#Emmlaw Photos: Derby 0 Chelsea 2: Mikel and Oscar net as Chelsea cruise through to fourth round

Chelsea sealed a place in the fourth round of the FA Cup as John Obi Mikel and Oscar scored in a 2-0 victory at Derby.

Mikel broke the deadlock after 66 minutes after getting on the end of a wicked delivery from Willian and nodding the ball into the net.

Oscar then secured progression five minutes later as he rifled a swerving strike inside the near post.
