What Lampard said to Solskjaer on Man Utd and Chelsea’s tough watch

Frank Lampard had a sly word with Ole Gunnar Solskjaer during Chelsea's 0-0 draw against Manchester United.

The Blues left a wet and windy Old Trafford with a point after a defensive display from both teams.

Neither side looked threatening and looked more concerned with not losing rather than winning the match.

Remarkably, it was just the second 0-0 under Lampard during his time in charge at Stamford Bridge – the first coming just days prior against Sevilla in the Champions League.

But it was a noticeable improvement on Chelsea's last league visit to United – Lampard's first game at the helm – which ended 4-0 to the hosts.

Nevertheless, for watchers at home it was hardly a spectacle – with neither side looking likely to find a winner.

And Lampard would agree, even telling Solskjaer as much during the 90 minutes.

The two could be seen exchanging words, and when asked what he told his counterpart, Lampard said: "It wasn't a classic, was it? I said that.

"If I was at half-five waiting for United and Chelsea, and you're a neutral, you want more.

"But I think at the start of this season I'm watching games, tough games.

"People are finding the same and we have to be humble to that and work and get better."

This is not the first time Lampard has traded words with the opposition, though this time appeared to be a lot more amicable.

There has already been clashes with Jurgen Klopp and Jose Mourinho as Chelsea still look to put together some consistent form.

After six matches, the Blues are sixth after two wins after a transfer window that saw over £200m spent.

With so many new faces, Lampard is managing a huge squad that needs time to gel during a period where the games are coming thick and fast.

And Chelsea are back in action soon – travelling to Russia to take on Krasnodar in the Champions League on Wednesday.

There will be not much time on the training pitch afterwards, too, with a Saturday afternoon kick-off against Burnley to follow.
