Leeds will take on Derby today at Pride Park, with the breathless predictions of how Frank Lampard’s Derby County will face off against Marcelo Bielsa’s Leeds United, as if there isn’t going to be 22 players kicking the ball around on the pitch that will actually determine the outcome of the match instead.

You might have heard that Frank Lampard is now in charge of Derby County, and they won for the first time under Frank Lampard last week in the opening fixture of the Championship. Derby, who is managed by Frank Lampard, beat Reading FC thanks to a stoppage time goal from Tom Lawrence.
The problem with winning that opening game so dominantly is that we are now all nervous that we can't keep it going. It is last season's side pretty much after all. If we can tho, it's going to be some ride! #lufc Have a great trip everyone and hope to see some of you in Derby!— David Watkins (@DaveLUFCWatkins) August 11, 2018
Leeds, however, won in more convincing fashion over Stoke City last weekend, in what seemed an impossible display from the same team that limped it’s way to a 13th place finish. Perhaps a change of managers is exactly what Leeds needed, as the team had a dismal run of form under Paul Heckingbottom, losing eight of their last 16 matches last season and winning only four.

If Roofe starts then that's fair as he played well last match. Only expect one change.
Phillips probably more DM than CB today.
Leeds will almost certainly line-up in a very similar lineup to last week, after such a dominating performance. Derby’s lineup will also not change very much.
Anyway, here’s hoping that Bielsa can find a way to pick up his first road win in the Championship over Frank Lampard’s Derby County.
