Gian-killers Derby County taking on Chelsea, with manager Frank Lampard returning to Stamford Bridge is the pick of the Carabao Cup fourth round ties, with the draw made on Saturday night.

In addition, there will be an all Premier League London derby as West Ham host Tottenham Hotspur, while Arsenal entertain Blackpool.

The third round of the Carabao Cup certainly whet fans' appetites for the fourth round after a number of giants fell and a host of underdogs rose to the occasion.

The biggest shock came from Old Trafford where five-time winners Manchester United were stunned by Championship Derby County after losing 8-7 on penalties to Frank Lampard's young side. United weren't the only top flight side to be knocked out by lower league opposition, with Burnley losing 2-1 to League One outfit Burton Albion having taken a first half lead.

There was a clash of two giants at Anfield where Liverpool hosted Chelsea in a blockbuster third round tie, with the latter coming back from behind to snatch a 2-1 win and secure their place in the fourth round, whilst Tottenham progressed after a dramatic shootout win over Premier League rivals Watford at Stadium MK.

Other Premier League outfits including Manchester City, Arsenal, West Ham, Crystal Palace, Leicester City, Fulham and Bournemouth all secured their passages, whilst a number of lower tier clubs also snuck their way into the draw for the next round having taken place on Saturday night.

Saturday night's fourth-round draw certainly didn't disappoint, setting up a highly-anticipated clash between London rivals West Ham and Tottenham, whilst current holders Manchester City hosting fellow top flight outfit Fulham and Frank Lampard returns to Stamford Bridge for the first time as a manager when his Derby side take on his former playing club Chelsea.
