Chelsea face Derby in the fourth round of the EFL Cup on Wednesday evening.
Frank Lampard returns to Stamford Bridge for the first time as a manager after enjoying 13 glittering years as a player there. He is sure to receive a glowing reception from the home fans but will be hoping to send them home unhappy after seeing off Premier League Manchester United in the previous round.
