Son Heung-min burst out of a 19-game goal drought to help Tottenham into the English League Cup quarterfinals on Wednesday (Thursday NZ time), while a pair of early own-goals ruined Frank Lampard's return to former club Chelsea.

Tomori attempted to clear Davide Zappacosta's cross but the ball deflected backwards off his standing leg.

"The third goal was a foul", the former Chelsea and England midfielder said. The whole stadium saw that.

Frank Lampard revealed Chelsea's players and members of Maurizio Sarri's coaching staff were full of praise for his Derby County side.

GK Willy Caballero, 6 - Could do nothing about either of Derby's goals, but his distribution was poor and nothing about him inspired confidence in his defenders.

Lampard admitted an afternoon nap - a routine retained from his playing days - had proven hard on a surreal day. "I was analysing the players we had on loan". (I was) nervous and excited. 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.

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

He added: "I left quietly". I've got no bad feelings and I've got great relationships. Normally the distribution from the back is better than it has been tonight.

Meanwhile, Mason Mount and Fikayo Tomori both started for Derby despite the fact they are now out on loan from Chelsea.

He was as good as his word in that sense but he certainly lived every moment; a nervous ball of energy on the sideline, wincing at Tomori's own goal, suppressing a fist pump as Marriott saved his blushes shortly after and wincing once again as captain Richard Keogh shunted a replica of Tomori's error past Scott Carson. David Nugent almost levelled the scores late on (Nick Potts/PA) A near identical own goal - another Zappacosta cross, this time sliced into his own net by Richard Keogh - restored Chelsea's advantage after 21 minutes. "It doesn't feel like a defeat, but it's a benchmark for how we want to play from now on in".

That was the view of Chelsea assistant manager Gianfranco Zola, who faced the media ahead of the game, and provided an update on the progress of the Belgian.

"They played with a lot of quality, but our passing wasn't sharp and in the last 15 minutes we lost a bit of control". This could be the first game of many [for them] at Chelsea. In this country, in cup games, they can't be underestimated. "I think we deserved a draw on chances created".
