The former Chelsea FC star has been making a solid start to his managerial career after he was appointed as Derby’s new boss in the summer.
Lampard led his side to a thrilling penalty shootout win over Manchester United at Old Trafford last week after a 2-2 draw with the Red Devils.
And the reward for the former England international was a fourth-round clash against his former employers Chelsea FC at Stamford Bridge.
The tie will be played in west London on the week of 30 October, and the former Chelsea FC midfielder has admitted that he cannot wait to take his team to Stamford Bridge and line up in the stadium’s dugout for the first time as a manager.
Lampard is quoted as saying by Metro: “It will be very special to go back to Stamford Bridge.
“It was my home and my club for 13 years and the opportunity to go back and see the fans and the people behind the scenes is an incredible occasion for me.
“It’s a club that took me in. I moved across London from a so-called rival and they took me in instantly.
“I was fortunate enough to spend successful years there and it was a family. It still feels that way but the club moves on.”
Derby County are currently placed in ninth place in the Championship table as they look to try and win promotion to the Premier League for next season.
They have won five, drawn one and lost four of their first 10 games in the league under their new boss, who has given up his punditry role on BT Sport to focus on his managerial career.
Meanwhile, Lampard’s old team Chelsea FC have been clicking into gear quickly under new manager Maurizio Sarri.
The Blues have won five and drawn two of their opening seven Premier League games to leave them two points off top spot in the title race after a brilliant start to the new campaign.
An in-form Eden Hazard has helped Chelsea FC to step their game up this season, and the Blues booked their place in the fourth round of the League Cup thanks to their thrilling 2-1 win over Liverpool FC at Anfield last week.
Next up for the Blues is a trip to Southampton in the Premier League on Sunday afternoon.
