Zola wants on loan pair to play against Chelsea in Carabao Cup

Zola wants on loan pair to play against Chelsea in Carabao Cup

Zola also had kind words for Chelsea loanee Mason Mount, who will play against his parent club for Derby at Stamford Bridge on Wednesday.

Derby lost 3-2 and was ultimately undone by two own-goals in the opening 21 minutes - the first of which was scored in the fifth minute by a player on loan from Chelsea, Mikayo Tomori.

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.

Speaking about the announcement, Zola told the assembled press: "I can tell you it's not that (Lampard)".

"We believe that by playing against us is an opportunity for them to grow up quicker".

For the first time in his fledgeling managerial career, Lampard will be in the opposition dugout against the club where he won 11 major trophies - including three Premier League titles and the Champions League.

"If we play like that we will win games. But in the future, it does not mean we will keep doing that". There will be a lot at stake.

"There will also be a psychological component".

While remaining a star for South Korea, which he led to a gold medal - thereby earning exemption from military service - at the Asian Games in September, Son is no longer guaranteed a first-team place at Tottenham because of fierce competition up front. It will give them a good test.

Like Lampard, Zola is regarded as a Chelsea legend, and was at the club when the former England global signed for £11 million from West Ham United in 2001.

Ahead of kickoff, banners with the words "GOAL AFTER GOAL, GAME AFTER GAME" and "FOREVER A BLUE, ALWAYS A LEGEND" flanked a giant image of Lampard in the Matthew Harding Stand, emblazoned with the number 211 - his peerless goal tally for Chelsea.

"To come here in front of all the fans, all of the Derby fans were unbelievable tonight as they always are".

Meanwhile, 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. As it was, Chelsea's much-changed lineup survived to force their way into a quarter-final at a club icon's expense.

"I'm very honest on this".

"It will be easy to do that because I respect the club".

Both of his English teammates have been in fine goal-scoring form recently - bagging six strikes in the last three games - and Kovacic needed to impress to make the team.

Chelsea supporters greeted their record goalscorer, now a mere opponent rather than an enemy, with such unadulterated adoration that this lively Carabao Cup fourth-round tie felt like a footnote to the love-in.

"Obviously when someone has his name it is a big advantage and if you are ready you can go and do that, provided you have someone next to you in the beginning who can help".
