Chelsea 2 Swansea City 0: match report
Read a full match report of the Premier League game between Chelsea and Swansea City at on Sunday April 28, 2013.
Not quite a “former Blues midfielder” he was billed by Chelsea’s own TV channel this week, Frank Lampard demonstrated his enduring importance to Chelsea after coming off the bench to inspire them to victory and move to within one goal of their all-time scoring record.
Having not scored for six weeks, the midfielder demonstrated the kind of timing that has marked his Stamford Bridge career by netting goal number 201 in front of the current chart-topper, Bobby Tambling.
The seriously ill Tambling flew to London from Ireland on Friday, two days after being released from months in hospital and he was able to celebrate Chelsea moving back up to third in the Premier League.
