Lampard breaks goal scoring record

Chelsea came from behind to take all three points at Aston Villa, and all but secure Champions League football for next season.

The win means only a combination a huge loss for the Blues and an equally emphatic victory for Tottenham Hotspur would halt Chelsea’s progress, whilst Arsenal would also need to win their final two games.

Saturday’s game saw Frank Lampard overtake Bobby Tambling’s goal scoring record of 202 goals for the club.

Christian Benteke gave Paul Lambert’s men a first half lead before Lampard levelled just past the hour mark, and the veteran midfielder had the final say when he rounded off an impressive move to give his side all three points, and rewrite the record books.

The club will now turn their attention to Wednesday evenings Europa League final against Benfica in Amsterdam.

Meanwhile, David Luiz has told the Metro that Wayne Rooney would be welcome at Stamford Bridge.

The England international has handed in a transfer request at Manchester United; something which has been confirmed by outgoing manager Sir Alex Ferguson.

Elsewhere, Jose Mourinho reportedly wants to take German international midfielder Sami Khedira with him to Stamford Bridge in the summer, should he return as manager.
