'Proud' Lampard appreciative of warm Chelsea reception

Chants from all sections of the ground throughout the stadium were accompanied by banners from the Matthew Harding end in Wednesday's Carabao Cup tie, as Lampard acknowledged the crowd for their support. It looks like they're in good hands.

"It wasn't easy for Mason Mount to come here against his parent club", continued Redknapp. However, he could have given the Rams the lead minutes earlier after being released through on goal but he hit his effort straight at Willy Caballero.

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.

Zola was unhappy with the way Chelsea finished the encounter, while he praised Frank Lampard's Derby. "I joke because I'm proud", Lampard told Sky Sports.

It's hard to make a case for any of the fringe players given an opportunity here to start in the Premier League against Crystal Palace on Sunday.

"I'm so thankful to the Chelsea fans", added Lampard, whose name was chanted by the home supporters throughout the match.

Frank Lampard's men continued to be fearless with the ball at their feet and pulled the visitors back on equal terms yet again through Martyn Waghorn, who got on the end of a precise low cross from Mason Mount after Derby made full use of a momentary lapse in concentration from Chelsea following a throw-in. The passing wasn't as sharp as it normally is, and the last 10-15 minutes we lost control. When you open up against a team with that quality, it is 50-50. "Not sure today, maybe tomorrow he's going to join us in training". "I did leave here quietly (in 2014), slightly out of the back door, so it's good to walk through the front door and get that".

The Italian wrote in his programme notes: "I have been pleased with the way my players have responded when we have made changes to the team in the last few weeks".

Tottenham Hotspur's Spanish striker Fernando Llorente (centre) celebrates scoring his team's third goal against West Ham during the English League Cup football match.

"It was a special, special night for me, Fik, Jody and the gaffer".

Chelsea are still unbeaten in competitive games this season.

"I have nothing but great memories of this place and they thank me like that. The aim is to come up and play in the Premier League".

Marriott has been directly involved in six goals in his past five games for Derby in all competitions (four goals, two assists).

Coming only a matter of days after Lampard was left fuming after Jayden Bogle scored an equally ridiculous own-goal, this Tomori one will take some beating.
