Frank Lampard confirmed as new manager of Derby

Marcelo Bielsa's Leeds United made it two wins from two matches at the start of their Championship campaign when they overcame Frank Lampard's Derby County with an imperious 4-1 victory on Saturday.

The Rams lost 4-1 to Leeds United to come back down to earth with a bump following the opening day win at Reading eight days earlier, Lampard's men struggling to get a foothold on the game throughout.

The Whites face a test this Saturday away at Derby and Lampard can not help but admit to having been impressed with what he saw at Elland Road, with bags of energy on display from the hosts.

Former England worldwide Lampard won his first game as manager 2-1 against _ thanks to a last-minute victor, but couldn't repeat the trick in his first home game in charge.

The quality of Leeds movement forward caused Derby problems from the start and it was no surprise when Mateusz Klich fired a low shot past Scott Carson in the fifth minute.

Thomas trails Johnson, McIlroy on 2018 PGA Championship odds
Usually by the time the PGA Championship comes around the talk of PGA TOUR Player of the Year is settling into a tight race. We have had four separate winners of the PLAYERS (Webb Simpson), Masters (Patrick Reed), U.S.

From the opening exchanges, it was clear that this game was always going to one that had goals in it. The most disappointing thing for me is we went away from what we are.

"This is my first job as a manager, but I've worked closely with some of the best coaches in the game and I'm confident in my own abilities and those of the team around me, including the board", he told Derby's official website.

"Leeds have come to our place and looked more confident than us.it comes down to the basics of football, if you don't move the ball quickly enough and you're not fearless enough and your quality is not quite good enough then it's hard to get out and we weren't good enough today".

But Bielsa isn't getting carried away and said: "We are very focused. But the Championship is very long and it is not convenient to make conclusions now".

Lampard had raided his former club Chelsea for the services of the promising young defender Fikayo Tomori on loan for the season while Martyn Waghorn, who arrived from Ipswich this week, was given the chance to show what he could bring to the attack.
