Frank Lampard has warned his defenders to be wary of the likes of Bruno Fernandes following a spate of controversial VAR decisions that have gone in favour of Manchester United in recent weeks.
The Chelsea legend will hope to take a significant step towards winning his first piece of major silverware as the club’s manager by advancing to the FA Cup final at the expense of an Ole Gunnar Solskjaer coached side, who extended their unbeaten run to 19 matches in all competitions following Thursday’s victory over Crystal Palace at Selhurst Park.
While the improvement United have made in recent weeks is indisputable, it has not escaped Lampard that their rivals for a top-four place in the Premier League have benefited from several highly controversial decisions.
Against the Eagles they were lucky to escape without conceding a penalty for Victor Lindelof’s clumsy challenge on Wilfried Zaha which occurred just two minutes before Marcus Rashford fired his side ahead. (Metro)
