Chelsea will be without Eden Hazard against Derby County on Wednesday

Chelsea will be without Eden Hazard against Derby County on Wednesday

Cahill's future at Chelsea is being called into question and he certainly didn't perform with the consistency of old during the Derby game.

The rams now look to complete there return in to the premier league this season.

On All Hallows' Eve, all eyes before kick-off at Stamford Bridge were on two youngsters dressed in black and white. In the end Mount and Tomori did more than many in a blue shirt to impress Maurizio Sarri, but they were not the story of the night.

Olivier Giroud faces a late test due to muscle fatigue so he might not be risked ahead of the Crystal Palace game at the weekend but Ethan Ampadu is back in full training following a knee injury.

But Fabregas' goal proved the victor as he took advantage when the ball ricocheted kindly from Chelsea right-back Zappacosta, who was involved in all of their goals. "I joke because I'm proud", he told Sky Sports.

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

Lampard gave everything to Chelsea and they gave it back, in recognition of a career that yielded 211 goals in 648 appearances, saw him lift 11 major honours and nearly win the Ballon d'Or, coming second to Ronaldinho back in 2005. Now he's getting that freedom.

Tomori's own goal after just five minutes - which deflected backwards off his standing leg as he attempted to clear Davide Zappacosta's cross - was greeted with encouragement from Lampard, who gestured to remain calm.

And it is this game from which Derby can gain confidence, with the Blues switching off defensively at times.

The U.S. economy grew by 3.5 percent in the third quarter
The slowdown in business spending "came earlier and was more than we expected, given where the stimulus is", Coronado said. Real GDP can be higher than real potential GDP if the economy gets extra stimulus from government spending or tax cuts.

Ruben Loftus-Cheek is now enjoying the best goalscoring spell of his career, netting in two consecutive games for the first time.

"There wasn't a tear in the eye, but it was emotional", Lampard said.

Every loose ball they chased, the players played for each other and never stopped believing they could get back into the match.

"It happens. If he hadn't touched that ball, [Alvaro] Morata would have scored a goal".

Furthermore, the English midfielder has managed four goals in those two games, including a hat-trick against BATE at Stamford Bridge last week.

Who goes through clear against Chelsea like we did on goal?

From his appearance in the visiting dugout to his lap of appreciation after the final whistle, Derby County's manager was serenaded with chants of "Super, super Frank" and "He's won it all".

Chelsea have been drawn at home to Bournemouth in a repeat of last season's quarter-final.

It will be the Blues' third match in the space of six days, having beaten BATE Borisov and Burnley in the Europa League and Premier League respectively.
