Gary Lineker jokingly sends Frank Lampard a message as Derby get hammered

Gary Lineker jokingly sends Frank Lampard a message as Derby get hammered

Lampard's first game in charge of Derby had been less impressive as they scraped a last-gasp victor at Reading.

Leeds regained the lead through Roofe, the striker rising between two Derby defenders to loop a header beyond Carson from Alioski's left-wing cross after the home side had failed to clear their lines.

There was nothing the former England global could do about Roofe's second goal, though, the striker collecting a Klich pass and brilliantly spinning away from two defenders to thunder in a powerful drive that beat Carson at his near post. They outnumbered us in too many areas and that can't happen.

In the aftermath, many social media users had their say about the Rams' below-par display.

"When things get tough you have to stick to your guns, which is what we didn't do".




"I played the same way at Fulham and at Huddersfield; it was very much about high pressing and being on the front foot and that's what Frank wants as well". They moved the ball better, we made mistakes which gave them goals. "I'd rather people take a chance and try and play out in a positive manner than not so great lessons for us today".

Mat Klich put Leeds ahead with a long-range strike in the fifth minute before Tom Lawrence equalised seven minutes later.

The Leeds manager, Marcelo Bielsa, continued to burnish his credentials as one of the best coaches in world football as his team maintained their ideal start to the season by once again brushing aside one of the Championship's fancied teams.

"In the first half, we were a little bit unstable, we had moments of instability so we can point out this aspect as one to correct".

And continuity is the name of the game for Bielsa, who again picks Bailey Peacock-Farrell in goal and goes with a defence of Luke Aylng, Liam Cooper, Gaetano Berardi and Barry Douglas.
