What Chelsea must do to beat Manchester United

Ahead of today’s FA Cup game against Manchester United at Wembley, Chelsea boss Frank Lampard has revealed cutting out individual errors is the key to beating Manchester United.

Lampard said: “We always work on it to be fair, there’s never a neglect of defensive work in the game.

“It has to be constant and repeated regularly. A big problem of ours this season is that we’ve been committing individual errors in games.

“Sometimes in games where we’ve been comfortable, it has been a counter-attack or cross into our box, when we haven’t really had to be defending our box that regularly through the season.

“Certain games are different to that, like Sheffield United, where we just didn’t play well as a team.

“But we’ve had individual errors in key moments that have changed the face of the result slightly, and it has been too regular.

“We will have to be very much on top of ourselves when it comes to the quality of opposition we have got in Manchester United.

“No matter what, they can hurt any defence or any team with the individual quality they have.

“It was good to get a clean sheet against Norwich.

“This will be a different animal and we will have to defend very well.”
