Why Chelsea's generosity to Frank Lampard may come back to haunt them

Ethan Ampadu is yet to make a first-team appearance for Chelsea this season

Olivier Giroud will finally break his duck and grab a couple of goals before a late flourish ends Derby's run.

It is pretty obvious that Derby securing loans from Chelsea for Mount and Tomori was due to Lampards connections to the club, but the former midfielder has proved it was not for kicks as his side have been impressive in the Championship so far. "He has achieved so much with this club, personally and for the club", he added. The more they play against Premier League teams the more experience they get.

Maybe the gloriously frantic nature of this contest, with its barely conceivable subplots and storylines, could have been predicted. Like for example, [Gus] Poyet, [Gianluca] Vialli, [Roberto] Di Matteo, you could see they would be it if they wanted.

Meanwhile, Legit.ng previously had reported that Chelsea fans have taken a swipe on former goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois, who dumped the Blues for Real Madrid in the summer, after conceding five times against Barcelona in Sunday's El Clasico at the Camp Nou. It was that kind of occasion. Chelsea began the hospitality early by kindly granting permission for Mount and Tomori to play against them.

Gianfranco Zola has provided a positive update on Eden Hazard's injury ahead of Chelsea FC's home clash against Crystal Palace at Selhurst Park on Sunday evening.

Tomori's test was enhanced when he diverted an innocuous Zappacosta cross into his own net after mis-kicking an attempted clearance. A goal in each half will be enough to seal the win for Chelsea, and we move on.

Zola sees no reason why Mount and Tomori could not celebrate a Derby goal or victory.

"Derby were excellent. They created us more problems".

Boss Maurizio Sarri goes with Willy Caballero in goal, while Gary Cahill and Andreas Christensen are the centre-back pair. 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. Lampard's new side had his old side absolutely rattled for long periods here, with Mason Mount and Tom Huddlestone outstanding.

Both Chelsea and Derby have enjoyed good starts under their new managers with the Blues now unbeaten in the Premier League and Derby sixth in the Championship.

"There wasn't a tear in the eye, but it was emotional, " Lampard said.

That goal was assessed by the VAR and permitted to stand. Yet, with Carson denying Cahill at Willian's corner, Derby still threatened to force parity. Midway through the half, lightning struck twice when Keogh failed to deal with another Zappacosta delivery, haplessly steering the ball into his own net.
