Andre Villas-Boas declared Frank Lampard had every chance of breaking Chelsea's all-time goalscoring record after the midfielder scored one of the luckiest winners of his career to see off Sunderland 1-0.

Lampard was in the right place at the right time for the ball to bounce off him into the net after Fernando Torres' superb scissors kick careered off the crossbar.

He is now just 12 and 21 goals, respectively, shy of fellow Blues legends Kerry Dixon and Bobby Tambling in the all-time list, and manager Villas-Boas said: "He will continue to threaten all remaining Chelsea records."
