Which Premier League player has the most career goals? (1)

Published 22 Comments

Frank Lampard reinforced his position as the finest goalscoring central midfielder to ever grace the Premier League when he scored twice for Chelsea on Saturday to establish himself as the most potent player in the club's history.

The 34-year-old netted his 202nd and 203rd goals for Chelsea in a 2-1 victory at Villa Park to ensure he surpassed the record previously held by Bobby Tambling and further etch his name into Stamford Bridge folklore.

A double-century of goals is a spectacular achievement for a player in Lampard's position, and the consistency of his scoring during 12 years with Chelsea has been nothing short of remarkable.

Lampard has scored at least 15 goals in all competitions in nine of the last 10 seasons, and is still in with a chance of reaching 20 goals this term for Chelsea for the fourth time in the last eight years.

The England international has found himself on the peripheries at times this term, but has still scored 17 times - 15 of which have come in 28 Premier League outings - and shows no signs of letting up in the latter stages of his illustrious career.

Lampard's club career total for both West Ham and Chelsea is an impressive 243 goals in 802 appearances, and places him among the very elite of goalscorers currently plying their trade in the Premier League.
