Why Chelsea's generosity to Frank Lampard may come back to haunt them

Why Chelsea's generosity to Frank Lampard may come back to haunt them

Derby County's impressive Carabao Cup run came to an abrupt halt on Wednesday night as Chelsea delivered a stiff knockout blow on Frank Lampard's grand return to Stamford Bridge.

Tomori scored an own goal after five minutes, but lifelong Chelsea fan Jack Marriott equalised within four minutes.

But Martyn Waghorn converted from Mason Mount's cross, another star on-loan from Chelsea, before Cesc Fabregas' strike before half-time proved to be the victor. 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.

In the end, though, Chelsea managed to deliver the killer blow and it actually came from one of their own players with Cesc Fabregas bagging his first of the season.

Before kick-off, a minute's applause was held in tribute to the victims of Saturday's helicopter crash at Leicester City.

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.

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.

"We certainly need to improve".

Fabregas got on the end of a cross from Davide Zappacosta, who had allegedly fouled Tom Lawrence in the build-up to it, to dispatch a fierce shot that hit Scott Carson on its way to the back of the net.

The mental test would be hardest, Lampard had warned, for Mason Mount and Fikayo Tomori, the two Chelsea loanees unusually granted permission to play against their parent club at Stamford Bridge. Before the match, he said he would be "proud and honoured" to face a "club that was his home for 13 years". They also eliminated Manchester United in the third round, triumphing 8-7 on penalties at Old Trafford.

Lampard also conducted a post-match lap of the pitch to applaud the Chelsea supporters, who will always count him as one of their own, for their extensive support on the night.

Chelsea assistant boss Gianfranco Zola said: "I thought Gary and Christensen could have done better in the first half".

"Derby wins because we can keep momentum, we can keep the same kind of team if Frankie elects to go with them". Our defence wasn't as good as other times. Sarri may look to make the most of the chance of playing at home to a team from the Sky Bet Championship and hand the experienced Argentine his second start of the season. The passing wasn't as sharp as it normally is, and the last 10-15 minutes we lost control.

What do we think, Blues?
