It’s obvious, that the Rams rely mostly on their games at “Pride Park Stadium” since the beginning of the new season, as Derby County F.C. lost only once in its previous twelve games here, with three draws and eight victories in this period (8-3-1 26-8).
It’s really an impressive record, although it should be noted, that those twelve encounters were against teams from League Championship or against teams from the lower divisions in the English football pyramid, while now the hosts will face really strong opponent, whose aim is to win the tournament.
The Blues lost 1-2 in their last visit in Newcastle (Newcastle United F.C. – Chelsea F.C. 2-1 on 06.12.2014), but it was their first defeat away from home since the beginning of April (fifteen consecutive games) and I doubt, that Jose Mourinho will underestimate this match, simply because only two games separate his team from the big final.
Chelsea F.C. took a 2-0 victory at “Pride Park Stadium” in the last match between these two teams in January (Derby County F.C. – Chelsea F.C. 0-2 on 15.01.2014 / FA Cup).
