Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s boys go to Stamford Bridge for their first game after the winter break hoping to close the hole on fourth-place Chelsea.

“I think they are strong anyway and will be stronger because they’ve done good business,”
“I think Fernandes is a top player, he scores goals, I know all about his record and that.
“We have to take that into account and he will be wanting to make his mark on the Premier League in general. I think they are a top team.”
“Again, they are gunning for the top four, the size of club they are. We won’t be under any illusions, it’s going to be a tough game but we have to trust in ourselves, be confident at home, play well and try and win the game.” Lampard told Sky Sports.
