Frank Lampard suffered his first competitive defeat as Derby County manager on Saturday evening, as Leeds United hammered them at the Pride Park Stadium.

Derby won 2-1 against Reading away from home in the Championship last weekend, and on Saturday evening, the Rams were demolished 4-1 by Leeds at home.

The West Yorkshire outfit were the better side from start to finish, and there was no doubt that the Rams did not deserve anything from the match.

 

Chelsea legend Lampard was appointed the Derby manager in the summer - his first senior managerial job.

It must have been bitterly disappointing for the former England international midfielder to suffer such a heavy defeat in front of the home matches.

Managers do tend to get sacked quite frequently in the Premier League and in the Championship, especially at ambitious clubs, and Derby are aiming for a playoff spot.
