Top four race: What Lampard said after United win


As the race for the top-four finish gets hotter, Chelsea boss, Frank Lampard hailed Man United after their Saturday win.

Both Chelsea and Man United recorded wins on Saturday which makes the race for a Champions League spot more interesting.

The Blues defeated Watford 3-0 while the Red Devils slammed Bournemouth 5-2 earlier on Saturday.

The wins now keep Man United 5th on the table with two points below Chelsea.

Frank Lampard has reacted to the wins by hailing the manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer team but noted that his team can still finish in the Champions League spot if they remain focus to win the remaining games left.

The Chelsea legend noted that every game left will come with a level of pressure but that will not be an issue if his team can maintain a level of focus and have the strong mentality to deliver on each game.

Frank Lampard will always give respect to Man United and other teams around them but that will not mean losing the Champions League spot to them in any way.

With five matches remaining, it is still unclear, the teams that will join Liverpool and Man City for a Champions League ticket while the same applies to the Europa League.
