Eden Hazard on course for Chelsea return vs. Crystal Palace

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

Tomori and Richard Keogh scored own goals for Derby, who fought back on both occasions through Jack Marriott and Martyn Waghorn, before Cesc Fabregas' 41st-minute strike proved to be the victor.

Nevertheless, of the two, it is Mount who can be more pleased with his performance, leaving Stamford Bridge with an assist - a wonderfully weighted cross for Martyn Waghorn to score Derby's second - and several knowing nods of approval from the home faithful as he twisted and turned away from pressure and fizzed the ball left and right from his advanced spot in midfield.

The Rams stunned Premier League side Manchester United at Old Trafford in the third round, having already overcome Oldham Athletic and Hull City, while Chelsea beat Liverpool last time out.

"I thank the Chelsea fans because it's rare an opposition manager gets that, hence why I went there first because I wanted to finish with the Derby fans", Lampard commented. It was a great opportunity to see them play in front of us and we took the opportunity.

MF N'Golo Kante, 7 - Showed no sign of fatigue in a game he wasn't expected to start and made life particularly hard for Mount on his Stamford Bridge return.

Chelsea assistant and Lampard's former team-mate Zola was frustrated with the Blues' defensive efforts, but did concede that much of that was down to Derby's play.

Ten-man Arsenal were made to sweat by League One Blackpool before eventually emerging 2-1 winners, with goals from Stefan Lichtsteiner and Emile Smith-Rowe.

Chelsea star Eden Hazard has missed the last two matches due to a back injury, yet is set to return to full fitness on the weekend.

The Premier League giants moved into the EFL Cup quarter-finals after the tight win at Stamford Bridge on Wednesday. His forward runs were just as unsafe to Chelsea as to the opponents; both visiting goals came from the space vacated on his flank.

Chelsea granted Derby special dispensation to field on loan pair Fikayo Tomori and Mason Mount against their parent club.

And it is this game from which Derby can gain confidence, with the Blues switching off defensively at times. That's why he scored so many goals.

Chelsea: Caballero 6, Zappacosta 7, Cahill 5, Christensen 5, Emerson 6, Kante 6, Fabregas 7, Kovacic 6, Loftus-Cheek 8, Morata 5, Willian 7. But now they have gone out and they can concentrate on the Championship, which is what is so important now.

"His character was enormous", Lampard said of Tomori.

Derby levelled swiftly as Tom Huddlestone pounced on Gary Cahill's pass to win the ball off Fabregas and fed Marriott to his left.
