Derby looked really impressive away to Huddersfield in the season-opening game for them, as the side took the double lead thanks to goals from Lawrence in the 22nd and 25th minute.
Despite the fact that they got reduced five minutes later via a penalty kick, they stood really well on the field being satisfied with the lead and making it really difficult to a more favorited opponent to create dangerous chances.
After losing the Premiership ticket in the last finals play-off game to the Villans last season, no doubt that their target is reaching the Premier League this season and they made a perfect and morale-boosting start.
Newly signed goalkeeper Hamer (from Huddersfield) is doubtful for this one, as well as midfielder Holmes. Injured and out are defensive midfielder Thorne, goalkeeper Carson, and defender Wisdom. They brought defensive midfielder Krystian Bielik in last days and the players should make a debut here. They announced the deal for Wayne Rooney earlier this week, but he will come in January – still, showing great ambition.
Swansea had a really good preparation period which finished with a 2:1 victory over Italian Serie A side Atalanta and the team confirmed their good momentum with a 2:1 home victory over Hull last weekend in the first round.
Their guests have taken the lead in the third minute and were a more dangerous side in the first halftime. However, the Swans have shown great face in the second halftime completely outplaying the opponent and have reverted the scoreline within five minutes into the repetition.
Offensive Routledge picked up a knock recently and is doubtful for now. Midfielder Carroll who came back from loan at Aston Villa is injured. winger Peterson should be playing from the start here this time. Offensive Aldo Kalulu came recently on a loan from Basel and might be included in the team here.
— Have been over 2.5 goals scored in 10 of Swansea’s last 12 games in Championship.
After a really great start for Derby away to Huddersfield, I expect them to attack once again with no fear. The Swans looked really well in the previous weeks not needing many chances created in order to score.
Derby remains a slight favorite and might be able to get the victory, but this should be overall very entertaining and offensive football match from both teams, at first this time.
