Lampard to make 2 key changes – Strongest 4-3-3 Derby County XI to face Rotherham in the Championship


Predicted Derby County line-up to face Rotherham in the Championship

Derby County resume their Championship campaign after the international break with a trip to the New York Stadium to face Rotherham.

Frank Lampard’s Rams went into the first international break of the season on a high and will be eyeing a fifth successive win in all competitions when they take on Rotherham this weekend.

Rotherham, meanwhile, are 15th on the table after collecting six points from their opening six fixtures following the promotion back to the Championship.

Team News

George Evans remains sidelined with a knee injury. Curtis Davies has not played since Derby’s opening game but isn’t a long way from returning to the squad.

Joe Ledley missed the Hull game before the international break with an ankle and hip problem, while Jayden Bogle remains out with an ankle injury.

Probable Derby County XI

Formation: 4-3-3

Manager: Frank Lampard

Scott Carson (GK)

Carson has been a reliable presence in goal for the Rams and he should receive a start against Rotherham.

Andre Wisdom (RB)

Wisdom has done well since replacing the young Jayden Bogle at right-back. He is expected to get a free run at right-back unless Bogle returns.

Richard Keogh (CB)

A reliable and powerful presence at the back, Keogh is a definite starter for the Rotherham clash.

Fikayo Tomori (CB)

Tomori continues to impress at the heart of the defence in the absence of Davies and he must put up a strong display on Saturday.

Scott Malone (LB)

Malone has performed very well since returning from injury. He is expected to continue at left-back.

Tom Huddlestone (CDM)

Huddlestone is a seasoned campaigner and his presence at the base of the midfield would allow his teammates to express themselves without any restrictions.

Tom Huddlestone

Craig Bryson (RCM)

Bryson is an energetic presence in the midfield and can distribute the ball well. The only thing he needs to add to his game is goals.

Mason Mount (LCM)

Mount has featured heavily under Lampard due to the England Under-21 international’s consistent displays. He can control the midfield quite effectively and he will be a key player for the Rams this weekend.

Florian Jozefzoon (RW)

Jozefzoon has provided flair and pace to Derby’s attack in the last few games. Due to his solid displays lately, he could be rewarded with another start in the Championship.

Tom Lawrence

Tom Lawrence (LW)

Lawrence continues to impress for the Rams and he will play a major role in breaking down a rigid Rotherham defence.

Martyn Waghorn (ST)

Martyn Waghorn has perhaps been the best of summer signings as far as the attackers are concerned. He is a clinical striker and deserves to start at Rotherham.
