Man United into quarter-finals

Manchester United cruised through to the sixth round of the FA Cup with a 3-0 victory over Derby County at Pride Park. The home side started well, with Louie Sibley going close and United legend Wayne Rooney forcing an excellent save from Sergio Romero from a free kick. United then took command before half-time with goals from Luke Shaw and Odion Ighalo in quick succession giving them a comfortable lead. United’s asserted their superiority further in the second half, dominating play and sealing the game when Ighalo thumped a rebound of his own shot into the roof of the net. Derby carved out a few chances of their own, with some nice touches of class from Rooney to set things in motion but could not finish with the same precision. The victory secured Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s team a place in the quarter-finals, where they will face Norwich at Carrow Road on the weekend of 21/22 March.
