Chelsea midfielder Frank Lampard has dismissed Manchester United fans' claims they're disadvantaged because of Wayne Rooney's injury problems.

Lampard reckons the Old Trafford side won't be able to use the injury to their striker as an excuse if they don't clinch their fourth straight title.

"It's a boost that Wayne could miss the final two games," said Lampard.

"But we've lost Essien, we've lost Bosingwa, we've lost players like Joe Cole for parts of the season. So it all evens itself out."
