"They know how I feel about them", Lampard, the club's all-time top scorer, told Sky Sports.

On Tuesday, Burton Albion and Bournemouth booked their places in the quarter-finals while Premier League leaders Manchester City play Fulham on Thursday.

Yet the Eagles can take solace from their performance against high-flying Arsenal last Sunday, when Palace held the Gunners to a 2-2 draw and stopped their stunning winning run.

"It is important that we have a lot of players who can score goals and decide games and I hope they can continue to taker their opportunities".

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.

Tomori's own goal after just five minutes - which deflected backwards off his standing leg as he attempted to clear Davide Zappacosta's cross - was greeted with encouragement from Lampard, who gestured to remain calm.

Keogh had a late chance to make amends for his earlier howler but Willy Caballero saved at close range and David Nugent hit the post in the 89th minute, leaving Lampard holding his head in his hands in frustration.

Chelsea's Cesc Fabregas would have to take a pay check to stay at Chelsea, according to the Evening Standard.

Victor Moses, who started in their win over Liverpool last month, could reclaim his Carabao Cup starting spot, with Willian occupying the left side of the front three.

He had been planning to settle in Istanbul and marry his Turkish fiancee when he was detained and killed in the Saudi Consulate. The kingdom insisted for weeks that the writer, who had been a critic of the Saudi government, had walked out of the consulate.

Chelsea granted Derby special dispensation to field on loan pair Fikayo Tomori and Mason Mount against their parent club.

The Italian concluded: "At first it wasn't showing it, because he was very much involved in learning tactically what the team needs him to do. That's the complaint. But we'll go through this".

Lampard scored a club record 211 goals in 648 appearances and 13 years at Chelsea, but left when his contract expired in June 2014 without having the chance to say goodbye.

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

"We were in control until about 10-15 minutes to go". That isn't normal. I did leave out of the back door here, and that was disappointing.

"Gary Cahill played for the first time in a while. I'm a lucky man to get it both ends".

The Belgium global came off the bench at Anfield in the previous round to score a wonder goal and set up the tie with the Rams, but he will not be repeating those heroics.

Chelsea have now won 11 of their past 12 home games against Derby in all competitions, netting 37 goals in those matches (3.1 per game).

Lampard spent time on the Stamford Bridge field after final whistle, applauding Chelsea's fans and getting plenty of cheers in return.
