Lampard proud but aggrieved after Chelsea return

Mason Mount Derby 2018-19

Twice the home side took the lead via own-goals, one each for centre-back pairing Fikayo Tomori (on-loan from Chelsea) and Richard Keogh, only to be pegged back by a plucky Rams side.

But Martyn Waghorn converted from Mason Mount's cross, another star on-loan from Chelsea, before Cesc Fabregas' strike before half-time proved to be the victor.

"Talking to the Chelsea players and some of their staff after the game, they were all praising us and saying how good we were", Lampard said.

Chelsea's game against Derby County can be viewed by United Kingdom residents on Sky Sports Main Event and Sky Sports Football, which are channels 401 and 403 respectively on Sky and channels 501 and 503 respectively for Virgin Media users. The 40-year-old may have made his own fortune here as a player, but he certainly didn't have much on his return as a manager. The Premier League is a different level. This could be the first game of many [for them] at Chelsea.

It was a special night for the manager who returned to Stamford Bridge for the first time tonight as a manager.

Chelsea are without Olivier Giroud, while Eden Hazard is not in the matchday squad due to a back problem.

The Premier League giants moved into the EFL Cup quarter-finals after the tight win at Stamford Bridge on Wednesday.

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).

More news: Too soon to say if shooting was racial attack

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

Coming only a matter of days after Lampard was left fuming after Jayden Bogle scored an equally ridiculous own-goal, this Tomori one will take some beating. But now they have gone out and they can concentrate on the Championship, which is what is so important now.

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.

Ruben Loftus-Cheek, another player Southgate was watching, tumbled over the advertising hoardings after a shoulder-to-shoulder with Scott Malone and that might have subconsciously influenced referee Jon Moss in not awarding Derby a free-kick when Zappacosta and Tom Lawrence had a similar physical challenge on the touchline.

Key Stat: Chelsea (31) and Derby (30) have combined to score 61 goals in all competitions this season.
