Derby vs Leeds (By: TFB)

Derby County welcome Leeds United to Pride Park as two sides who won their opening fixtures go head to head.

Derby got a 2-1 victory over Reading after a last minute winner by Tom Lawrence. It was 3 points they probably didn't deserve as Reading were the better side for most of the game and even took the lead early in the 2nd half. However, goals from Mason Mount and Tom Lawrence gave Frank Lampard his first competitive win as Derby boss.

Leeds were on home soil against Stoke City, the pre-season favourites for the league title, where they earned an excellent 3-1 win. Like Derby, Leeds have also brought in a new manager, the vastly experienced Marcelo Bielsa who Pep Guardiola has claimed is the best manager in the world after mentoring Guardiola as well as Mauricio Pochettino for many years.

Bielsa has managed on a very high level for many years and if he sticks it out at Elland Road this could be the start of the Leeds United resurgence.
