Chelsea will be without Eden Hazard against Derby County on Wednesday

Mason Mount Derby 2018-19

It was a mad old night, especially a chaotic, compelling first half, with Chelsea benefiting from two own goals, prompting Derby's magnificent 4,100 fans in the shed to ask politely of their hosts, "Shall we score a goal for you?"

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.

Chelsea have played more one-sided matches in the Premier League and Europe this season and Lampard and his coaching team, which includes Jody Morris and Chris Jones - who signed from Chelsea in the summer - can hold their heads up high.

"I thank the Chelsea fans because it's rare an opposition manager gets that, hence why I went there first because I wanted to finish with the Derby fans", Lampard commented.

For this reasons, we chose to compile a list of key players that have made the defense of these football clubs hard to penetrate.

It was always going to be about Frank Lampard, one of Chelsea's all-time greats, returning to this part of the capital where he is still revered by many as the greatest goal-scoring midfielder of his generation.

While remaining a star for South Korea, which he led to a gold medal - thereby earning exemption from military service - at the Asian Games in September, Son is no longer guaranteed a first-team place at Tottenham because of fierce competition up front.

Lampard must have sensed an opportunity missed as Derby conceded three times in the first half and could only reply twice, exiting as Chelsea advanced to the quarter-finals.

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

Attack: Chelsea are set to be without Eden Hazard once again as the Belgian global is still nursing a back injury that's seen him miss the last two games.

The Belgian forward has also won two League Cups, the FA Cup and the Europa League during his six-season stint at Stamford Bridge following a move from Lille in 2012.

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

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

Chelsea's loanees were involved in goals at both ends.

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

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.

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