Predicted Derby County line-up to face Norwich City in the Championship

Derby County will look to bounce back to winning ways when they host Norwich City at the Pride Park in the Championship on Wednesday.

Derby endured a disappointing 1-0 loss at Bolton on Saturday after knocking Manchester United out of the EFL Cup on penalties.

The Rams have lacked consistency so far this season, which will certainly be a worry for Lampard who will hope his boys put in a solid performance on Wednesday to get a win over Norwich City at home.

Team News

Tom Lawrence returned to the Derby team after serving his three-game suspension.

Curtis Davies and George Evans still remain out and Marcus Olsson is a long-term casualty.

Probable Derby County XI

Formation: 4-2-3-1

Manager: Frank Lampard

Scott Carson (GK)

Carson is Derby’s undisputed No.1 in goal and he should start the midweek clash with Norwich.

Jayden Bogle (RB)

Bogle continues to impress his manager with solid displays at right-back. He will retain his place in the Derby XI.

Richard Keogh (CB)

Keogh has been really solid in recent weeks for Derby. He is a leader and will look to guide his team to all three points against Norwich.

Fikayo Tomori (CB)

Tomori has been reliable alongside Keogh in central defence. He has shown great maturity for the Rams and deserves to start the midweek game.

Craig Forsyth (LB)

An attacking left-back, Forsyth will look to offer width and supply crosses into the box from the left.

Craig Bryson (CM)

Bryson is a tireless worker in the middle of the park. He brings so much intensity, energy and steel to Derby’s engine room. A definite starter for Wednesday’s Championship game.

Bradley Johnson (CM)

A combative midfielder, Johnson will shield the backline and also offer creativity in the middle of the park. He is a willing runner with and without the ball.

Harry Wilson (RW)

Wilson has been Derby’s in-form man in recent weeks. He will be raring to make a mark against Norwich with a goal or an assist.

Mason Mount (CAM)

Mount is a classy operator of the ball, possess fantastic vision, technique and works really hard for the Rams. He is a certain starter on Wednesday.

Tom Lawrence

Tom Lawrence (LW)

Lawrence will be looking to establish himself back in the team. He could get a start against the Canaries at Pride Park.

Jack Marriott (ST)

Derby would need a bit more pace and directness to carve open the Norwich defence and that’s where Marriott might come handy. With his pace and movement, Marriott could become a thorn for the visiting side in midweek.
