  • Frank Lampard with the Champions League trophy

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.

All five goals were scored before half-time and the Rams' striker David Nugent hit the post in the dying stages of the game, as Derby pushed hard for an equaliser.

Lampard's Derby beat Manchester United and with luck, could have come out on top against another top-six Premier League team.

A hero's welcome awaited Frank Lampard as he strode back into the club where he ranks as a legendary figure, and the Derby County coach came close to causing Chelsea a Halloween nightmare.

Not only does he wear the same No 8 shirt as Lampard did in his storied career here, but Mount embodies the two qualities his manager has spoken of demanding from his players: being "brave" on the ball and displaying great "desire".

After several frights, Maurizio Sarri tweaked his defence, bringing on David Luiz and dropping deeper which saw the home side eventually grind out the win - to make it 15 unbeaten games in a row.

Pulis managed Palace for eight months in the 2013-14 season, helping keep the team in the Premier League. It is because we believe in the end of the day is that Mason and Tomori, they grew up as players.

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

Zola was also questioned about the recent comparisons between current Chelsea midfielder Ross Barkley and the clubs record-scorer Lampard.

Former minister Keith Vaz and Northern Irish MP Jim Shannon - both City fans - expressed their gratitude in the House of Commons. Claudio Ranieri revealed on Monday he had been "terribly shaken" by the death of Leicester City boss Vichai Srivaddhanaprabha .

On Tuesday, Burton Albion and Bournemouth booked their places in the quarter-finals while Premier League leaders Manchester City play Fulham on Thursday.

Predicted Derby County XI: Carson; Bogle, Tomori, Keogh, Forsyth; Wilson, Huddlestone; Waghorn, Mount, Lawrence; Nugent.

Controversy surrounded what turned out to be the winning goal for Chelsea.

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

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

Chelsea benefited from two Rams own goals, only for the Championship visitors to equalise on each occasion before Cesc Fabregas' 41st-minute strike proved decisive.

With rotation likely, Loftus-Cheek will be one of the favourites to start for Chelsea and could yet again find the net.

GK Willy Caballero, 6 - Could do nothing about either of Derby's goals, but his distribution was poor and nothing about him inspired confidence in his defenders.
