Chelsea manager Frank Lampard has claimed there’s more to come from his side after they booked an FA Cup final against Arsenal with a 3-1 win over Manchester United on Sunday.

Goals from Olivier Giroud, Mason Mount and an own-goal by Harry Maguire coupled with poor goalkeeping from David de Gea gave the Blues a deserved victory over us. 

The Blues Manager had this to say about his side’s performance in his post-match interview. 
“With what we do in the summer, there will be more to come,” Lampard said.

“We want to win the final. We want to close the gap.”

“We are working towards something,” Lampard said. “It doesn’t come easy. We have seen that with other teams in recent years.

“It is step by step. We have shown lots of good stuff this year but we have to focus on the three finals we have – two league games and Arsenal in the FA Cup.

“Three games won’t define the progress we have made but we are at the business end.”

Lampard was full of praise for Giroud – who was rated as man of the match – as the veteran Frenchman scored for the sixth time in his last seven starts to open the scoring.

“He sets an amazing example,” Lampard said.

“Take the story of his season. Tammy Abraham was doing well, Olivier didn’t get many opportunities. He kept training.

“He could have left in January, but didn’t. He had the most positive attitude possible. He is so easy to speak to because he is so professional.

“I am not surprised. He has been great.

“Young players should see in him everything it needs to be a professional, work ethic, humility, he is a team player.

“Now he is getting the rewards he deserves and I am getting a player who is scoring regularly.”
