Frank Lampard will take his Derby side to former club Chelsea in the fourth round of the Carabao Cup next month.

The former Blues midfielder, in his first managerial job with the Rams, won every major trophy during 13 years as a player at Stamford Bridge.

Much of that time was spent under Jose Mourinho, whose Manchester United team Lampard knocked out in the previous round this week.

Derby's reward for the penalty shoot-out win at Old Trafford is a trip to Stamford Bridge, where Lampard is the club's all-time leading scorer with 211 goals in all competitions.

Holders Manchester City will host Fulham. Pep Guardiola's side were the first to be pulled out during Saturday night's draw.

That is one of three all-Premier League ties, including a London derby between West Ham and Tottenham, while the winner of Everton against Southampton will face an away tie at Leicester.

Arsenal, runners-up last season, will host League One side Blackpool.

Burton are another League One side still left in and Brewers boss Nigel Clough, whose team are the lowest-ranked remaining in the competition, will welcome his former club Nottingham Forest to the Pirelli Stadium.

Elsewhere, Bournemouth host Norwich and Middlesbrough boss Tony Pulis will face his former club Crystal Palace at the Riverside.

Derby manager Frank Lampard has been charged with improper conduct by the Football Association following his side's Championship defeat to Rotherham on Saturday.

The former Chelsea and England midfielder was sent from the dugout in the 77th minute of the Rams' 1-0 loss at the New York Stadium.

Lampard left his technical area to complain about a decision and was swiftly dismissed by referee Peter Bankes.

County were trailing at the time following a Ryan Manning penalty and were down to 10 men after Tom Lawrence saw red for a late tackle on Richie Towell.

A tweet from the FA Spokesperson account read: "Derby County manager Frank Lampard has been charged following the game against Rotherham United on Saturday [15/09/18].

"It is alleged that his behaviour in the 77th minute amounted to improper conduct. He has until 6pm on Thursday [20/09/18] to respond to the charge."
