Frank Lampard prepares to return to Stamford Bridge as Chelsea takes on Derby in Carabao Cup fourth round

Frank Lampard will return to Stamford Bridge as a manager after his Derby side were drawn to play Chelsea in the fourth round of the Carabao Cup on Saturday night.

The Rams produced the upset of round three when they eliminated Jose Mourinho and Manchester United on penalties and Lampard has been rewarded with a tie at the club he spent the majority of his playing career with.

During a glittering career at Stamford Bridge, Lampard made 649 appearances and won three Premier League titles and the Champions League.
He went on to join New York City in the MLS and also had a brief stint at Manchester City in the 2014/15 season before retiring. Lampard then went on to make the move into management this summer, taking his first job at the Championship side.

Elsewhere, reigning champions Manchester City will take on fellow Premier League side Fulham, while Arsenal have been drawn at home against League One Blackpool.

Tottenham will go to West Ham in a repeat of last year’s tie, which saw the Hammer progress at Wembley. Leicester will play either Everton or Southampton in another all-top flight tie as Crystal Palace travel to Middlesbrough.

Eddie Howe’s Bournemouth host Championship side Norwich while Burton meet Nottingham Forest to complete the draw.

Matches will take place in the week commencing October 29.
