DER Vs MUN Dream11 Team Probable Playing 11 And Match Report: Agonising Derby Country make for timid opponents in today’s FA Cup encounter.
When Derby County go at loggerheads against Manchester United today in the FA Cup, for the side, this is going to be an extremely staunch test. Ever since losing Frank Lampard to Chelsea, things have never been same for the side with the team waning and unravelling form to go on a wayward spiral in the league in the English Championship.
From challenging for a spot in the Premier League last season, the side are now languishing in 13th position in the league. The void left by Lampard has been way too colossal a one for the side to compensate for with the team winning just one of its last five encounters in the league.
However, what will ingrained some kind of momentum in their ranks is that the win came by in their more resent outing in the league, a comprehensive 3-1 trouncing of Sheffield Wednesday. They’ll be looking to garner confidence from that showing and come hot out of the blocks against Manchester United, a team which has itself enduring a tottering time in the Premier League.
DER Vs MUN Probable Winner
Manchester United’s diabolic form this season was once again brought to the fore by Everton in the Premier League. Fortuitous to walk away from the tie with a point after yet another debacle by VAR ended up in their favour, the side epitomised why they have made for such meek opponents this term with that laggard display.
However, Derby Country will hardly unperturbed them with the side having shipped 49 goals this season, a side Manchester United should be able to brush apart without any jitters.

With Derby Country having seen their defensive acumen vanish up in smoke with a colossal 49 goals let in all season, reposing faith in the side’s backline is not something we had the heart for either.

Elsewhere with four goals, the imperious Jason Knight endeared to us from Derby County along with Grame Shinnie for the outing.
