Frank Lampard has hit back at Jose Mourinho’s criticism of his team selection against Manchester United by insisting that he doesn’t care what pundits say.

Mourinho, working for Sky Sports, said Lampard could have picked a team with more “know how” instead of selecting youngsters Mason Mount and Tammy Abraham for the 4-0 defeat at Old Trafford.

But Lampard rejected his former manager’s claim by insisting more experienced players like N'Golo Kante, Olivier Giroud and Willian were not available to start.

“I can’t drag people out of the medical room, whether they’re experienced or not,” said Lampard after his first competitive game as Chelsea boss.

“The players we played today, and on the bench, are the players we have. We were clearly the better team for 45 or even 60 minutes but we made individual errors that led to four goals from five shots. That’s the harsh reality.

“I don’t have to be too concerned about what anyone else says – the pundits – but what is clear is the squad is the squad we’ve got and I believe in it.

“Had we gone in at half-time 2-1 or 3-1 up, which we should have done, the game would have been completely different.” (ESPN)
