Chelsea had an easy ride in the League Cup third round clash as the Blues defeated Grimsby Town 7-1 at Stamford Bridge to reach the Carabao Cup fourth round.
However, it wasn’t an easy game for Manchester United in their Carabao Cup third round clash with Rochdale. After a 1-1 draw, both sides had to settle it out in penalties, with Manchester United finally scaling through.
Both sides will face each other in the fourth round of the competition.
A reporter told Lampard: “Frank you’ve just drawn Man United!…”
An amused Lampard responded: “Have we?!…” before going to ask if it was home or away. The Chelsea boss was relieved to find out it was a home draw.
Lampard will definitely be targeting revenge against Manchester United this time having received a 4-0 bashing at Old Trafford in our opening game of the season.
The Chelsea boss said: “It’s a big draw, two big teams and I’m pleased we’re at home. We’ll see.
“I think a lot can happen in football in a short time. The next round is not coming tomorrow. We have to respect the fact they have good players.
“They beat us 4-0… so I’m certainly not going to stand here and talk Man Utd down.
“It’s going to be a tough game, and the beauty of what we did on Wednesday night was make the game look pretty easy.
“But these games can be tough and I’d rather, from a distance and having not watched the game, give Rochdale credit for taking them all the way. Man Utd will bring a strong team here.”
