  • It's all over and Chelsea have booked an FA Cup fourth-round clash with Stoke thanks to this hard-fought 2-0 victory over Derby. Second-half goals from Mikel and Oscar proved enough to see off the plucky Sky Bet Championship outfit, who can take plenty of positives from this clash as they turn their focus on a promotion push. Stay with us for a full report and reaction.

  • Chelsea have no intention of conceding at this late stage as Cole does well to head a cross behind for a Derby corner, which is subsequently cleared.

  • There will be three minutes of stoppage time to be played before the final whistle is blown.

  • Derby fans want a free kick when Hughes goes down under pressure from Luiz but the referee waves play on.

  • Derby have a free kick on the right wing but the delivery comes to nothing.

  • Oscar makes way for Lewis Baker as Chelsea make their final change.

  • Bennett comes close to pulling a goal back as his low drive from the edge of the box goes narrowly wide.

  • The Derby fans sense a new lease of life from their side as a few hopeful crosses get sent into the box.

  • Connor Sammon's reverse pass down the left side of the area falls into the path of Martin, who sees his powerful shot saved at the near post by Schwarzer.

  • A Derby goal would at least make the closing stages of this clash interesting but there's no sign of this coming at the moment as a long ball over the top is headed back by Cole into the arms of Schwarzer.

  • Derby make their final change og the match with Dawkins being replaced by James Bailey.

  • The Blues have a corner which Derby are able to clear and prevent sustaining further damage.

  • Chelsea have clearly picked up the pace again and Ramires comes agonisingly close when his shot hits the top of the bar.

  • Moments later the Spaniard has a chance to redeem himself but his low shot from a tight angle down the right side of the area is well saved by Grant.

  • Fernando Torres skips inside the box and then rounds Grant but somehow loses control of the ball and allows the Derby defence to get back and prevent him slotting into an empty net.

  • Chelsea have a throw down the right wing which they are in no hurry to take as they look to wind down for the final part of this match.

  • Cahill makes a bit of a mess of Wisdom's cross from the right but Azpilicueta is on hand to clear.

  • Chelsea may well have just taken their foot off the gas having grabbed that second goal which has surely killed off any Derby hope of earning a replay.

  • Derby enjoy a brief spell of possession but are unable to create a chance in the final third.

  • Nevertheless the Sky Bet Championship club can be proud of their efforts this afternoon having restricted Chelsea to just two shots on target so far.
