Frank Lampard hopes that he will get an extended run in the Chelsea side following his late winner against Wolves on Monday, Sky
The England international has seen his first team opportunities limited since the arrival of boss Andre Villas-Boas this summer. Lampard offered a timely reminder of what he can do to the Chelsea manager with a well-taken finish a minute from time. Villas-Boas is looking to bring new, younger talent through the Chelsea ranks, but Lampard is keen to show he still has the ability to perform.
Lampard said: ‘I have always said that I’m at my best when I play regularly. I have been fortunate enough to do that for a long, long time here and when I play 90 minutes, you feel like you are getting your levels up to where they want to be and that’s when you can make runs into the box late in the game and try to get winning goals.’
‘For me, personally, I am very happy and I am hoping now to keep contributing to the group to help us move up the table’, Lampard added. The 33 year old was fortunate to escape a red card for his tackle on Wolves midfielder Adam Hamill and is available for Sunday’s FA Cup tie with Portsmouth at Stamford Bridge.
