Frank Lampard takes subtle dig at Bruno Fernandes and questions ‘strange’ Man Utd VAR decisions

The Chelsea legend will plan to make a huge stride towards winning his first bit of significant trophy as the club's supervisor by progressing to the FA Cup final to the detriment of an Ole Gunnar Solskjaer trained side, who stretched out their unbeaten to 19 matches in all rivalries following Thursday's triumph over Crystal Palace at Selhurst Park.

While the improvement United has made lately is unquestionable, it has not gotten away Lampard that their adversaries for a main four spot in the Premier League have profited by a few profoundly disputable choices. 


Against the Eagles, they were fortunate to escape without surrendering a penalty for Victor Lindelof's awkward contest on Wilfried Zaha which happened only two minutes before Marcus Rashford put his side ahead.

Seven days sooner, in the interim, United were significantly increasingly lucky to be granted their very own spot-kick when Fernandes thought up to win a penalty after it showed up it was he who made contact with Aston Villa's Ezri Konsa. 

On the requirement for his safeguards to additional mindful on Sunday at Wembley, Lampard stated: 'They must be. Since when players of such elevated level, quality, and speed of the Manchester United advances make a trip rapidly you need to move your feet and not make a plunge on them.


Fernandes is smart in his development. We saw that at Aston Villa to cause something to feel like a penalty where perhaps it even isn't. 'As a player, we can discuss VAR choices and whether they're correct or wrong'.
