Frank Lampard fires warning to Chelsea about four Man Utd players ahead of FA Cup clash

Chelsea boss Frank Lampard has warned his team about four Manchester United players ahead of the FA Cup semi-final clash on Sunday.

Lampard’s side face Solskjaer’s Manchester United at Wembley on Sunday, with the winner of the match facing either Arsenal or Manchester City in the final that will take place on August 1.

Chelsea go into the game sitting third in the League but just one point above Leicester City and Manchester United, the team in form in England.

They have not lost since the campaign resumed last month and Lampard is wary of the threat of their in-form front three of Marcus Rashford, Anthony Martial and Mason Greenwood and Bruno Fernandes.

‘We know Manchester United are playing well,’ Frank Lampard said at his pre-match conference on Friday.

‘They have a very potent front three, probably the most potent front three in the country on pure numbers anyway and obviously Fernandes has made a huge difference since arriving in January.

‘You see the strength that’s brought to their team with individual quality but we know that. We have to be confident in ourselves, deal with their threats and worry about us as well.’

Speaking about Sunday’s FA Cup game, Liverpool legend Mark Lawrenson told BBC Sport: ‘United have the edge when these two go head to head, and I think they will beat the Blues for the fourth time this season.

‘United’s improvement is not just down to the fact their front three are playing well, but it definitely helps that they are finishing off so much of the good work done by the rest of their team.

‘Chelsea are dangerous when they come forward too, of course. I just think United carry more of a threat, and they are more solid at the other end too.’
