On Loan

Mount and Tomori permitted to play

Chelsea Football Club has today granted Derby County permission to select loanees Mason Mount and Fikayo Tomori for next week’s Carabao Cup fourth-round fixture.

Unlike in the Premier League, EFL Cup rules allow for clubs in the competition to make such agreements for players to appear against their parent clubs.

Mount and Tomori have been regulars for the Rams under Frank Lampard this season, and, after beating Manchester United at Old Trafford in the previous round, we believe the experience of facing top-level opposition once more will be of benefit to their on-going development at Derby.
