Frank Lampard says he is happy with his recent form as he closes in on Chelsea's all-time goalscoring record.

The Chelsea midfielder has scored in each of his last four games in all competitions to move him within five strikes of breaking Bobby Tambling's all-time record haul of 202 goals for the Blues.

Despite his status as one of Chelsea's greatest ever players, Lampard could well leave the club he joined in 2001 from West Ham when his contract expires in the summer.

The goal-scoring midfielder, who bagged the winner in England's 2-1 victory over Brazil last week, says his recent good form is all down to playing regularly.

It's not rocket science: the more you play you get sharper and you get match fit," Lampard told Chelsea TV.

"Since I've been able to play regularly I feel like I've got sharpness and the confidence.

"I'm 34, you still need confidence of playing regular games. It certainly helps me, to get flow in your game; you ask any player that, I'm not on my own there.

"When you're playing regularly and you do start playing well, scoring goals, whatever position you're in, it's enjoyable to keep playing and it helps.

"You have to have an eye on the squad - it is a long season - so I'm not expecting, or asking, to play every single game. (But) it seems to me recently I've been able to play every three or four days, I've enjoyed it."

While Chelsea are yet to offer the 34-year-old a new deal, reports last week suggested Blues owner Roman Abramovich was willing to relent and extend his current deal because of his recent good form.
