Frank Lampard suffered his first domestic cup defeat as Chelsea manager to Manchester United. The Blues lost the match 2-1 and Lampard admits that Chelsea were too slow on the ball.
“The second goal doesn’t come into the equation because that’s just a bolt from the blue. No team can stop that.”
“In terms of the way we weren’t at our best – we were a little slow with our passing in the first half and when a team lines up as Newcastle did here with five and two in front of them, if you don’t break the lines and move it’s tough.”
“We were a little that way in the first half and in the second we weren’t clinical enough. We created chances, changed our game and looked really bright.”
“I loved the first half an hour of the second half and I thought we deserved our goal.
“It (Rashford’s free-kick) was great technique. We’ve seen Marcus Rashford hit balls with that technique before and whoever you are in the world they don’t always go into the top corner, they sometimes go elsewhere.
“But you can’t take it away from him that it was a great strike,” he finished.
