Benjamin Mendy was charged with going for a ‘cheap shot’ at Brighton goalie Mathew Ryan after Manchester City’s 2- win.
Mendy, who missed the match through injuries tweeted: “Bullet header” after Dunk unintentionally place the ball past their own keeper.
“I think it’s disrespectful to some fellow professional and that i imagine there’s totally no requirement for it whatsoever.Inches
“There’ll be considered a time throughout the season when Mendy constitutes a mistake and he’ll be available into it.
“He’s reached play and that he could easily get done at some stage this year and someone may want to tweet about him.”
Former City midfielder Lampard agreed, adding: “Why don’t you’ve just got a couple of seconds to make sure that that’s the best factor to state?
But Gerrard was adamant it had been disrespectful.
