London: Chelsea overcame in-form Championship side Derby County 2-0 in the FA Cup third round on Sunday, after West Ham United were thrashed 5-0 by Nottingham Forest.

Derby have won 10 of their 15 league games since former England manager Steve McClaren took over, but they fell to second-half goals from John Mikel Obi and Oscar as Chelsea set up a fourth-round meeting with Stoke City.

Chelsea enjoyed the best of the first half at Pride Park but they were largely restricted to pot shots from distance.
