Chelsea started the season in unusual circumstances as the Blues were beaten 4-0 by Manchester United in our first game of the season at Old Trafford.

Chelsea boss Frank Lampard insisted at the time that United were lucky to beat his side by that high margin, insisting that the scoreline flattered the home team.

Ahead of Wednesday’s Carabao Cup game with Manchester United at Stamford Bridge, Lampard has revealed that his side isn’t thinking of that defeat suffered at Old Trafford back in August.

“We’ve said nothing about that,” he admitted in his press conference. “It feels like a million miles away.

“I’m not disregarding it because when you play against a top team like Manchester United, with top players, they can hurt you in moments and they did it to us four times in a game that we performed pretty well in. I don’t think the context of that is going to be hugely relevant tomorrow night.”

Lampard also revealed that he will be making changes to his squad that will play tomorrow, but ruled out Antonio Rudiger and N’Golo Kante from the game due to injury.
