Chelsea coach Gianfranco Zola slams TWO defenders after Carabao Cup scare

Mason Mount Derby 2018-19

He was as good as his word in that sense but he certainly lived every moment; a nervous ball of energy on the sideline, wincing at Tomori's own goal, suppressing a fist pump as Marriott saved his blushes shortly after and wincing once again as captain Richard Keogh shunted a replica of Tomori's error past Scott Carson.

"Talking to the Chelsea players and some of their staff after the game, they were all praising us and saying how good we were", Lampard said after the game.

"Walking out at Stamford Bridge will be very special for me", admitted Lampard, who played alongside Hazard for two years at Stamford Bridge, before ending his 13 years stay at Chelsea in 2014. It was a great opportunity to see them play in front of us and we took the opportunity.

After several frights, Maurizio Sarri tweaked his defence, bringing on David Luiz and dropping deeper which saw the home side eventually grind out the win - to make it 15 unbeaten games in a row.

As former Chelsea and Leicester manager Claudio Ranieri looked on from the stands, there was a minute's applause before kick-off in tribute to Leicester's late Thai owner Vichai Srivaddhanaprabha, killed in a helicopter crash on Saturday. The Premier League is a different level.

Chelsea have put a lot of emphasis on being successful in all competitions this season, including the Carabao Cup.

On Tuesday, Burton Albion and Bournemouth booked their places in the quarter-finals while Premier League leaders Manchester City play Fulham on Thursday.

Controversy surrounded what turned out to be the winning goal for Chelsea.

Ruben Loftus-Cheek is now enjoying the best goalscoring spell of his career, netting in two consecutive games for the first time. But now they have gone out and they can concentrate on the Championship, which is what is so important now.

MF Cesc Fabregas 6 - His long-range passing was off and he was caught out for Derby's first goal, but timed a run into the penalty area perfectly to score Chelsea's crucial third goal with their first shot on target.

The 27-year-old was forced to sit out Chelsea FC's 3-1 victory over BATE Borisov in their Europa League clash in west London as Ruben Loftus-Cheek netted his first hat-trick for the club.

Derby levelled swiftly as Tom Huddlestone pounced on Gary Cahill's pass to win the ball off Fabregas and fed Marriott to his left.
