Derby 1 Man Utd 2


After Ole made nine changes at the interval, there was another incident when most of the crowd thought a goal was coming as Andreas Pereira rolled a free-kick to Alex Telles and his shot appeared to have gone in, only to nick off the wall and bounce off the hoardings and behind the net.

The ball was in the back of the net, though, when Shola Shoretire supplied a killer through ball for Pellistri to latch onto, round the keeper and slot home in confident fashion for his maiden goal in the Reds’ first team.

Di’Shon Bernard headed off target before Derby got back into the game, courtesy of Kazim-Richards, who buried a low shot past Lee Grant’s right hand. Kazim-Richards led another raid soon afterwards and passed to Isaac Hutchinson, who flashed his finish just wide.

It was almost 3-1 when Jesse Lingard’s brilliant belter from the edge of the box cannoned off the bar, while Hannibal also had penalty claims waved away as United looked to wrap up the victory. There were few scares at the other end, although Will Fish made one important clearing header.
