Veteran midfield player finds the target once again for the West Londoners.
England international Frank Lampard registered the 200th goal of his Chelsea career against London rivals West Ham United at Stamford Bridge in the Premier League on Sunday afternoon.
Lampard had been stuck on 199 goals for the last month but after four scoreless games he finally reached the landmark when he netted in the 19th minute of the London derby at Stamford Bridge.
The 34-year-old, fittingly named as Chelsea’s captain on Sunday, was picked out by an Eden Hazard cross and took advantage of woeful West Ham marking to power a header past Jussi Jaaskelainen.
Lampard, who joined Chelsea from West Ham for £11 millon in June 2001, is now just two goals behind Bobby Tambling’s all-time record for the west Londoners.
