Chelsea midfielder Frank Lampard reached yet another milestone after scoring 250 goals at club level following his goal against Stoke City during this weekend.

Lampard stepped up to take the penalty that would give him this milestone, but it was saved by goalkeeper Asmir Begovic. The rebound, though, fell kindly for the former West Ham man, who is regarded as one of the best to have represented the Chelsea. He is already the club’s all-time top scorer having recently crossed the 200 mark.

At 35 years of age, he may not have much time left to break much top-flight records, but the midfielder does not believe that his time is at an end. Speaking after the match, Lampard said that he intends to carry on playing for another two or three years because he is in great shape at the moment. His contract runs out at the end of the season, but there have been rumours that Chelsea will offer him a new deal in order to prevent MLS clubs like LA Galaxy from snatching him.

Lampard has been an important player for Chelsea even at this stage of his career, as manager Jose Mourinho has been able to rely on his experience more often than not.

"I am enjoying playing my football, I am loving it and seeing the development of the new squad and you become and older hand and help them, I am enjoying the role. I have always said I want to play for another two or three years, at the minute and as long as I am fit and feeling fresh I will do that. We have done the perfect job and now we get ready for Tuesday. We knew we had to win all our games and Palace and Paris was disappointing," said Lampard.
