Frank Lampard today set a new record for Chelsea, scoring 203 goals — the most number of goals ever scored by a Chelsea player in the history of the club.
Lampard scored a left-footed shot against Aston Villa in the 61st minute to equal the record set by Bobby Tambling. Then late in the game at Villa Park, Lampard slotted in a winner for Chelsea and his record-breaking goal. The England midfielder ran over to the corner of the ground to celebrate in front of the Chelsea supporters, many of whom invaded the pitch to hug Lampard.
The goal by Lampard ensured that Chelsea have qualified for next season’s UEFA Champions League. Aston Villa, meanwhile, will have to do it all again next Sunday to stay in the Premier League.
Congratulations to Frank Lampard on achieving an incredible record today.
