Son double sends Tottenham to English League Cup quarters

Mason Mount is due to play for Derby against parent club Chelsea

Derby are an ambitious club and can be a great platform for Lampard and co, but the onlooking Chelsea directors may dream of seeing one of the club's greatest players return to manage.

Warmly welcomed by the home support as he made his way out of the Chelsea tunnel, Frank Lampard was received as a returning hero for tonight's Carabao Cup tie.

The Blues laboured to get this victory in front of their fans thanks to Spanish football star Cesc Fabregas who scored the winning goal for Maurizio Sarri's men.

Chelsea are heavy favourites to beat Derby in 90 minutes on Wednesday, but the best bet could be for the Blues to go through while also conceding.

"He is certainly much better", Zola told his pre-match media conference on Tuesday ahead of their League Cup clash against Derby County.

There was another back and forth shortly after with Martyn Waghorn atoning for another own goal, this time from Tomori's centre-back partner Richard Keogh.

And it proved to be the victor as the upright denied David Nugent late on and left Blues legend Lampard to contemplate the unusual feeling of a Stamford Bridge defeat.

"I'm so thankful to the Chelsea fans", added Lampard, whose name was chanted by the home supporters throughout the match. "I'm so proud of my Derby County players".

Speaking after the game, Zola noted: "Gary played for the first time in a while".

Notorious Boston gangster Whitey Bulger killed in prison
As they called him a coward, a rat, a punk and Satan, Bulger kept his head down and showed no emotion as he scribbled on a pad. The ex-crime boss was on the run for years and was one of the FBI's most wanted before being captured in Santa Monica in 2011.

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

Davide Zappacosta's cross deflected in off Tomori's standing leg as Chelsea took the lead.

They really played well and surprised us, played with a lot of quality.

Under normal circumstances, loanees would not be permitted to play against their parent club if in case their adoptive club were to be drawn against them in any domestic competition.

The encounter had produced four goals within the first half-hour and there was more to come when Cesc Fabregas scored the goal that proved to be the difference between the two sides towards the end of the first half. But now they have gone out and they can concentrate on the Championship, which is what is so important now.

The look on his manager Frank Lampard's face said it all.

Keogh had a late chance to make amends for his earlier howler but Willy Caballero saved at close range and David Nugent hit the post in the 89th minute, leaving Lampard holding his head in his hands in frustration.

Chelsea are still unbeaten in competitive games this season.

Chelsea FC cemented their position in third place in the Premier League table and are two points adrift of leaders Manchester City and Liverpool FC.
