Lampard breaks goals record as Chelsea beat Villa

Frank Lampard etched his name into the history books by deposing Bobby Tambling as Chelsea’s record goalscorer with a match-winning brace in the 2-1 victory against Aston Villa at Villa Park.

The England midfielder, restored to the starting XI ahead of Wednesday’s Europa League final, cancelled out Christian Benteke’s opener with a sweet left-footed effort just after the hour mark before sealing the points – and the record – with close-range effort three minutes from time.

That left him with 203 career goals for the Blues in 12 years at Stamford Bridge.
