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

The Croatian has started six times in the league so far and his inclusion has limited the playing time of Loftus-Cheek, who vowed to stay and fight for his place after impressing on loan at Crystal Palace last term. That's why he scored so many goals.

Lady Luck fails to shine on returning Lampard's fearless and battling side.

Key Stat: Chelsea have conceded three goals in their past three matches across all competitions.

Broncos May Be Entering Rebuild Mode After Demaryius Thomas Trade
Texans in Denver was going to be an interesting Week 9 game without the storyline of Demaryius Thomas' quick return to Mile High. The Broncos acquired a fourth-round draft pick from the Texans and the teams will also swap seventh-round picks.

"We can call it a friendly draw, but Bournemouth is not going to be easy for sure".

Maurizio Sarri would still have been unimpressed at the lack of control his team had exerted in that frenetic period, though they had more authority thereafter and, certainly, more control of possession.

But Fabregas' goal proved the victor as he took advantage when the ball ricocheted kindly from Chelsea right-back Zappacosta, who was involved in all of their goals. Subs: Azpiliecueta 5, Pedro 5, Luiz 5.

Not only does he wear the same No 8 shirt as Lampard did in his storied career here, but Mount embodies the two qualities his manager has spoken of demanding from his players: being "brave" on the ball and displaying great "desire".

Saudi Arabian sisters found duct-taped together in NY's Hudson River
The women's bodies washed up along the banks of the Hudson River in Riverside Park, on the Upper West Side, Wednesday, Oct. 24. A George Mason spokesman called the news of her death "tragic", and said the university was cooperating with police.

Timori sliced into his own net in the fifth minute, miscuing a clearance when attempting to deal with an innocuous-looking Davide Zappacosta cross. The visitors were adamant Zappacosta had fouled Scott Malone in the build-up to the hosts' third, which was eventually dispatched crisply by Fàbregas to fly in off Carson's left hand as the goalkeeper slumped to his right.

Perhaps that was everything, but it was hard not to link Chelsea's fluctuating concentration levels with the fact that the focus of Stamford Bridge so often drifted to the visiting dugout. Otherwise, Fabregas had to loft a pass over Derby's midfielders to find his own midfielders or wingers, who were sandwiched between Derby's midfield and defensive lines. Huddlestone carves open the defence with a lovely ball through to Marriott, who still has plenty to do.
