MOST COMMENTED

Frank Lampard scored his landmark 200th goal for Chelsea on Sunday as the Blues cruised to a 2-0 win against West Ham United at Stamford Bridge. The achievement leaves the 34-year-old just two goals shy of Bobby Tambling’s Chelsea record of 202 goals for the club.

Afterward, Lampard described Sunday’s game as "one of my best. Obviously, winning the Champions League and championships are the best, but personally getting 200 goals for the club, I never thought I would touch that so I am pleased to get it.” The Chelsea vice captain insisted that surpassing Tambling’s record is not top of mind for him. "Everyone keeps talking about the goalscoring record, I would rather people kept quiet. The important thing is trying to score goals to win games. We are in good form and everyone is at it. There is a good feeling around the place and we need to carry it on until the end of the season."

Even West Ham coach Sam Allardyce hailed the Chelsea legend for his achievement. "Frank Lampard is the ghost in the box that nobody seems to see,” he said. “Massive credit to him for 200 goals in his career. A quality ball and a quality finish. Sometimes you can't defend the quality they've got."
