MATT BARLOW: Frank Lampard’s pursuit of the all-time Chelsea goal record may have lost some momentum but it certainly retains a sense of occasion.

Having scored his 200th for the Blues against his former club West Ham last month, he produced No 201 in the presence of Bobby Tambling.

Tambling’s record of 202 is in his sights, even if it had started to fade as the games dwindled and Lampard moved into the final weeks of his contract, no longer certain of his place in the team.

Against Swansea, another former club who he represented on loan as a teenager, Lampard was on the bench for the first 25 minutes until Ramires limped off with a thigh injury.

He came on to a standing ovation and, by half-time, had set up the first for Oscar and scored a penalty, a spot-kick willed into the net by 40,000 Chelsea supporters. In the stands, Tambling looked on with pride.

At half-time, the 71-year-old was on the pitch to salute the crowd and after the final whistle he was in the home dressing room congratulating Lampard.
