Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has claimed Chelsea boss Frank Lampard’s influence on match officials helped the Blues beat Manchester United in the FA Cup on Sunday.

Speaking to Sky Sports, Solskjaer said: “What did my [son] Noah say the other day? It was 21 fouls and no bookings the other way.

“I don’t want to go into it again, but while you’re at it, Anthony’s on the ball and he [Zouma] kicks through his foot.

“That’s a red card and a sending off. But that’s how small the margins are in football.

“But it seemed that little bit of influencing the officials worked. I don’t want to start criticising because it sounds like it’s sour grapes but it isn’t.”

  1. This comment is an afterthought, is coming so late. Lampard can’t try that with Mourinho, Mike Dean would have been under intense fire.
