Frank Lampard’s Derby Puts Up Valiant Effort but Chelsea Win 3-2

Frank Lampard’s Derby Puts Up Valiant Effort but Chelsea Win 3-2

I'm not sure today, maybe tomorrow he is going to join us in training.' The Chelsea official website quotes us as saying.

Fikayo Tomori and then Richard Keogh both put through their own net, but Derby twice bounced back with goals from Jack Marriott and Martyn Waghorn, and they even had good chances late on to take the game to penalties.

The result meant that Chelsea will now face Bournemouth in the quarterfinal of the Carabao Cup while Derby's impressive run in the competition came to an end despite all the positives that were brought to light during the game.

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

"It happens. If he hadn't touched that ball, [Alvaro] Morata would have scored a goal".

"It was a good occasion for me on a personal note but what the players did on the pitch, it was outstanding".

Son Heung-min burst out of a 19-game goal drought to help Tottenham into the English League Cup quarterfinals on Wednesday (Thursday NZ time), while a pair of early own-goals ruined Frank Lampard's return to former club Chelsea. "I thought his character was huge". "I'm so proud of my Derby County players".

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.

It was Lampard's first return to Stamford Bridge as an opposing manager in an emotional night for the former England midfielder.

We are predicting that the Blues team to face Derby will be one that is nearly unrecognisable from the one that battered Burnley 4-0 on Sunday. Tom Lawrence was appeared to be fouled, however, play continued and Cesc Fabregas fired home to put Chelsea ahead. His forward runs were just as unsafe to Chelsea as to the opponents; both visiting goals came from the space vacated on his flank.

Not only does he wear the same No 8 shirt as Lampard did in his storied career here, but Mount embodies the two qualities his manager has spoken of demanding from his players: being "brave" on the ball and displaying great "desire".

The size of the challenge to beat Chelsea was huge for Derby, with no win here since 1983 and no clean sheet since Peter Shilton's blank in 1987.

The Belgian forward has also won two League Cups, the FA Cup and the Europa League during his six-season stint at Stamford Bridge following a move from Lille in 2012. "So we didn't have control of the game".

Interestingly, now Derby manager Lampard scored four goals that day, but will be hoping for less of the same come Wednesday - though goals are a guarantee.
