Chelsea beat Lampard's Derby to reach League Cup quarters

Mason Mount Derby 2018-19

On Tuesday, Burton Albion and Bournemouth booked their places in the quarter-finals while Premier League leaders Manchester City play Fulham on Thursday. "He deserves big credit for this".

Kovacic is unlikely to be in the most competitive position in the whole Chelsea side and he might need an eye for goal to make it his.

Perhaps that was everything, but it was hard not to link Chelsea's fluctuating concentration levels with the fact that the focus of Stamford Bridge so often drifted to the visiting dugout. Like for example, [Gus] Poyet, [Gianluca] Vialli, [Roberto] Di Matteo, you could see they would be it if they wanted.

Here is how we rated Chelsea's players... His forward runs were just as unsafe to Chelsea as to the opponents; both visiting goals came from the space vacated on his flank.

He believes the key now for the Rams is to take these displays into the Championship every week. Managed to stabilise himself in the second, but this isn't the display that will persuade Sarri to pick him over David Luiz, who eventually replaced him.

Ease of Doing Business
India has improved its rank by 53 positions in the last two years, and 65 positions in the last four years (2014-18). The country recorded a rise of 30 places in the rankings a year ago , clinching the 100th spot.

Muncy homers in 18th, Dodgers trim Series deficit to 2-1
Martinez bats fourth, followed by Bogaerts and third baseman Eduardo Nunez, who pinch hit in the 10th inning in Game 3. Some videos showed the team singing Frank Sinatra's New York, New York and Tupac's California Love in the clubhouse.

Saudi sisters' bound bodies wash ashore in mystery
The sisters were found laying on rocks near the river, fully-clothed, both wearing black jackets with fur trim and black leggings. Officials wouldn't confirm the report publicly but did confirm they're looking into the sisters' immigration status.

A stumbling Waghorn passed up a one-on-one chance to complete a quickfire turnaround and Derby punished themselves through more calamitous defending.

We are predicting that the Blues team to face Derby will be one that is nearly unrecognisable from the one that battered Burnley 4-0 on Sunday.

Lampard won every domestic and European honour over the course of 13 years at Stamford Bridge and will be greeted as a hero on his return.

Part of the Blues' success has seen a small rise in the careers of English duo Ross Barkley and Ruben Loftus-Cheek, both of whom are thriving under Sarri in the Italian's left-sided midfield role, carrying some of the attacking burden of the team.

Instead of giving Derby a free-kick, Chelsea were awarded a throw-in, from which Fabregas hit the victor. Last time out, the Blues put on a strong XI to face Liverpool but could give Callum Hudson-Odoi his first start of the season as the games come thick and fast. His height and strength made him an outlet when Derby pressed and his powerful running on the ball caused regular panic. Few club legends, even others every bit as significant in Chelsea's recent history, have been exposed to the sheer level of love lavished on him in the midst of a competitive setting - a penny for the thoughts of Jose Mourinho - and the very real sense of jeopardy brought by his vibrant and dynamic Derby side sat awkwardly with the gushing tributes. They came here and supported us like the 12th man, they were unbelievable.
