During the 2000–01 English football season, Derby County competed in the FA Premier League (known as the FA Carling Premiership for sponsorship reasons).

Season summary[edit]

Derby's season started with one defeat and four draws in their first five games during which they scored 11 goals. However, the goals soon dried up and overall, another season of struggle plagued Pride Park, but Jim Smith's men were saved with one week of the season left after a shock 1-0 win over champions Manchester United at Old Trafford[1] as well as Manchester City losing their penultimate game of the season at Ipswich Town. The attention was then quickly focused on improving the squad for 2001-02 in a bid to prevent another relegation battle.
