Viewers Were Absolutely Loving Frank Lampard As A Pundit During Chelsea v United

Rio Ferdinand, Steven Gerrard, Thierry Henry, Alan Shearer, Michael Owen, even Paul Scholes...the list of former Premier League stars having a crack at punditry seems to go on forever, with the verdict on how much sense each pundit speaks differing greatly depending on who you talk to.

Frank Lampard was on punditry duty for the BBC at Monday night's FA Cup clash between Man United and Chelsea at Stamford Bridge and he (generally) went down a treat. Lampard speaks intelligently about the game, and alongside Alan Shearer and Phil Neville proved himself to be balanced and insightful. In particular the point he made about Ander Herrera's sending-off - that Michael Oliver was perhaps affected by the fact he had just told off Phil Jones and Chris Smalling for repeated hacking of Eden Hazard - was a well-made and insightful one.

Some of the praise for Lampard came alongside fairly harsh criticism of Neville, however...

This is Herman Munster, by the way. Slightly unfair on Phil.
