Cesc Fàbregas victor lifts Chelsea to deny Frank Lampard’s Derby

Cesc Fàbregas victor lifts Chelsea to deny Frank Lampard’s Derby

Chelsea assistant and Lampard's former team-mate Zola was frustrated with the Blues' defensive efforts, but did concede that much of that was down to Derby's play.

The lead was short lived as Mount laid on Martyn Waghorn's leveller after 27 minutes before Fabregas' victor.

A quieter second half eventually livened up, with substitute Nugent turning the last of three Derby openings into the base of the far post, forcing Lampard to settle for the consolation of receiving the adulation of the supporters, who consistently sung his name.

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.

"I just hope and pray that they can go there and I think as well it's an opportunity for Chelsea to look at their two players under their own lights and see how they are getting on against top, top opposition".

Chelsea have been drawn at home to Bournemouth in a repeat of last season's quarter-final.

On-loan Chelsea defender Fikayo Tomori missed his attempted clearance and watched in Halloween night horror as the ball ricocheted off his standing leg and deflected into the net to put the hosts ahead after five minutes.

Despite the defeat that knocked them out of the competition, Lampard and his Derby County side can keep their head up high and brimming with pride as they put in a performance that was the ideal testament to their ambition under the new manager.




"They've got players who showed they'll be more than capable of holding their own if they come up to the Premier League".

Derby threatened in the second half and nearly scored a third equaliser when David Nugent hit the post late on.

Chelsea are through, Mount and Tomori got some valuable big-game experience, and Stamford Bridge got to pay tribute to perhaps the club's biggest legend without the night being tainted by an upset defeat (just about).

Lampard played 648 times for Chelsea in 13 years at Stamford Bridge and is the club's all-time leading goalscorer.

And, although he has fallen behind Jorginho in Maurizio Sarri's pecking order, Fabregas wants to take his chances when he gets them, including in the League Cup. "That's the complaint. But we'll go through this".

The Belgium worldwide came off the bench at Anfield in the previous round to score a wonder goal and set up the tie with the Rams, but he will not be repeating those heroics. "Not sure today, maybe tomorrow he's going to join us in training".

Lampard said: "The third goal was a foul".

Pulis managed Palace for eight months in the 2013-14 season, helping keep the team in the Premier League.
