FA Cup highlights: Watch goals from Liverpool vs Everton and Manchester United vs Derby County

Manchester United also left it late to qualify for the fourth round, with in-form midfielder Jesse Lingard and striker Romelu Lukaku scoring in the final six minutes of regulation time in a 2-0 victory over second-tier Derby County at Old Trafford.

For most of 90 minutes, every eye at Anfield was trained on Virgil van Dijk.

Liverpool: Virgil van Dijk scored a dramatic late victor on his debut as Liverpool clinched a 2-1 victory over Everton in a heated Merseyside derby FA Cup tie at Anfield.

There's a simple explanation as to why the New Orleans Saints twice humbled the Carolina Panthers during the regular season. The 6-foot-7, 316-pound Peat was the Saints' first-round draft pick in 2015 out of Stanford, where he played left tackle.

Signed last week for $100 million as the world's most expensive defender, Van Dijk probably couldn't have dreamed of a better debut, with his goal coming in front of the storied Kop stand at Anfield in the 84th minute.

Everton barely threatened in the first half but was much more unsafe after the break, equalizing through Gylfi Sigurdsson after a counterattack following a Liverpool corner.

Van Dijk was constantly being harassed by the likes of Dominic Calvert-Lewin, Wayne Rooney, Yannick Bolasie, and/or Gylfi Sigurdsson when he would go up to win headers in Liverpool's defensive third, but used his strength and clever body positioning to his advantage, sticking to his task well.

With the way Van Dijk performed just days after being officially announced as a Liverpool player, the future looks bright and suggests that Klopp and his staff have a very clear mindset with the players they want to bring in to their system and how they can best utlitzie them. I am really happy.
