The return of a Chelsea legend such as Frank Lampard, champion of the Champions League with the blue team and the Premier League in the best time of the London team, gave special appeal to the clash against Derby County Championship.
The Derby County came of beating the Manchester of Mourinho in a disputed round of penalties and now it was Chelsea’s turn, the former home of his coach who received it in style, Stamford Bridge was the stage for the knockout stage of the English Cup. Chelsea does not know the defeat this season and the Derby County players did not want to break the streak and collaborated with 2 own goals as a nice gesture with their coach.
First, after 5 minutes Fikayo Tomori crossed the path of the ball and ended up putting it in own door. The Italian Davide Zapacosta had sent a center that did not have anything of danger. Despite the own goal, Jack Marriott managed to level the match by scoring at minute 9, defender Richard Keogh, in the 21st minute, made a very similar mistake and increased the score for Chelsea. Another team would have been discouraged, drowned in its own shit, but it is not the case of the Derby, which did not come down and tied the game again. Martyn Waghorn fit the ball into the net at 27 minutes with a shot almost under the goal.
However, Fábregas took advantage of a rebound in the area and sealed the victory in minute 44 with a shot in the center of the arch. Scott Carson was able to get the ball, but he ended up sliding because of so many cumulative crap.
The game of the Derby was the same as against Manchester but this time they gave away 3 goals so that their coach did not beat the team of his love.
