Marcelo Bielsa’s players also played terrible in FA Cup and were knocked out by QPR with the 2-1 score.
Derby County have just one win in the previous five fixtures in the Championship, but all of these games were against the leading teams of the league. Over the weekend Frank Lampard’s boys impressed in FA Cup after achieving a 2-2 draw after two goals deficit until the 48th minute of the game. The Rams gained confidence and show character in crucial fixtures which may prove decisive at the end of the season.
The offence of Derby County is in great form, scoring eight goals in the previous four games. The Rams are one of the highest scoring away teams in the league and didn’t miss a chance to score in eight straight visits.
