Frank Lampard has hit back at Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s claims that Chelsea have the advantage to face United in the FA Cup tie.
Ole had cribbed about Chelsea having extra time to prepare for the FA Cup match, as his habit his. Now it seems Lampard has given him a reality check.
“We have played Saturday, Tuesday this week, they played Monday, Thursday so we have both played two games this week as it stands,” Lampard said.
“We’re in a period where we are playing very regularly and you have to work with the squad as it is but it isn’t about having an advantage or not.
“Sometimes it works in your favour to be playing regularly and ticking over so personally I don’t see it as an advantage.”
On the FA Cup, “We have Manchester United ahead of us and then City or Arsenal, so it is going to be tough,” Lampard said.
“We’re in a semi-final, we know what is in front of us and at this point we are fighting on two fronts as well as the domestic front and a club like Chelsea we always want to win trophies.
“We have done it very well in the modern era and we have another opportunity and it is up to the players to make the best of it on Sunday but we’re up against a very good team in good form.”
