All ties will be played on the week commencing September 24, with Liverpool and Chelsea’s meeting coming days before their Premier League match at Stamford Bridge on September 29.

Elsewhere, reigning champions Manchester City head to Oxford United of Sky Bet League One.

Lampard played under Mourinho at Chelsea – winning the 2005 trophy together – but now the Derby boss will be tasked with knocking his former manager out of the competition.

Last season’s runners-up Arsenal play host to Sky Bet Championship Brentford in a London derby.

Tottenham will host Watford, and have applied to the EFL board for special dispensation to play the tie at Stadium MK.

Everton play Southampton and Wolves take on Leicester in all-Premier League ties.
