CB: Fikayo Tomori-7. The tall defender played on the front foot and did the best out of the Derby backline. Used his height advantages to win his fair share of headers up against Roofe.

CM: Mason Mount-6. The Chelsea loanee couldn't really get on the ball and struggled to make an impact. The closest he came was a speculative effort from 35 yards deep into added time.

CM: Bradley Johnson-6. Up against his old club the holding midfielder looked to break up play and link defence and attack. Produced some tidy passing but overall, he had a fairly quiet afternoon.

CM: Duane Holmes-8. Full of energy in the Derby midfield and caused Leeds a few problems when running at them with the ball at his feet. Replaced by Mason Bennett in the 70th minute.
