Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has accused Chelsea boss Frank Lampard of influencing referees.

He made the comments in response to Jurgen Klopp’s claims that Manchester United are easily given penalties by referees.

Solskjaer believes Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp is trying to influence referees just as Lampard did before the FA Cup semifinal last season.

“I can’t talk on behalf of other managers, why they say things like this,” said the United boss, when discussing Klopp’s claims.

“Obviously I felt it worked last year in the FA Cup semi because Frank spoke about it. We had a nailed-on penalty that we should have had and didn’t get, so maybe it’s a way of influencing referees.

“I don’t know but I don’t worry about that. When they foul our players it’s a penalty. It’s just when it’s inside the box.”
