United Romp Past Derby 1-4

United waltzed past Derby and into the quarter-finals where they will travel to either Swansea or Fulham.

Winning has become so routine for Manchester United that the only thing that seemingly interests their manager, Sir Alex Ferguson, now is how they get there. The route he took here was arguably the Scot's most ambitious: playing without any recognised strikers.

So how ominous for United's coming opponents that despite this self-imposed handicap, they still won comfortably. With Wayne Rooney still injured, Dimitar Berbatov was rested and Carlos Tevez restricted to a place on the bench.
