What an amazing job Steven McClaren has done at Pride Park since taking over from Nigel Pearson who had a torrid start with the Rams this season. The Championship giants are on the back of a 10-game unbeaten streak in the Championship and are just one point behind the final playoff spot.
The Rams had to settle for a 0-0 draw against Wigan Athletic on Saturday which will be frustrating for the fans. A win could have landed them in top six. However, there is still plenty of football to be played and if Derby can keep up their impressive run, they should be able to get a top-six place once again this season.
Derby County will travel to Carrow Road on Monday to take on Norwich City who are struggling at the moment despite starting the season really well. The home side are 12th in the table with 34 points and must come up with a much better showing in the second-half of the season to get a playoff spot.
In the past few seasons, Derby have been a regular in playoffs but it always ended with heartbreaks. McClaren will be keen to put an end to the fans’ frustration this time out. Here is the predicted Derby County lineup against Norwich City.
Predicted 4-3-3 Derby County Lineup Vs Norwich City
Experienced custodian Scott Carson will keep his place under the bar and will be looking to keep his seventh clean sheet in a row. The English international has kept 14 clean sheets this campaign from 25 games which are certainly impressive stats and he will be looking to keep up his good work.
Experienced and versatile defender Chris Baird will start at right-back.
We expect Alex Pearce and Richard Keogh to start at the heart of the defence.
Ikechi Anya will start at left-back to fill in for Marcus Olsson.
