Lampard Warns Man Utd: 'I Won't Take Game Lightly'

Chelsea boss Frank Lampard has warned Manchester United ahead of Wednesday's Carabao Cup meeting: "I won't take this game lightly."

United handed Lampard a cruel lesson on his competitive debut as Chelsea manager - thrashing the Blues 4-0 on the Premier League opening day - but the sides have endured contrasting fortunes in the top-flight since.

Chelsea are seven points and three spots above United after 10 games in fourth and have now won seven games in a row across all competitions.

Although Lampard hinted he may make changes for the fourth-round tie, he insisted his team will fight for every trophy in his first year at the helm.

"I won't take this game lightly even if I make changes," Lampard said.

"If players do step out of the line up with a view to the coming weeks, it's about the big picture. I understand how players are but those who start will give everything.

"[The 4-0 defeat to United] feels a million miles away but I'm not disregarding it. They hurt us four times in a game we played particularly well in."
