Frank Lampard has said that the FA Cup will have no bearing on the PL table.
The Blues are set to meet Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s Manchester United in the FA Cup tonight. Chelsea have two tough games after this against Wolves and Liverpool! Lampard however, feels they are not going to be dependant on tonight’s results.
“I genuinely think it has no bearing,” the Chelsea boss told the media. “This is a competition in itself and we all know what is at stake, which is a place in the final.
“The next two games will come around very quickly after that, and each of us will deal with them in our own way.
“Obviously the physical demands of the game will [have] a small effect on the Wednesday game we play next week [against Liverpool], but we will have to deal with that and get on with it. Other than that, I’m not sure it has much bearing.”
“These are two big teams going against each other,” the former England international said.
“We all know that their front three are playing very, very well. The amount of goals they’ve put together as a front three has been amazing, so we have to understand that and work against it.
“But they do have a strong team throughout. Their midfield is functioning really well now – the introduction of Fernandes gave them a huge boost in January, I think everyone has seen that.
“It will need a complete performance to challenge Manchester United.”
