Chelsea warns ManU ahead of Carabao Cup meet


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.
