Lampard breaks Chelsea goal record, says hopes to be at the club next season

Frank Lampard became Chelsea's outright record goalscorer by scoring twice as the Blues came from behind to secure a 2-1 win away to Aston Villa in the Premier League on Saturday.

England international Lampard struck in the 61st minute at Villa Park when he collected a pass from Eden Hazard, and let fly from some 15 yards to equal former Chelsea striker Bobby Tambling's club record of 202 goals

His goal drew the visitors level at 1-1 after both sides had had a man sent-off in Ramires (Chelsea) and Christian Benteke, who opened the scoring for Villa.
