Frank Lampard proved the master of being in the right place at the right time once again as Chelsea survived a second-half scare to beat Sunderland 1-0 in the Barclays Premier League.

Lampard scored for the third successive match since his latest recall, although he knew little about a goal which owed everything to a superb Fernando Torres volley that smashed against the crossbar and back off his team-mate.

Torres also saw two strong penalty claims turned down in one of his best displays in a Chelsea shirt, Nicklas Bendtner had one rejected at the other end and James McClean missed an open goal that might have snatched a point for the visitors.
