Derby 5-3 Man Utd, PL2

Battle against relegation hots up as Rams move off bottom of Division 1 with 5-3 win over Man Utd

Just five points seperate the bottom six in Division 1 after Timi Max Elsnik (centre in the photo above) netted twice in Derby County's 5-3 victory over Manchester United at St George's Park.

Callum Gribbin put Man Utd ahead early on, but Alex Babos and Elsnik gave the Rams the advantage at the break before Elsnik (with his second), Kellan Gordon and Emil Riis Jakobsen scored in a five-minute spell to put the match beyond reach at 5-1.

Devonte Redmond and Tosin Kehinde hit late consolations for defending champions Man Utd, who are three points above the relegation zone in eighth place.

Derby, unbeaten in five matches across all competitions, moved off the bottom at the expense of Leicester City, who lost 2-0 to Southampton.
