What to expect from the Derby and the game’s biggest games

The derby at Derby County was a good game, but there was more to come.

The first half was the biggest and best of the day, as the likes of Josh Onomah and Harry Kane struck for the hosts. 

Kane scored twice and Kane’s first goal in the top flight since his debut against Chelsea in the 3-1 win over Everton on August 12, was a brilliant chance. 

There was more quality to come from the second half. 

Hays and Meeks were lively for Derby, as was Adam Clayton. 

However, the best player was not even in the game as Onomahs superb header deflected by Luke Cowan in the box. 

The winner was Saido Berahino who headed home a great strike for the home side. 

With Derby back in the red zone, Klay Thompson scored for Middlesbrough, while Troy Deeney and Luke Murphy both hit the woodwork. 

For Manchester United, Luke Shaw made his Derby debut, while Jack Byrne and Marcus Rashford joined the club on loan. 

Ahead of the trip to the Etihad Stadium, Darren Fletcher made his debut for United, while Jamie Vardy returned to the squad for the first time since January.

United will look to keep the momentum going, and they should be a little more organised. 

In the last game of the season, they were in great form and they should have gone in front in the 90th minute when Kevin De Bruyne went down with a knee injury. 

But it was Derby who ended it, as Kieran Dowell was sent off for a second yellow card. 

It was the most dangerous Derby team to date, as they had the better of the two sides. 

What are the biggest game highlights from the day?

The only game on the Premier League calendar was the Derby derby at the Etampark, where United’s players were looking for revenge against Derby for their first defeat in six games. 

While the game was played on Sunday, it was a crucial night for United as they looked to avoid relegation, but the first team’s form dropped off in the second leg. 

Boro won the game 1-0 and it was the home team’s first away win in 10 matches. 

They will have a good chance to stay up, but United have to take care of business against Everton at the Lane.
