After beating Reading in their last game in the Championship, Derby County will turn their attention to the FA Cup when they host last season’s Premier League winners Leicester City in a very anticipated game at the Pride Park Stadium.
The hosts’ form have been up and down since the start of the season. Consistency is the magic word for the new year for Derby if they want to achieve promotion at the end of the season.
The team have collected 7 points from a possible 15 in their last five league games. Their last game in the Championship was against Reading at home where they won 3-2 in a very entertaining game of football.
Derby are currently sitting in the 7th place in the league table with 43 points from 12 wins, 7 draws and 8 losses. They have scored 27 goals and conceded 21 since the start of the season.
Bradley Johnson and Jacob Butterfield are both available again for Derby after completing their suspension against Reading last time out.
Despite the fact that the Premier League title holders have managed to finish their European Champions League group stage at the top, they have been struggling this season in the Premier League. The team have won only one game in their last five league competitions. They have been sitting in the lower half of the table for the majority of the season.
Leicester City have collected 4 points from a possible 15 in their last five league games. Their last match was against Southampton away from home where they lost 3-0.
The Foxes are sitting in the 15th place in the Premier League table with 21 points from 5 wins, 6 draws and 11 losses. They have scored 24 goals and conceded 37 since the start of the season.
