  • Chelsea icon Frank Lampard claims Eden Hazard is better than Lionel Messi

Son Heung-min burst out of a 19-game goal drought to help Tottenham into the English League Cup quarterfinals on Wednesday (Thursday NZ time), while a pair of early own-goals ruined Frank Lampard's return to former club Chelsea.

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.

Chelsea have put a lot of emphasis on being successful in all competitions this season, including the Carabao Cup.

But he grew into the game and made good challenges and good decisions.

Chelsea manager Maurizio Sarri has made eight changes to the side which thrashed Burnley 4-0 in the Premier League on Sunday.

It was a special night for the manager who returned to Stamford Bridge for the first time tonight as a manager.

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.

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

Chelsea dumped Frank Lampard's Derby out of the League Cup despite a valiant effort by the Championship side to battle back from a defensive Halloween horror show. It is home. Not my current home, but my home for such a long time.

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.

Chelsea star Eden Hazard has missed the last two matches due to a back injury, yet is set to return to full fitness on the weekend.

Predicted Derby County XI: Carson; Bogle, Tomori, Keogh, Forsyth; Wilson, Huddlestone; Waghorn, Mount, Lawrence; Nugent. This was not how he had envisaged scoring his first Chelsea goal in front of the Shed End.

18+ only. Ts&Cs apply.

The Belgium worldwide came off the bench at Anfield in the previous round to score a wonder goal and set up the tie with the Rams, but he will not be repeating those heroics. "So we didn't have control of the game".

Also combined well with Ruben Loftus-Cheek and Zappacosta on the right.

Perhaps that was everything, but it was hard not to link Chelsea's fluctuating concentration levels with the fact that the focus of Stamford Bridge so often drifted to the visiting dugout.

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.
