Manchester United are a very good team - Frank Lampard

Manchester United are a very good team - Frank Lampard

Chelsea boss Frank Lampard is aware of the quality in Manchester United squad but wants his team to only focus on getting things done.

The race for the top four is getting tougher as Leicester [3rd place) is only one point above Chelsea [4th place] place and Manchester United [5th place] just two points behind.

With five matches remaining Frank Lampard is aware things will keep getting tougher and that Manchester will look to catch up and try to overtake them to get in the fourth position. But the Chelsea manager wants his players to ignore Manchester United and just focus on their own games.

'I think every game is going to be pressure now,' Lampard said after the game against Watford

'West Ham was pressure because we knew we could go third. It's a different kind of pressure but it's still the same in how you focus on the game and job at hand.'

'You cannot get too caught up in what everyone does at the moment. We did that tonight. There was no nonsense. The mentality was right. We started brightly and we carried on and got the small details of the game right at both ends of the pitch, which I was happy with.'

'It is not a comparison to get too caught up in,' Lampard added

'They are a very good team; we know that. The individuals that they have, the squad, the coaches that they have. We can only respect that.'

'I watched their game early and with the individual quality when you look across their frontline you see two players on 20 goals and Mason Greenwood doing what he is doing scoring regularly.'

'[Bruno] Fernandes and [Paul] Pogba in midfield, the signing of Harry Maguire. They are a really strong outfit. We know that and the fact we are two points ahead we have to be happy about.'

'We know it is going to be contested right until the end of the season with the form that they are in. With respect to Manchester United and the teams around us, we have to focus on ourselves and try to keep picking up results. That will be the main importance to us.'
