United beat Chelsea 4-0 at Old Trafford on the opening day, but Solskjaer admits that it was not a true reflection of the contest and expects another difficult game against Lampard’s side who are on a run of seven straight wins.
He said: ‘I think Frank has done a good job because the performance against us was good. The result was bad. We held our hands up then as well and said 4-0 was flattering.
‘We got pegged back and they pressed us but we scored two goals within a minute, the second and third, which decided the game for us. But we didn’t think we were 4-0 better than them. It is going to be an interesting game. We don’t make it easy for ourselves in the cups with the draws.’
