Frank Lampard future clouds super eight Chelsea

Frank Lampard

Frank Lampard admits his Chelsea future remains uncertain despite the midfielder establishing himself as the club's leading top-flight scorer in the 8-0 rout of Aston Villa.

Lampard marked his 500th Premier League start with his side's fourth, his 130th Chelsea goal in the Premier League, taking him past the previous mark set by Bobby Tambling.

However, the midfielder, 34, is out of contract at the end of this season and has so far not received the offer of a new deal from the club.

"I'm not concentrating that far as I'm under contract and I love playing here so I'm going to continue game by game and just be pleased to be fit. I really enjoyed this match and just want to keep enjoying my football. I believe I have a lot in me to go," he said.

"The club's position is its position, I don't want to get too deep into that. I'm here to play football and show people what I can do and I'll continue to do that. And he added: "The record means a lot. The starts are great, I've been very fortunate to play for a great club and the managers and team-mates I've had, I'm very proud of that.

"The goals record, I'm very proud to beat such a great man as Bobby Tambling, who is an absolute legend and a lovely bloke."

The Chelsea goals were shared between seven players with Fernando Torres, David Luiz, Branislav Ivanovic, Oscar, Ramires (2) and Eden Hazard also on target while Lucas Piazon missed a penalty.

"The team is attacking and not depending upon one or two players," said manager Rafael Benitez.

"That is good news and hopefully we can do the same on Wednesday (at Norwich). We had other chances.

The other team was suffering."
