Boss' respect for Lampard

since the Easter weekend. Sir Alex feels the latter was below par in the two FA Cup clashes against Chelsea but believes he would now benefit from a return.

“Tom hit a quiet spell and I wonder if he maybe needed a little break at that point,” pondered the boss. “He’s going to be involved on Sunday without doubt and he’ll play before the end of the season. I played him and Alex Buttner in the U21s the other night as they needed a game. Tom is a very good player, a good footballer with a good brain and good energy.

“Anderson came on and made a difference last week at Arsenal. He really opened the game up for us and will definitely be involved on Sunday. I may even start him.”
