Richard Keogh may have been Derby County’s eventual hero, after taking the winning penalty to help them beat Manchester United, but his performance over the 90 minutes still drew criticism.

Keogh is not the most popular player at Pride Park, with the centre-back usually getting a lot of criticism.

 

And he got away with a few nervy moments at Old Trafford, as Derby pulled off a brilliant upset.

The centre-back’s performance was heavily criticised on social media, although Rams fans are unlikely to care about how he played this morning.

Derby were simply brilliant last night, as they caused a huge upset to knock out Jose Mourinho’s side.

Frank Lampard’s side did not just sit back and defend at Old Trafford, but they played with their usual style and fluency and created plenty of problems.

Derby scored their goals through a belting free-kick from Harry Wilson and a close-range header from Jack Marriott, before going on to win the tie on penalties.
