Lampard puts Wembley defeat out of mind as he targets next FA Cup final

It is a shorter gap than usual between the previous season’s climax and the next third round but having missed out against Arsenal who won 2-1, Frank Lampard is not dwelling on that Wembley outing.

‘I’ve been in this game long enough and lost semis and finals and games along the way,’ he says.

‘For it [last season’s final] to be in the back of my mind six months later would be the wrong course. It was what it was, we had a cup final, we went 1-0 up, Christian Pulisic went clean through at 1-1 and tore him hamstring before he shot, we had a player sent off which was a harsh decision, but that game is gone.
