Harry Wilson has warned Chelsea that Derby boss Frank Lampard is ready to upset his old club in the EFL, with the youngster stating that there is no reason why Derby can't win.

Chelsea's record goalscorer, Lampard, returns to his former club on Wednesday as his Derby County side take on Chelsea at Stamford Bridge. 

Championship club Derby knocked out Manchester United in the previous round at Old Trafford and Wales international Wilson believes the script is set for another Rams giant-killing.

"It was almost like it was made for him, wasn't it?" Wilson told 'Sky Sports'. 

"I'm sure he'll enjoy going back to a club where he had such a successful career.

"But we'll be going there full of confidence and will play our football looking to get a result. Winning at Old Trafford gave us a lot of confidence, and we're going to Stamford Bridge to get a similar result."

Lampard enjoyed a successful 13 years at Chelsea, making nearly 650 appearances and scoring 211 goals. 

He has also enjoyed his time in the dugout with Derby, guiding 'The Rams' into the play-off places in the Championship. 

"He's been great," said Wilson, 21, who is on a season-long loan from Liverpool.

"I spoke to him on the phone before I went there, and the way he spoke and what he told me about how he wanted his team to play made me realise it was the right club for me.

"Since I've been there I've learned a lot and his coaches help me too. The way we've played in the last month or so has shown how we've progressed as a team."
