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

The former Chelsea star masterminded a penalty shootout success at Manchester United in midweek, 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 United host Tottenham Hotspur, having sensationally knocked their rivals out at this stage of last season's competition.

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

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

EFL Cup round four draw:
Manchester City v Fulham
Bournemouth v Norwich City
Arsenal v Blackpool
Leicester City v Everton or Southampton
West Ham v Tottenham
Middlesbrough v Crystal Palace
Chelsea v Derby County
Burton Albion v Nottingham Forest
