Carabao Cup 2018-19, Chelsea 3-2 Derby County: 5 Talking Points

Eden Hazard

Substitute David Nugent struck the post in the 89th minute as Derby came close to a third equaliser, but Chelsea survived and progressed to a home quarter-final with Bournemouth.

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.

His side spent long periods of the game without the ball but they competed against the FA Cup holders, who are yet to taste defeat this season.

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.

"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".

"I respect this club, I don't have to talk about this club".

"I'm proud. I'm not upset at all".

It was always going to be about Frank Lampard, one of Chelsea's all-time greats, returning to this part of the capital where he is still revered by many as the greatest goal-scoring midfielder of his generation.

Even with the low-slung design, McLaren engineers have been able to utilise Low-Temperature Radiators to keep things cool. McLaren is particularly keen to highlight the active ailerons attached to the trailing edge of the car's rear-end.

The Spain playmaker won the League Cup with Chelsea in 2015 when a mainstay of Jose Mourinho's first-choice line-up.

A full 21 minutes had passed before the next goal flew in, with a fluffed clearance once again leading a Derby defender, namely Richard Keogh, to put through his own net in embarrassing fashion...

In eerily similar circumstances to the first, the experienced Keogh sliced another right-sided Zappacosta cross past a bewildered Scott Carson.

That's my goal. I want to come back and play for Chelsea, but at this moment I'm at Derby and I'm loving it, so that's where my focus is.

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

Arsenal went 2-0 up against Blackpool after Stephan Lichsteiner stretched out a leg to convert into the far corner and Emile Smith Rowe found the net after Carl Jenkinson's miscued cross came off the crossbar five minutes after the break.

Frank Lampard has said that he is disappointed that his Derby side were knocked out of the Carabao Cup by his former side Chelsea.

However, the Blues shouldn't be taking anything for granted as Lampard has been doing a fine job at Derby with the Rams sixth in the Championship table and they booked their place in the fourth round of the League Cup after beating Manchester United on penalties.
