"I won't take game lightly" - Lampard warns Solskjaer ahead of the Carabao cup tie between Chelsea and Manchester United
Chelsea manager Frank Lampard has sent a warning to Manchester United ahead of Wednesday’s Carabao cup match.
United thrashed Chelsea 4-0 at Old Trafford in Lampard’s first competitive game as Chelsea manager - but the two clubs have gone through different fates in the Premier League since.
The Stamford bridge side are seven points clear of the Red Devils and have now won seven consecutive games in all competitions.
Despite saying he will make some changes, Frank Lampard insisted that Chelsea will be approaching the match with all seriousness as they look to fight for all trophy in his first year at the wheel.
"I won't take this game lightly even if I make changes," Lampard said.
"If players do step out of the line up with a view to the coming weeks, it's about the big picture. I understand how players are but those who start will give everything.
"[The 4-0 defeat to United] feels a million miles away but I'm not disregarding it. They hurt us four times in a game we played particularly well in."
