Just a fortnight ago, Chelsea were underdogs to face Manchester United in the FA Cup semi-final.
Chelsea defeated Manchester United 3-1 to reach the final, but Arsenal got an even more surprising result in their own semi final clash. Arsenal defeated Manchester City 2-0 to reach the final, despite being rated as underdogs.
Chelsea boss Frank Lampard has now admitted that he has been watching Arsenal’s game against City.
“I wasn’t surprised that they won the game,” he said. “Man City were probably most people’s favourites – they are in pretty much every game they play but I knew with the collective and individual talent Arsenal have that they had the capabilities to win a game like that.
“It’s a game I’ve paid close attention to but every game is different. They’ve had other results recently and played in different formations so we have to be ready for any eventuality but we also have to know that Arsenal are going to be a very tough match.”
