Tomori and Richard Keogh scored own goals for Derby, who fought back on both occasions through Jack Marriott and Martyn Waghorn, before Cesc Fabregas' 41st-minute strike proved to be the victor.

Jack Marriott and Martyn Waghorn scored the goals for Derby, with Cesc Fabregas scoring the victor just before half-time.

The match will see Chelsea's all-time leading goalscorer, Frank Lampard, attempt to guide the Rams, who he now manages, to another shock victory in this competition, having beaten Manchester United in the third round of this competition last month. "The aim is to come up and play in the Premier League". "I'm so proud of my Derby County players".

"The staff, fans, players, it is an incredible club with a great history".

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.

ATP roundup: Federer tested, but moves into Basel semis
But a run of five consecutive games for Federer maintained the world number three's spectacular run in this competition. Second-seeded Kevin Anderson of South Africa led Croatian No. 6 Borna Coric 7-6 (2), 1-2 when Coric retired.

According to a UK Sun report, Lampard insists that the 27-year-old's current form under Italian manager, Maurizio Sarri is far better than that of Argentina's Lionel Messi.

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

Ten-man Arsenal were made to sweat by League One Blackpool before eventually emerging 2-1 winners, with goals from Stefan Lichtsteiner and Emile Smith-Rowe. Marriott slips through Nugent and his shot from an acute angle beats Caballero but cannons off the post and bounces back to into the safe arms of the Chelsea goalkeeper.

The Belgian forward has also won two League Cups, the FA Cup and the Europa League during his six-season stint at Stamford Bridge following a move from Lille in 2012.

Injuries to Pedro and Eden Hazard leave Chelsea short on wingers.

No German arms to Saudi until Khashoggi case is clarified: Merkel
World leaders, meanwhile, continue to urge the Saudi authorities to clarify the circumstances of the journalist's murder. All four of Khashoggi's children are now in the U.S.

This is actually the truth, Man Utd so far have conceded just three goals in 10 matches, Liverpool have conceded four while Chelsea have conceded seven.

And it is this game from which Derby can gain confidence, with the Blues switching off defensively at times.

Yet for all their slick approach play, Derby's defence was constantly on edge, particularly with Ruben Loftus-Cheek at his rampaging best.

Chelsea benefited from two Rams own goals, only for the Championship visitors to equalise on each occasion before Cesc Fabregas' 41st-minute strike proved decisive.

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. 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.
