Palace Preview: Rooney’s Derby kick-start Eagles’ FA Cup push

3 January 2020

Crystal Palace are kick-starting their Emirates FA Cup campaign for the 2019/20 season on the back of playing seven games in 28 days with a squad racked by injury.

The Eagles have been forced to field somewhat makeshift lineups in recent weeks and have relied upon Development prospects to ensure they field a full bench. 

Encouragingly, this resulted in 18-year-old Brandon Pierrick making his first-team debut in Palace’s 1-1 draw with Norwich City. In doing so, he became the second-youngest Premier League debutant for the south Londoners.

Any Development players who feature against the Rams will face a Championship side experiencing mixed results of late. Former Barcelona midfielder turned manager Phillip Cocu has led Derby to being unbeaten in three consecutive games, though they’d lost four from six before that.

Derby’s most notable deficiency is their form away from home - currently sitting 22nd in the Championship table for away results and third for home.

On Thursday night, they faced Barnsley in what saw Wayne Rooney make his debut in white. The former England captain was confirmed to have joined the club on New Year’s Day having trained with them since November and assisted Jack Marriott's 45th-minute goal in a 2-1 win against the Tykes.

Rooney, 34, has scored twice against the Eagles in his career and is now with the Rams in a player/coach capacity. One of the coaches Rooney worked with, of course, was Hodgson at England. The pair worked for the national team for four years, during which time Hodgson handed Rooney the captaincy.

The last game between Palace and Derby saw Palace triumph 1-0 in the Championship having overcome the Rams 3-0 in the reverse of the fixture five months before.

Derby’s third-highest scorer this season is forward Chris Martin. Martin scored seven goals from 28 appearances on loan to Palace from Norwich City in 2011/12. He netted his first goal in almost a year against Derby, having last scored against the Rams 363 days earlier.

Team news

Against Norwich, Palace were without: Joel Ward, Patrick van Aanholt, Gary Cahill, Scott Dann, Jeffrey Schlupp, Andros Townsend and Christian Benteke. Mamadou Sakho was substituted at half-time with a hamstring injury. Of those who did play and complete the match, Hodgson said: "there were very few players out there today who you can say were 100% fit."

Derby have been struggling with injuries this season, which is part of the reason they find themselves at the lower end of the Championship table.

Ahead of the Barnsley clash, the Rams are without Graeme Shinnie and Tom Huddlestone (hamstring), Mason Bennett (ankle), Ikechi Anya and George Evans (calf).

Tactical overview

The Rams have typically fielded a 4-2-3-1 formation in recent matches, with Martin often leading the line on his own.

Derby have conceded seven penalties this season. With Palace being known for their ability to collect spot-kicks, the Eagles may find themselves stepping up to strike from 12 yards against the Rams.

Match Reports

Report: 10-man Palace out of the FA Cup

Crystal Palace 0-1 Derby County

5 January 2020

Ten-man Crystal Palace fell 0-1 to Derby County this afternoon as the Eagles lost men to both injury and the referee's hand in a tough match which sees them knocked-out of the Emirates FA Cup.


  • Gary Cahill starts for Palace with five Development prospects in the squad
  • Brandon Pierrick opens the match with an impressive chance
  • Derby take the lead through Chris Martin in the 32nd minute
  • Half-time: Palace 0-1 Derby
  • Palace lose Max Meyer and Jairo Riedewald to injury
  • Luka Milivojevic receives a red card for an altercation with Tom Huddlestone
  • Full-time: Palace 0-1 Derby

Although today’s FA Cup game built-up with the world’s eyes on 34-year-old Wayne Rooney and, for Palace, the start of Gary Cahill, also 34, it was instead 18-year-old Brandon Pierrick who first stole attention as he jinked his way through Derby’s backline.

Shrugging off Craig Forsyth with apparent ease, Pierrick launched a shot out from under himself and tested ‘keeper Kelle Roos with the first effort of the afternoon. Roos blocked the youngster’s attempt and caught the loose, spinning ball, but Palace’s only starting Development player had sent a clear early warning.

After a scrappy half an hour, though, with Palace drawing a handful of fouls around the edge of Derby’s box, the visitors took the lead. Sharp-looking fullback Jayden Bogle sent in a smart cross to former Eagle, Chris Martin, who struck home from close-range to put the Rams in front.

In addition to the goal, Palace were then dealt another cruel injury blow as Max Meyer departed to be replaced by James McArthur 40 minutes in.

Half-time came with little else to comment on after 45 minutes that saw both teams matched fairly evenly. Derby threatened on the break and from the wings and Palace had attempts of their own, with Connor Wickham and James McCarthy missing half-chances before the break.

Palace began the second-half in the same manner they began the first: with a Pierrick run forcing Roos into dramatic - if fairly routine - action. After passing the Derby defence along the painted turf, Pierrick laid-off McCarthy, who chipped a shot goalbound for Roos to palm away mid-flight.

The Eagles appeared dominant as they sought the equaliser and almost capitalised when a neat free-kick routine between Luka Milivojevic and Gary Cahill led to Roos spilling possession at the benefit of Cheikhou Kouyate. With space at the far side of Derby’s box, Kouyate crossed frustratingly high and the south Londoners regrouped to continue their assaults.

Jordan Ayew fed Wickham, who struck wide, and then earned a corner with a deflected shot off Curtis Davies.

But the clearest chance fell to Bogle, who found himself in space and crashing a header into the pitch at the far post. His effort hit the ground and bounced far too high, sailing narrowly past Palace’s goal to the Eagles’ relief.

A difficult afternoon at the heart of a challenging spell went from bad to worse minutes later for the Eagles, when Luka Milivojevic clashed with Tom Huddlestone and received a VAR-assisted red card for his involvement in the altercation.

Forced down to 10-men, Roy Hodgson enacted a tactical change by pushing Kouyate into midfield with James Tomkins lining-up alongside Cahill.

In a twist of fate that bordered on the implausible, Jairo Riedewald was next to leave the field with a physio, replaced by Sam Woods - a defender making his third competitive appearance for the senior team. 

The visitors almost ensured their cup progression as substitute Martyn Waghorn clipped the post with a shot from the edge of the box, but the scoreline was to remain 0-1.

Knocked by Derby's solitary goal, losing their captain and two further players to injury, Crystal Palace could not battle their way back to holding a place in the FA Cup despite a late charge which threatened the Rams with a comeback. Alas, at full-time, the Eagles had to contend with defeat.

Palace: Hennessey, Riedewald (Woods 75), Cahill, Kouyate, Kelly, Meyer (McArthur 39), Milivojevic, McCarthy, Ayew, Wickham, Pierrick (Tomkins 72).

Subs not used: Henderson, Kirby, McGregor, Daly.

Derby: Roos, Forsyth, Lawrence, Davies, Bogle, Sibley (Waghorn 90), Rooney, Huddlestone (Bird 75), Malone, Whittaker (Holmes 72), Martin.

Subs not used: Wisdom, Jozefzoon, Knight, Ravas.
