League Cup: Chelsea beat Lampard’s Derby

  • Eden Hazard injured his back in Chelsea’s draw with Manchester United

Chelsea legend and Derby boss Frank Lampard has declared Blues' play-maker Eden Hazard as the best in form player in the world at the moment.

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.

The Belgium worldwide, who leads the Premier League scoring charts with seven goals in nine games this season, was not involved in Chelsea's 4-0 win over Burnley on Sunday due to a back injury sustained against Manchester United.

Zola admits Derby pushed them all the way.

Maurizio Sarri sent on David Luiz, who was caught out by the speeding Marriott.

Spurs, who were playing just 48 hours after a loss to Manchester City in the Premier League, are looking to claim a first piece of silverware under Mauricio Pochettino and end what will be an 11-year wait for a trophy.

Perhaps that was everything, but it was hard not to link Chelsea's fluctuating concentration levels with the fact that the focus of Stamford Bridge so often drifted to the visiting dugout. This was not how he had envisaged scoring his first Chelsea goal in front of the Shed End. "If we relax that then we are not the team we want to be".

"I'd argue maybe he is Chelsea's greatest ever player".


Chelsea's record goalscorer was serenaded throughout a night which must have felt all the more surreal because of the way the fourth-round match unfolded.

Chelsea was drawn to play Bournemouth at home in the quarterfinals.

Chelsea: Caballero 6, Zappacosta 7, Cahill 5, Christensen 5, Emerson 6, Kante 6, Fabregas 7, Kovacic 6, Loftus-Cheek 8, Morata 5, Willian 7.

The former England worldwide has called time on his playing career and is now leading Derby towards a promotion push in the EFL Championship.

When the margins are so small at Chelsea right now, individual attributes are key and there's no competing when it comes to goals.

Lewis Wing grabbed the only goal in first-half injury time with a swerving shot from long range.

Frank Lampard looks like he could become a very good manager, but this might be a bridge too far at this point in his career. Two goals from Son Heung-min and a strike from Fernando Llorente gave Tottenham a 3-1 win against West Ham while Championship side Middlesbrough upset Premier league outfit Crystal Palace 1-0. He showed frustration at the goals his team conceded but, true to his word, declined to celebrate the ones they scored, settling instead for a silent, satisfied swig of water. Derby are coming off a 1-1 draw against Tony Pulis's Middlesborough, having been undone by Jayden Bogle's late own goal.
