Samuel Eto'o had the best chance when he went one-on-one with Lee Grant in the Derby goal, but he took too long and allowed defenders to get back and challenge.

Chelsea again went close just before the whistle, when a deflected Ramires drive hit the base of the post, but Derby managed to hold on to make it through to half time unscathed.
