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

Ross Barkley registered two assists and a goal against Burnley in his most impressive performance of the season so far, and Zola said there are elements of Barkley's game that remind him of Derby boss and Chelsea legend Frank Lampard.

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. This could be the first game of many [for them] at Chelsea. It is because we believe in the end of the day is that Mason and Tomori, they grew up as players.

On Tuesday, Burton Albion and Bournemouth booked their places in the quarter-finals while Premier League leaders Manchester City play Fulham on Thursday.

Eden Hazard will not feature for Chelsea against Derby County in the Carabao Cup but is "much better" and should return to full training on Wednesday, according to assistant manager Gianfranco Zola. It is home. Not my current home, but my home for such a long time.

21' - OWN-GOAL! Chelsea 2-1 Derby: Dear, oh dear!

Attack: Chelsea are set to be without Eden Hazard once again as the Belgian worldwide is still nursing a back injury that's seen him miss the last two games. Subs: Forsyth 5, Bennett 5, Nugent 6.

That could well be the biggest hurdle facing Mount in his hopes of making the Chelsea first-team when he returns from loan.

Attention now turns back to league action this weekend and the manager wants his side to continue the good form built up. "So we didn't have control of the game".

Furthermore, the English midfielder has managed four goals in those two games, including a hat-trick against BATE at Stamford Bridge last week. He showed frustration at the goals his team conceded but, true to his word, declined to celebrate the ones they scored, settling instead for a silent, satisfied swig of water.

After scoring the fourth during Chelsea's 4-0 win over Burnley, Ruben Loftus-Cheek could be handed with another start for Sarri's side against the Rams.

You'd have to go back to 2008 to find the last time the pair faced off at Stamford Bridge, a Premier League fixture.

Key Stat: Chelsea (31) and Derby (30) have combined to score 61 goals in all competitions this season.

The Championship side, conquerors of Manchester United in the previous round, provided a properly stern test of Chelsea's undefeated team in a thrilling game and were denied parity - and the possibility of another penalty shootout - only when David Nugent's late shot fizzed beyond Willy Caballero and rebounded back to the goalkeeper off the far post.

"His character was huge", Lampard said of Tomori.
