Reactions

United’s coach Solskjaer:

“We’ve had semi-finals and now it’s a ‘final’ and we’ve got raise ourselves for that one. We pinpointed this one at Leicester. If we have a chance to go there, we can be delighted we’ve caught up with the points and caught up with the goal difference and given ourselves a fantastic opportunity.

We know we’re playing a difficult team – they are very, very dangerous in different aspects of the game and different things tactically. We’ll be ready.

When we started after lockdown, we had to go for it. We had to go for it for goal difference and had to go for it with points. The effort has been fantastic, the results have been fantastic. Of course, we’d liked to have won against Southampton. When you concede in the last second and here today we’ve conceded at the end of the first half, but we’ve given ourselves a fantastic opportunity on Sunday.”

Chelsea’s coach Lampard:

“We contributed to this game well and on another night, at 4-3, we go on to get our point but now there will be a lot going on on Sunday. What is absolutely important is the players focus on themselves because it is in our own hands, and that is the job I’ll do because we can’t affect what is going on elsewhere.

We have to try to get over the line. We have character in the group, we have quality and we have a good opponent coming and it is on us now.”
