FA Cup 2020 Semifinal: Frank Lampard Wants VAR to Work in Chelsea’s Favour Against Manchester United

London, July 18: Frank Lampard feels Manchester United have been getting favourable decisions from Virtual Assistant Referee (VAR) in recent matches and hopes it gives decision in Chelsea’s favour during the upcoming FA Cup semifinal between the two teams on Sunday.

Chelsea have been defeated by Manchester United three times already this season (twice in league and once in Carabao Cup) and Lampard hopes he can end his personal rut against Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s troops at Wembley Stadium. ARS vs MCI Dream11 Prediction in FA Cup 2019–20 Semi-Final: Tips to Pick Best Team for Arsenal vs Manchester City Football Match.

“It would be nice if VAR worked in our favour in this one, I guess. Fair play, we’ve lost three and that’s just a fact. I’m not into revenge. I just want to win the game on Sunday and against a very good team,” Chelsea manager Lampard told reporters as per The Guardian.

“It was very much a changed team in the Carabao Cup and I still felt we were the better team, but you lose. Then in the league we had a good first half, missed opportunities and they take theirs.

“You have to respect the fact they are a good team and we can all see that in their recent form, but I’m not overly concerned about the games that have gone by. I just want to win the one that’s in front of us,” he added.

Lampard also stopped short of being critical of the VAR decisions that have gone United’s way in recent matches. The Red Devils have already been awarded 13 penalties this term, which is a joint Premier League record. He warned his team that similar fate awaits them in the upcoming clash if they aren’t careful against the likes of Bruno Fernandes and others.

“They have to be careful because when players of such high level, quality and speed of the Manchester United forwards travel quickly you have to move your feet and not dive in,” Lampard said.

“That’s an important part of defending at any point in time. But when you understand the qualities of the opposition, with players like that.

“And (Bruno) Fernandes, to be fair, because he’s very clever in his movement. We saw that at Aston Villa to make something feel like a penalty where maybe it even isn’t. The players don’t have to give that. As a player we can talk about VAR decisions and whether they’re right or wrong but if a player is going to dangle a leg and not move their feet then you obviously do leave yourself open to penalties, VAR or no VAR.”

Mumbai, August 8: There will be no dip in M.S. Dhoni’s form when the glitzy Indian Premier League (IPL) caravan touches base in the UAE, feels former India batsman Sanjay Manjrekar. Manjrekar also said he had a chat with the iconic former India captain on the sidelines of current skipper Virat Kohli’s wedding, and the dashing wicketkeeper batsman had said as long as he is outrunning the fastest man in the Indian team, he will continue playing.

Dhoni will lead Chennai Super Kings (CSK) in the 13th edition of the cash-rich league which will be played in Dubai, Abu Dhabi and Sharjah after it was postponed in March due to the COVID-19 crisis. The 39-year old has not been in action since the 2019 World Cup semi-final where India lost to New Zealand. MS Dhoni & Team Get Into ‘Habibi’ Mode As Chennai Super Kings Gear Up For IPL 2020 (See Pic).

Speaking on Star Sports’ show Cricket Connected, Manjrekar said: “I think he is going to be very good and one of the reasons that he is so successful and so consistent in the IPL as a batsman as opposed to international is that he knows that there are about four to five bowlers to handle.

“And there are some good ones and there are some not so good ones in the IPL. In international, you have got five quality bowlers, so he’s so good at picking out those guys and going after them.

“And with people like (Sachin) Tendulkar, Dhoni, these are champion cricketers. Once they are on the public stage, you will never see Dhoni ever on a public stage, like a cricket field, looking slightly unfit or unable to sprint or run.” Manjrekar said he caught up with Dhoni during Kohli’s wedding and the Ranchi man was oozing confidence.

“During Virat Kohli’s wedding, I had a little corner time with him and he said that as long as I am beating the fastest sprinter in the team, I am going to consider myself fit enough to be playing international cricket or playing high-level cricket.

“So, as a batter, with M.S. Dhoni in the IPL, I don’t see much difference. In fact, the conditions that we have, I keep saying, is just perfect for Dhoni, where it’s going to be about the mind and not just power hitting.”

Akhtar said that it was the first time he had done so on purpose and he apologised to the former Indian captain after that. “I think I had bowled a 8-9 over spell in Faisalabad.

“It was the first time in my life I had bowled a beamer purposely. I shouldn’t have done it. I regretted it a lot. He was playing so well and the wickets were so slow. However fast I was bowling, he kept on hitting. I think I got frustrated.” Shoaib Akhtar Reveals he Bowled Beamer Purposely to MS Dhoni During India Tour of Pakistan 2006.

Dhoni had scored his first-ever Test century in what was a run feast of a match that ended in a draw. He scored 148 off 153 balls to help India overhaul Pakistan’s first innings total of 588 with India scoring 603.
