Chelsea coach, Frank Lampard

Chelsea coach Frank Lampard has attempted to put aside the 2-1 Carabao Cup defeat to Manchester United by insisting the club is more focused on other competitions, Goal reports.

The Blues were knocked out of the tournament at Stamford Bridge by the Red Devils at the round-of-16 stage, ending a seven-match winning streak, with Marcus Rashford scoring before and after Michy Batshuayi's equaliser.

When asked if it was a blow to be eliminated from the competition, Lampard praised his team's recent performances and made it clear he had rotated his squad with eyes on other matches.

"We've had seven wins on the trot," Lampard said. "We've had taxing games in the Champions League. We want to get into the next stage of that."

"Our form in the league has been really good. They're the priorities. But we want to win matches and give everything.

"Today, I had to look at my squad and who deserves minutes. The young players. The competition has an element of that for us."

Despite the loss, Lampard was pleased with the performances of several youngsters, as the likes of Marc Guehi, Reece James and Billy Gilmour got a run-out.
