Frank Lampard loses on return to Chelsea with Derby, Tottenham ease past West Ham, Arsenal advance


round-up

The London trio all moved into the quarter-finals with victories on Wednesday night

It was an eventful night in the Carabao Cup.

Here’s what happened in the last 16 matches that took place on Wednesday night…

Frank Lampard was given a hero’s welcome by the Chelsea fans

Frank Lampard was beaten on his return to Stamford Bridge as his Derby side went down 3-2 in a thrilling Carabao Cup fourth-round tie against Chelsea.

Chelsea’s record goalscorer Lampard, who is now the Rams manager, was given a good ovation before kick-off but another returning Blue made a poor start as the hosts took an early lead.

Fikayo Tomori, who is on loan from Chelsea, turned into his own net when he mishit a clearance after five minutes.

Jack Marriott, who scored against Manchester United in the last round, responded with a quickfire equaliser but Chelsea reclaimed the lead with another own goal, this time from Richard Keogh.

Martyn Waghorn made up for an earlier miss by levelling for a second time but Cesc Fabregas swept Chelsea back ahead before the break.

Derby rallied in the second half, and hit the post through David Nugent late on, but Chelsea held on.

Heung Min-Son scored his first goals of the season in a 3-1 victory for Tottenham at London rivals West Ham.

The South Korean forward marked his 150th appearance for Spurs with the opening two goals to fire Spurs into the quarter-finals of the Carabao Cup.

The Hammers came from 2-0 down to knock Tottenham out at the same stage last season but there was to be no repeat of those Wembley heroics in east London.

Lucas Perez did briefly halve the deficit but Fernando Llorente, handed a rare run-out with Harry Kane rested, wrapped up victory for Spurs.

Arsenal overcame Sky Bet League One club Blackpool 2-1 at the Emirates Stadium in a match that saw both sides finish with 10 men.

The Gunners were rewarded for their first-half dominance when Stephan Lichtsteiner opened the scoring after 34 minutes and youngster Emile Smith Rowe added a second soon after the break.

Arsenal’s Matteo Guendouzi was dismissed for a second bookable offence and Blackpool responded through Paudie O’Connor, but he was then sent off and the hosts completed the job.

A thunderous strike from Lewis Wing on the stroke of half-time proved enough as Championship Middlesbrough beat Premier League Crystal Palace 1-0 at the Riverside Stadium.

Palace applied pressure in the latter stages, and had a penalty appeal for handball turned down, but Boro, managed by former Eagles boss Tony Pulis, held on.
