Frank Lampard sets Chelsea scoring record

Frank Lampard etched his name into the history books by deposing Bobby Tambling as Chelsea's record goalscorer with a match-winning brace against Aston Villa.

The England midfielder cancelled out Christian Benteke’s opener with a sweet left-footed effort 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, a landmark forged over 12 years.
