hmmm... vs Derby. Time to score BIG again!

Liverpool are on course to complete a fourth Premier League double over Derby, having outclassed them with a devastating display of fire-power in the 6-0 thrashing at Anfield in September, a victory that shot the Merseysiders to the top of the table for the first time in five years. The Reds also did the double when they last met the Rams in 2001-02.
Derby have not enjoyed victory over Liverpool since Jim Smith's side prevailed 3-2 at Pride Park on 13 March 1999 with the aid of a Paulo Wanchope double.
Derby are desperate for points, with a six-point gap separating them from second-bottom Wigan.
But Rams boss Paul Jewell has adopted a realistic attitude ahead of the visit of a Liverpool side who thrashed them 6-0 earlier in the season.
"If Liverpool play well then they will beat us - but if they don't play well and we do, then we've a chance," he said.
"Let's have it right, none of our players would get into their team, whatever team they play, and every one of theirs would get into our team.
"So we're up against it, but we're not going into the game just to lie down and expecting them to beat us, we want to try to win the game."
