Carabao Cup: Why Chelsea lost to Manchester United – Lampard

Chelsea manager, Frank Lampard has revealed why his side lost 2-1 to Manchester United in the Carabao Cup on Wednesday.

Lampard blamed it all on their failure to create enough chances in the first half of the game.

Marcus Rashford opened scoring from the spot after Daniel James was brought down in the box.

His effort was equalized by Batshuayi who made a brilliant run before converting from outside the box.

A stunning free-kick from Marcus Rashford saw him get a brace that ended the game 2-1.

Speaking after the game, Lampard told BBC Radio 5 Live: “There weren’t many chances in the first half. In the second half, we showed the energy I wanted. We created chances and dominated the game.

“They got a bolt out of the blue to win the game. It’s an amazing goal, you can’t do anything about that. We felt like we were going on to win the game at that stage.

“[The winning run ending was] always going to happen. You can’t go on forever. Even [Manchester] City and Liverpool lose at some point. We changed the team a lot today, made a lot of changes. I thought we were the better team in general play.”
