Gianfranco Zola gives latest Chelsea FC injury update on Eden Hazard

"It is important that we have a lot of players who can score goals and decide games and I hope they can continue to taker their opportunities". Maurizio Sarri's men were handed an early lead through Fikayo Tomori's unfortunate own goal before Jack Marriott restored parity for the visitors shortly thereafter.

League Cup - Follow the Football match between Chelsea and Derby County live with Eurosport.

The Italian admitted that Barkley was developing Lampard's goalscoring touch, but played down the comparisons, for the time being, saying: "I thought Frank Lampard getting in the box was exceptional".

'It happens. If he hadn't touched the ball, [Alvaro] Morata would have scored a goal. "I'm proud of my players".

Chelsea have revealed their side and substitutes to welcome Frank Lampard's Derby County side to Stamford Bridge for an EFL Cup tie this evening.

Former Chelsea FC forward Zola, who is now working as Maurizio Sarri's assistant manager at Stamford Bridge, is confident Hazard is nearing a return to first-team action.

Chelsea's game against Derby County can be viewed by United Kingdom residents on Sky Sports Main Event and Sky Sports Football, which are channels 401 and 403 respectively on Sky and channels 501 and 503 respectively for Virgin Media users. "The aim is to come up and play in the Premier League".




Chelsea FC cemented their position in third place in the Premier League table and are two points adrift of leaders Manchester City and Liverpool FC. "If we relax that then we are not the team we want to be".

Not only does he wear the same No 8 shirt as Lampard did in his storied career here, but Mount embodies the two qualities his manager has spoken of demanding from his players: being "brave" on the ball and displaying great "desire".

Despite the gulf in stature of recent times, Derby and Chelsea have had a fairly equal record in their past meetings.

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.

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. This was not how he had envisaged scoring his first Chelsea goal in front of the Shed End.

Ruben Loftus-Cheek is now enjoying the best goalscoring spell of his career, netting in two consecutive games for the first time. The quarter-final draw pits Arsenal against Spurs, while Chelsea take on Bournemouth and Middlesbrough play Burton.

"There wasn't a tear in the eye, but it was emotional, " Lampard said.
