Frank Lampard admitted Manchester United represents a ‘huge test’ for his Chelsea side this weekend following their ‘really good result’ away to PSG in the Champions League. Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s Red Devils secured three points against last year’s runners-up with an outstanding 2-1 win in Paris after Marcus Rashford’s 87th-minute strike at the Parc des Princes.
Asked whether Chelsea can build on the performance against Sevilla ahead of their trip to the Theatre of Dreams, Lampard told BT Sport: “They (Manchester United) might be building on their performance tonight as well! They had a really good result.
“We have to, it’s a long season and we’re in the real early stages of it. As I said before the game, we lost this game last year against Valencia so it’s a much better start for us and it gives us confidence ahead of what’s going to be a difficult group, no matter what way you look at it. ‘But, yeah, league games now ahead of us… Manchester United are a huge test off the back of a very good result for them but we have to go there with belief.”
