Meet the opposition

Former England international midfielder Frank Lampard was appointed as Derby County’s new manager in May this year, and since then his team have knocked Jose Mourinho’s Manchester United side out of the Carabao Cup beating them 8-7 on penalties following a 2-2 draw.

Despite winning the same about of games as Norwich City so far this season, Derby’s recent form is a little different to the Canaries who have won all of their last four Championship games. Derby lost 1-0 in their most recent encounter away to Bolton Wanderers on Saturday, and before that won 3-1 against Brentford, drew 0-0 with Blackburn and lost 1-0 to Rotherham.

The 2017/18 campaign saw the Rams finish in sixth place in the Championship table and reach the end-of-season play-offs for the third time in five seasons, but were unable to progress beyond the semi-final stage after losing 2-1 on aggregate to Fulham.

The last time the Canaries visited Derby was February 2018, when a James Maddison second-half penalty helped Norwich fight back to earn a 1-1 draw.
