Chelsea v Derby tips: Can Lampard’s new side upset his old one?

| 31.10.2018

All eyes will be on Frank Lampard tonight as the Chelsea legend takes his Derby County side to Stamford Bridge in the Carabao Cup.

Derby have already knocked out Manchester United this term. Can they claim another giant-killing here?

Before it kicks-off, we’ve got all the key info and odds for you…

Match Odds

Chelsea are unbeaten under Maurizio Sarri so far. They’re 1/4 to win in 90 mins here and 1/8 to qualify.

Derby are in decent form too, with just two defeats in their last 14 outings. But the Championship side are out at 12/1 to win in normal time and 5/1 to qualify.

The draw is going for 19/4.

Talking Tactics

Sarri is set to give the likes of Ruben Loftus-Cheek, Cesc Fabregas and Andreas Christensen a rare start in this one.

The Italian will want his side to control possession, but the unfamiliar XI may find it hard to get into their rhythm.

Lampard named a strong side against United and should do the same here. Derby have been boosted by Chelsea giving them permission to play on-loan duo Mason Mount and Fikayo Tomori.

Mount could make his parent club regret their decision. He’s been one of the stars in the second-tier so far this season.

Goalscorer Odds

Alvaro Morata and Olivier Giroud both lead the way at 3/1 to open the scoring. They’re 5/6 apiece to net at any point too.

Loftus-Cheek got a hat-trick on his last start for the Blues. We go 17/10 that he gets another goal here.

The odds suggest David Nugent and Jack Marriott are Derby’s best hopes of taking the lead at 12/1 each to score first. The duo are both 7/2 to score anytime.

Mount already has two goals in this competition so far. He’s priced at 11/2 to get another here.
