Predicted line-up against Derby County: Ruben Loftus-Cheek to continue recovery?

  • Eden Hazard injured his back in Chelsea’s draw with Manchester United

Fikayo Tomori, on loan from the Blues, scored an own goal after five minutes, but lifelong Chelsea fan Jack Marriott equalised within four minutes.

Derby put in an excellent display at Stamford Bridge, twice battling back from a goal behind in the first half before Cesc Fabregas grabbed what turned out to be the victor just before half-time.

Lampard took it all in his stride, of course, transitioning effortlessly from clapping the songs directed at him to vigorously applauding his Derby players as they hassled and harried Chelsea into defensive mistakes. "The aim is to come up and play in the Premier League".

A hero's welcome awaited Frank Lampard as he strode back into the club where he ranks as a legendary figure, and the Derby County coach came close to causing Chelsea a Halloween nightmare.

"The staff, fans, players, it is an incredible club with a great history".

So the sanctions stand", said Peever at a media conference on Monday after the review was made public. It also hastened the departures of coach Darren Lehmann and CA chief executive James Sutherland.

Chelsea - who made eight changes for the game but still fielded 11 internationals - were ahead again before the break, but it wasn't without controversy.

The look on his manager Frank Lampard's face said it all.

The size of the challenge to beat Chelsea was huge for Derby, with no win here since 1983 and no clean sheet since Peter Shilton's blank in 1987.

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.

"I was really impressed with how well they pressed with the three up front and the three midfielders, they brought Chelsea a lot of problems", said Hasselbaink.

Ms Asia Bibi's case drew the attention of worldwide rights groups and swiftly became the most high-profile in the country. The women said that because she had drunk from a cup they could no longer use it, as her faith had made it unclean.

Chelsea are through, Mount and Tomori got some valuable big-game experience, and Stamford Bridge got to pay tribute to perhaps the club's biggest legend without the night being tainted by an upset defeat (just about). Subs: Forsyth 5, Bennett 5, Nugent 6.

Chelsea's loanees were involved in goals at both ends. However, the Blues are confident Hazard will be fit to return against Palace at the weekend.

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

Yet for all their slick approach play, Derby's defence was constantly on edge, particularly with Ruben Loftus-Cheek at his rampaging best.

MF Cesc Fabregas 6 - His long-range passing was off and he was caught out for Derby's first goal, but timed a run into the penalty area perfectly to score Chelsea's crucial third goal with their first shot on target.

White House Invites Russian President Vladimir Putin to Washington
He said scheduling for the trip had yet to be worked out, but Mr Putin would be invited "after the first of the year". Mr Putin said any European countries agreeing to host United States missiles would be at risk of a Russian attack.

Interestingly, now Derby manager Lampard scored four goals that day, but will be hoping for less of the same come Wednesday - though goals are a guarantee.
