  • Ethan Ampadu is yet to make a first-team appearance for Chelsea this season

Eden Hazard will not feature for Chelsea against Derby County in the Carabao Cup but is "much better" and should return to full training on Wednesday, according to assistant manager Gianfranco Zola.

Derby had yet to have a shot on target registered against them as they found themselves 2-1 down, with own goals from Fikayo Tomori and Richard Keogh cancelling out an earlier strike from Chelsea fan Jack Marriott.

Chelsea supporters greeted their record goalscorer, now a mere opponent rather than an enemy, with such unadulterated adoration that this lively Carabao Cup fourth-round tie felt like a footnote to the love-in.

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.

"This wasn't a game for Mason to run because he's against Chelsea, against [N'Golo] Kante, [Mateo] Kovavic and Fabregas", Lampard added.

Lampard's Derby beat Manchester United and with luck, could have come out on top against another top-six Premier League team.

"It will be easy to do that because I respect the club".

Redknapp was joined in the studio at Stamford Bridge by former Chelsea striker Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink, who was impressed with the way his former team-mate Lampard set Derby up to give Chelsea problems.

Tom Huddlestone (Derby) Huddlestone plied his trade in the Premier League for many years, and on the basis of this performance the 31-year-old could still prove valuable for one of the smaller clubs in the division. Tomorrow we are going to decide whether he is going to be part of the team'.

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

"Walking out at Stamford Bridge will be very special for me", admitted Lampard, who played alongside Hazard for two years at Stamford Bridge, before ending his 13 years stay at Chelsea in 2014.

MF N'Golo Kante, 7 - Showed no sign of fatigue in a game he wasn't expected to start and made life particularly hard for Mount on his Stamford Bridge return.

DF David Luiz, 6 - Brought on for Christensen to give Chelsea greater defensive solidity, he broadly did his job as Derby pushed in vain for an equaliser in the final 20 minutes. This could be the first game of many [for them] at Chelsea.

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.

Chelsea are still unbeaten in domestic competition this season, and despite their potential absentees they will be looking to come through against Derby and move into the quarter final of the competition.
