Zola critical of Chelsea duo after cup win

Zola critical of Chelsea duo after cup win

"I'm so proud of my Derby County players".

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.

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.

When you consider that four of the five goals scored on the night came from Derby players, you'd expect that Lampard did just that but Chelsea rode their luck and took the win.

The Rams nearly forced the game into penalties when David Nugent, who came on as a second-half substitute, thought he had scored but saw his shot rebound off the inside of the post.

Davide Zappacosta's cross deflected in off Tomori's standing leg as Chelsea took the lead.

Mount has been one of the stars of the Championship so far and played a key role in Derby's shock win over Manchester United in the previous round of the Carabao Cup at Old Trafford. They may be out the Carabao cup but they went out swinging and fighting till the end.

Chelsea granted Derby special dispensation to field on loan pair Fikayo Tomori and Mason Mount against their parent club. At first it wasn't showing, because he was very much involved learning tactically what the team needs him to do, but now he's getting that freedom is taking out all of his ability.

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

Mason Mount has told ESPN FC that he wants to play for Chelsea next season and hopes to emulate his current Derby manager Frank Lampard's achievements at the club. "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".

"And then when I first came here, with Jose, the first target was to win the League Cup".

Although he recovered well, Derby lost 3-2 to Chelsea and therefore were went home empty-handed.

"I've got nothing but great memories and to come back here and be treated like that, I'm a lucky man".

This could be the first game of many [for them] at Chelsea.

FW Pedro, 6 - Looked well enough physically after leaving the Burnley game early with severe stomachache, but may take a little longer to rediscover his early-season rhythm in the final third. Two own-goals and a contentious Chelsea third gave his side a mountain to climb, but this young, resilient Derby team continued to create the better opportunities and were agonisingly close to bringing the tie all the way to penalties.
