Chelsea midfielder Mason Mount wants first-team future at Stamford Bridge

Chelsea midfielder Mason Mount wants first-team future at Stamford Bridge”

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

Chelsea's centre-backs struggled against Derby.

Michael Essien says eliminating Chelsea in the EFL Cup will be a tough ask for Frank Lampard and Derby County.

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.

However, following the game, Lampard had nothing but love for his players who put in a shift for the Rams but unfortunately came up short.

Part of the Blues' success has seen a small rise in the careers of English duo Ross Barkley and Ruben Loftus-Cheek, both of whom are thriving under Sarri in the Italian's left-sided midfield role, carrying some of the attacking burden of the team.

Champions Manchester City host Fulham on Thursday.

Where can I watch live?

Speaking about the announcement, Zola told the assembled press: "I can tell you it's not that (Lampard)".

"My players had to really selfless stuff".

Always positive, always looking forward with impressive energy and - unlike Lampard did in his playing days - often leading the line, Mount helped to suffocate Chelsea with a high press and forced mistakes, particularly from Gary Cahill and Andreas Christensen.

"We believe the experience of facing top-level opposition once more will be of benefit to their on-going development at Derby", read a statement on Chelsea's website.

Will Sarri finally give youth a chance?

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

Chelsea was drawn to play Bournemouth at home in the quarterfinals.

Last time out fans had to wait until the following Saturday evening to find out the draw for the fourth round of the Carabao Cup.

The Blues progressed to the quarter-finals of the competition with a hard-fought 3-2 win over the Championship outfit at Stamford Bridge. He offered plenty of bite and might even have provided a lead with a cleverly clipped pass which freed Martyn Waghorn, only for the lumbering No 9 to panic in front of goal and stumble as he poked a shot straight at Caballero. Playing 106 times in total so far, Chelsea have won 39 to Derby's 38 including eight of the past 10.

With Eden Hazard missing the last three games, before the League Cup clash with Derby, with a back injury, the two homegrown talents have stepped up. Pedro, Olivier Giroud and Ethan Ampadu are all set to miss the contest, unless they improve on the day of the game.
