Numbers game: Derby County (H)

We break down the statistics from City's Sky Bet Championship 1-0 win against Derby County.

Famara Diédhiou came off the bench to score his first goal of the season as City put their Covid-hit preparations behind them to pile more misery on bottom-of-the-table Derby County.

Bar a near-error from David Marshall, City’s chances were limited in a first half against a defensive-minded Rams unit.

Antoine Semenyo proved himself a threat though and after twice being denied by the Derby shotstopper, he notched his sixth assist of the campaign when his cutback found Diédhiou, who fired low into the net in the 78th minute.

The 1-0 win sees City leap to third in the Sky Bet Championship table ahead of a midweek fixture with Watford, live on Sky (November 25th, 7.45pm KO). Dean Holden's men have now won each of their last three games.
