Carabao Cup Roundup: Chelsea Ruin Frank Lampard's Homecoming as Arsenal & Spurs Progress

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. They're doing very well for the team.

The on-loan defender returned with Frank Lampard's Derby County in the EFL Cup alongside fellow youth star Mason Mount.

The generosity was obviously contagious, as the away side soon gifted their hosts the lead just four minutes in - Fikayo Tomori, on loan at Derby from Chelsea, making a frightful hash of a fairly routine clearance and sending the ball trundling into his own net off his standing leg... "I joke because I'm proud", Lampard told Sky Sports.

Derby manager Lampard, who enjoyed 13 hugely successful years as a Chelsea player, watched his side put up a fearless fight against their Premier League opponents, twice levelling the match after calamitous own goals.

Despite his mistake, Chelsea fans have high hopes that Tomori can return to the club and fill John Terry's boots.

"I'm a lucky man to get that reaction both ends", he said.

Spurs, who were playing just 48 hours after a loss to Manchester City in the Premier League, are looking to claim a first piece of silverware under Mauricio Pochettino and end what will be an 11-year wait for a trophy.

But it failed to plug the leaks and it was no surprise that Fabregas forced home the third for Maurizio Sarri's side from close range in the 41st minute.

Arsenal went 2-0 up against Blackpool after Stephan Lichsteiner stretched out a leg to convert into the far corner and Emile Smith Rowe found the net after Carl Jenkinson's miscued cross came off the crossbar five minutes after the break.
