  • Chelsea icon Frank Lampard claims Eden Hazard is better than Lionel Messi

DF Davide Zappacosta, 6 - Provided two assists with unsafe crosses, though it's hard to know how much credit to give him when they both found Derby players.

Derby lost 3-2 and was ultimately undone by two own-goals in the opening 21 minutes - the first of which was scored in the fifth minute by a player on loan from Chelsea, Mikayo Tomori. He was one of the first players I analysed and I said 'this player is for us'.

Lampard scored a club record 211 goals in 648 appearances and 13 years at Chelsea, but left when his contract expired in June 2014 without having the chance to say goodbye.

"I want Eden (back playing) as soon as possible". Few club legends, even others every bit as significant in Chelsea's recent history, have been exposed to the sheer level of love lavished on him in the midst of a competitive setting - a penny for the thoughts of Jose Mourinho - and the very real sense of jeopardy brought by his vibrant and dynamic Derby side sat awkwardly with the gushing tributes.

"Mason Mount played excellent".

"He is certainly much better", Zola told his pre-match media conference on Tuesday ahead of their League Cup clash against Derby County.

The visitors made several changes after losing to Manchester City in the Premier League at Wembley 48 hours earlier but managed to carve out a two-goal lead through South Korean Son.

Redknapp was joined in the studio at Stamford Bridge by former Chelsea striker Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink, who was impressed with the way his former team-mate Lampard set Derby up to give Chelsea problems.

It will not be an easy task however, for the Rams to grab a second Premier League scalp given Chelsea's impressive start to the season under Maurizio Sarri.

"He is looking quite good for the weekend [the home game with Crystal Palace on Sunday]". It was a great opportunity to see them play in front of us and we took the opportunity.

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

5' - OWN-GOAL! Chelsea 1-0 Derby: Well, would you believe it? 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.

Ruben Loftus-Cheek is now enjoying the best goalscoring spell of his career, netting in two consecutive games for the first time.

The Championship side, conquerors of Manchester United in the previous round, provided a properly stern test of Chelsea's undefeated team in a thrilling game and were denied parity - and the possibility of another penalty shootout - only when David Nugent's late shot fizzed beyond Willy Caballero and rebounded back to the goalkeeper off the far post.

"There wasn't a tear in the eye, but it was emotional, " Lampard said.
