It became something of a running joke during the mid-to-late-2000s that most of Frank Lampard’s goals were the result of fortuitous deflections.

Back in October 2006, following a question from a reader, the Guardian even attempted to investigate what percentage of the midfielder’s goals were deflections.

Surprisingly, they found that only 10 per cent of his goals - six out of 62 - were the result of deflections, although this percentage surely increased during the next eight years of his Chelsea career.

Lampard not only had a knack of arriving late in the box to finish off chances, but also that rare ability to ensure his shots hit the back of the net regardless of which opponents they cannoned off on the way through.

It was a handy skill to possess. Lampard scored 211 goals in 648 appearances for the Blues and remains their all-time top scorer - not bad for a central midfielder.

Video: The most Frank Lampard goal ever?

Didier Drogba lined up alongside Lampard for Montreal Impact at the weekend and must have sported a wry smile after watching his former teammate score with arguably the most Frank Lampard goal ever towards the end of the match.

The 38-year-old scored his fifth goal in six matches with five minutes left on the clock, making amends for a poor first touch by charging down the last defender and watching as the ball looped over Evan Bush and into Montreal Impact’s goal.

Big win for New York City FC

Lampard’s late goal secured a 3-1 victory for New York City FC, who climbed to the top of the MLS Eastern Conference.

Chelsea v Liverpool - Premier League

Taking to Instagram after the match, the former England international unfortunately failed to make a funny reference to his deflected goal.

“Great win at Montreal for the lads #nycfc ⚽️👍“ he posted.
