Lampard edges closer to record in victory over Swansea

Midfielder Frank Lampard scored his 201st Chelsea goal as the Blues moved closer to a return to the Champions League with a 2-0 victory over Swansea at Stamford Bridge.

Lampard, who began the game as a substitute, set up Oscar's opener before converting a 45th-minute penalty to move him within one goal of the club record held by the watching Bobby Tambling.

Last season's European champions were unable to add to their total in the second half as Rafael Benitez's side moved three points clear of rivals Tottenham in the battle for a place in the Barclays Premier League top four and extended Swansea's winless run to six games.
