Frank Lampard left frustrated on Stamford Bridge return

Speaking about the announcement, Zola told the assembled press: "I can tell you it's not that (Lampard)".

"A lot is down to them, they really played well, they surprised us".

On his part, Chelsea assistant manager Gianfranco Zola, who also doubles as club legend applauded the Championship side insisting they were no easy opponents to face.

Derby put in an excellent display at Stamford Bridge, twice battling back from a goal behind in the first half before Cesc Fabregas grabbed what turned out to be the victor just before half-time.

Tomori's own goal after just five minutes - which deflected backwards off his standing leg as he attempted to clear Davide Zappacosta's cross - was greeted with encouragement from Lampard, who gestured to remain calm.

27' - GOAL! Chelsea 2-2 Derby: They have only gone and equalised again!

"In the first half we had opportunities to take the lead, myself included, and in the second half, late on, we dug in, hit the post and goes back into the goalkeeper's hands and Jack's had a couple of chances".

Furthermore, the English midfielder has managed four goals in those two games, including a hat-trick against BATE at Stamford Bridge last week. It shows testament to the boys on where we are as a team and as a group of lads.

Perhaps it's her start as a struggling American actress. "It's traditionally used for teething.baby can gnaw on it", she said. Prince Harry echoed those sentiments and also stressed the importance of mental health awareness.

The mental test would be hardest, Lampard had warned, for Mason Mount and Fikayo Tomori, the two Chelsea loanees unusually granted permission to play against their parent club at Stamford Bridge.

Frank Lampard revealed Chelsea's players and members of Maurizio Sarri's coaching staff were full of praise for his Derby County side.

"I sort of slipped out the back door when I left".

But, thankfully, the draw for the quarter-finals will occur directly following Chelsea's game against Derby County on Sky Sports, live from Stamford Bridge.

"I've got nothing but great memories and to come back here and be treated like that, I'm a lucky man".

Chelsea have won 11 of their past 12 home League Cup games against sides from outside of the Premier League, drawing the other 1-1 with Burnley in November 2008 before being eliminated on penalties. Unlucky Tomori. If you've watched him play a few times, you'd know he is better than Christensen. Derby assistant Jody Morris, victor of seven trophies in two seasons in charge of the Blues' under-18 and under-19 sides before leaving to team up with Lampard, also got his moment of appreciation at the final whistle.

DF Gary Cahill, 5 - His relative lack of comfort in possession and mobility are the main reasons why he has spent so much time on the bench this season, and Derby targeted the limitations in his game with their fast attack.
