"My overriding feeling is thanks to the Chelsea fans and the Derby fans and pride at the team".

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.

DF Davide Zappacosta, 6 - Provided two assists with unsafe crosses, though it's hard to know how much credit to give him when they both found Derby players.

MF N'Golo Kante, 7 - Showed no sign of fatigue in a game he wasn't expected to start and made life particularly hard for Mount on his Stamford Bridge return. "That's why I try to just enjoy it and be up for it", he told Sky Sports. Seven points from nine have propelled Derby back into the play-off positions and Waghorn wants to continue that form and climb the table. But then an opportunity to send him to play in England in such a competitive league like the Championship came and the club decided it was good for him.

Olivier Giroud also has fatigue in one of his legs, but youngster Ethan Ampadu could be back in contention after returning to full training following a knee injury this week.

It was in the build up to Fabregas' first of the season that Derby felt Tom Lawrence was fouled by Davide Zappacosta, only for the Italian to take a quick throw-in and referee Jon Moss to dismiss protests.

'I didn't play in the league for the first three or four months under Antonio Conte until a game against Manchester City, which changed my way in Antonio's head. Chelsea fans in the Matthew Harding upper and lower promptly replied with "Derby Derby, give us a goal". That's why he scored so many goals. It took just five minutes and a woefully misguided swing of Tomori's boot to hammer the message home, as well as set the tone for a wild and at times comically frantic contest.

Son scored his first two goals of the season and another of Tottenham's forgotten men, Fernando Llorente, added one in a 3-1 win over West Ham in an all-Premier League London derby at the Olympic Stadium.

Premier League counterparts Bournemouth will be our opponents in the quarter-finals, as it was revealed last night following the fourth round fixtures. But now they have gone out and they can concentrate on the Championship, which is what is so important now.

Who will come out on top in the battle of the managers Maurizio Sarri or Frank Lampard?

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