Tom Lawrence scores brilliant double to give Phillip Cocu's Derby-winning start at Huddersfield

For Derby, Monday was a tale of two Manchester United old boys who often wear the No 10 shirt and share a penchant for the spectacular. While County makes an audacious attempt to bring in Wayne Rooney as a player-coach, Tom Lawrence, who began his career at Old Trafford, scored a three-minute brace worthy of United’s record goalscorer. He gave Derby a winning start under new manager Phillip Cocu. Yet while they rebounded from the disappointments of play-off final defeat and Frank Lampard’s departure for Chelsea, it meant a change of division did not bring a change in fortunes for Huddersfield.

Manager Jan Siewert, beaten for the 13th time in his 16-game reign, lamented: “We made it too easy for Lawrence to score. They took advantage of our mistakes.” If the former Bournemouth captain Tommy Elphick was signed to provide a cool head at the back, the center-back instead cost his new team a goal with his chest. The debutant tried to find Kamil Grabara but got his angles wrong. The goalkeeper had to come out of his box and, under pressure from Martyn Waghorn, could only head the ball to Lawrence. He directed a delightful lob over the Liverpool loanee and into the empty net.

Lawrence’s second goal was similarly sublime. He executed a deft turn on the edge of the box and picked out the corner of the net with precision.
