Chelsea manager, Frank Lampard thinks his Manchester United counterpart, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer sometimes undergoes extra criticism due to his history at Red Devils.

Solskjaer

once again are under study following a tough week that carried

United

to crash out of the Champions League after a 3-2 loss to RB Leipzig.

United

began with a cheerful mood having ensured a fourth successive Premier League winning at West Ham to climb to sixth in the table.

Still, their weak performance in Germany was expected of a team that has been dogged by inconsistency for much of the season, with performances fluctuating even within matches.

Each loss gets further criticism for

Solskjaer

, with some implying he's not the man to take United ahead.

"

We all have good times, bad times, this job is taxing and the last thing I’d want to do would be to make an opinion on Ole’s position – I think it’d be wrong,"

Lampard

mentioned.

"I suppose I can answer the question - when you’ve played for the club, I think people do look at it with a different viewpoint. I think in certain tough times it can be very casual and very easy just to refer back to the fact you were a player and that’s why you got the job.

"That can be used against you and all you do is try and work against that. Whether it’s myself, Ole, or anyone else in that position – it’s not just us two that have taken that path, there are other managers. That’s kind of just how I feel about it.

"But one thing you can’t do is complain about it – you just get on with your job and I’m sure that’s exactly what Ole is doing behind the scenes as I do every day here."
