Chelsea director, Frank Lampard, has cautioned his players to be careful about Bruno Fernandes in front of Sunday's FA Cup semi-last. 

The Blues take on Manchester United at Wembley Stadium, with a spot in the last against Arsenal or Manchester City in question. 

Joined have had a progression of Video Assistant Referees (VAR) choices go their way as of late. 

Against Aston Villa this month, Fernandes won a punishment in spite of replays indicating he started contact with Ezri Konsa. 

Lampard has cautioned his safeguards to be cautious against the Portugal midfielder. 

"They must be. Since when players of such significant level, quality and speed of the Manchester United advances travel rapidly, you need to move your feet and not make a plunge on them. 

"You have to comprehend the characteristics of the restriction, with players like that. Fernandes is smart in his development. We saw that at Aston Villa to cause something to feel like a punishment where perhaps it even isn't. 

"As a player, we can discuss VAR choices and whether they're correct or wrong. In any case, if a player will dangle a leg and not move their feet then you clearly leave yourself open to punishments, VAR or no VAR," Lampard told a virtual public interview.
