Derby County manager Frank Lampard will return to Chelsea in the fourth round of the EFL Cup.

The Chelsea great masterminded a penalty shoot-out success at Manchester United on Tuesday, knocking out former Blues mentor Jose Mourinho, and he will now head back to Stamford Bridge.

The pick of the fixtures sees Derby, ninth in the Championship under Lampard, travelling to unbeaten Premier League high-flyers Chelsea in the week commencing October 29.

Another enticing clash sees West Ham host Tottenham, having sensationally knocked its rivals out at this stage of last season's competition.

Defending champions Manchester City has an all-Premier League meeting with Fulham, while last term's runners-up Arsenal host third-tier Blackpool.

Bournemouth and Leicester City both have home ties, with the latter facing Everton or Southampton.
