Frank Lampard admitted he was relieved Chelsea were handed a home tie with Manchester United after the side’s 7-1 victory over Grimsby.
‘A big draw, pleased we’re at home. We’ll see,’ the Chelsea manager said.
‘We have to respect them, it’s going to be a tough game, you have to give Rochdale credit for taking them all the way.’
Asked for his reaction to the draw, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer said: ‘If you want to win it then you have to beat the best.
‘We played them first game of the season this year, we played them in the FA Cup last year.
‘It slots nicely into a couple of weeks with loads of travelling!’
