Chelsea hang on against stubborn Derby County

Chelsea hang on against stubborn Derby County

However, in a "gesture of goodwill", Chelsea announced that their Derby loanees Mason Mount and Fikayo Tomori will be allowed to play against them in the club's Carabao cup tie at Stamford Bridge on Wednesday night.

Chelsea are still unbeaten in competitive games this season.

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. "[It wasn't] great for Fik in the first four minutes", Lampard said after the game.

Tom Huddlestone (Derby) Huddlestone plied his trade in the Premier League for many years, and on the basis of this performance the 31-year-old could still prove valuable for one of the smaller clubs in the division. Chelsea began the hospitality early by kindly granting permission for Mount and Tomori to play against them.

Chelsea had granted dispensation for both Mount and Tomori, who are spending the season on loan with Frank Lampard's team, to play against their parent club on Wednesday night.

Hazard is looking to win the Premier League title for the third time in his Chelsea FC career, having previously got his hands on the top-flight crown in 2015 and 2017.

Yet while Derby were obliging, they always carried a potent threat of their own with Mount and Harry Wilson pesky.

Gianfranco Zola has provided a positive update on Eden Hazard's injury ahead of Chelsea FC's home clash against Crystal Palace at Selhurst Park on Sunday evening. As a result, Callum Hudson-Odoi could be trusted with a start with Willian needing a rest after starting the past nine games in all competitions.

Attention now turns back to league action this weekend and the manager wants his side to continue the good form built up.

"We have two massive games coming up but we can never relax".

He must at least have had a smile on his face as Derby's fans subsequently launched into an ironic cheer of "Shall we score a goal for you?"

After scoring the fourth during Chelsea's 4-0 win over Burnley, Ruben Loftus-Cheek could be handed with another start for Sarri's side against the Rams. But now they have gone out and they can concentrate on the Championship, which is what is so important now. He offered plenty of bite and might even have provided a lead with a cleverly clipped pass which freed Martyn Waghorn, only for the lumbering No 9 to panic in front of goal and stumble as he poked a shot straight at Caballero.
