Crystal Palace vs Derby: Match preview

Crystal Palace and Derby County are set to go head-to-head in an FA Cup 3rd round clash on Sunday the 5th of January.

Both sides are entering this year’s competition in the 3rd round.

Crystal Palace have never lifted the FA Cup but they have been runners-up twice in their history, the latest time being in the 2015/16 campaign when they lost out to Manchester United in the final by two goals to one.

Derby, on the other hand, have lifted the cup once all the way back in 1946.

Heading into the tie it is probably Crystal Palace who are boasting the better form out of the two sides.

The Eagles are having a fairly successful 2019/20 Premier League campaign.

Roy Hodgson’s side have spent much of the campaign around the middle of the table but a string of wins could see them push up into a Europa League spot.

But while Palace are in pretty decent form this season, Derby County are languishing at the wrong end of the Championship.

Frank Lampard would guide the Rams to the Championship play-off final last season.

However, since Lampard made the return to Chelsea, Derby’s form has nosedived and it is hard to see them getting anywhere close to the play-offs this term.

Crystal Palace vs Derby: Head to head

The last time these two outfits faced off was all the way back in 2013. Crystal Palace beat Derby 1-0 in a Championship clash in March of that year.

In total, Palace and Derby have gone head-to-head 67 times across all competitions.

It is Derby who come out on top in the head-to-head stats with the Championship outfit boasting 30 victories over the Eagles.

Palace have beaten Derby 20 times throughout their history with the remaining 17 ties ending as draws.
