Arguably, Middlesbrough and Derby County are the two of the best sides in the Sky Bet Championship.
Both sides have been out of the top flight for more than five years, and will be looking to gain promotion back to the Premier League this season.
Last season, Derby were disappointed to narrowly miss out on the Play-Off’s on the last day of the season, finishing eighth.
On the other hand, Boro were more successful, finishing fourth. However, the Teeside outfit narrowly missed out on promotion in the Play-Off final.
Undoubtedly, both sides have very talented players, with millions of pounds being spent on both squads. The question is, which side has the better player in each position?
