‘Superstar’: Derby fans hail Jack Marriott after Birmingham victory

Jack Marriott continued his remarkable form with another goal in the 3-1 win over Birmingham at the weekend – and some of the Derby County fans on Twitter raved about him for his performance.

The 24-year-old centre-forward scored his sixth goal of the season in all competitions late in the contest to help wrap up three points.

Frank Lampard’s side found themselves a goal down when Lukas Jutkiewicz scored after 10 minutes, but the hosts responded with three goals to keep up their recent form.

Marriott is certainly one of the success stories so far under Lampard and is now a permanent feature in the starting XI, but was eased into action following his summer arrival.

The in-form English attacker has now netted four times in his last five league games, while he’s also scored goals against Manchester United and Chelsea in the Carabao Cup.

There is some serious competition in the Rams squad for a position in the final third, but right now he seems to have possession of the starting spot.

A selection of Derby fans on social media were full of praise for Marriott after his latest outing, with one even comparing him to Atletico Madrid and French sensation Antoine Griezmann.

Here are some of the Derby fan tweets on Marriott:
