Chelsea meet Manchester United again, as Ole Gunnar Solskjaer looks to do the double over Frank Lampard. This time, it’s the fourth round of the Carabao Cup.
Both manager’s have met once already this season. With Manchester United and Ole Gunnar Solskjaer emerging winners of that fixture, 4-0 it ended at Old Trafford.
However, fast forward few months later. And it’s Chelsea who seem a little more convincing on the field of play. With the West London blues having dispatched third round opponents Grimsby Town 7-1, as opposed to Man Utd’s qualification through penalties (5-3) after a 1-1 draw in normal time.
Both managers would definitely be looking forward to another round, as Lampard hopes to get his revenge, and Solskjaer hoping to get another over the manager in his debut season at the Stamford bridge.

“If you want to win it then you have to beat the best.” Solskjaer told MUTV. “We played them first game of the season this year, we played them in the FA Cup last year.
“It slots nicely into a couple of weeks with loads of travelling!That’s how it is and we’ve got to make the best out of it. I’m sure we are because that’s the type of group this is, that’s the type of club we are.
“We’re not gonna say, ‘Ahh!’ – we’re going to relish it and look forward to it.”
“A big draw, pleased we’re at home,’ Lampard said. “We’ll see.
“We have to respect them, it’s going to be a tough game, you have to give Rochdale credit for taking them all the way.”
