Chelsea midfielder Frank Lampard believes he's back to his best for club and country.

The England international repaid Fabio Capello's faith with the opener from the penalty spot against Wales on Saturday, vindicating his selection despite calls from the media for the player to be benched.

Lampard himself admitted fears over his starting spot, but having recovered from groin and calf injuries is now hitting the form that made him one of the world's best midfielders.

"I think I'm coming back to my best form now," said the 32-year-old.

"It's been a bit stop-start in January and February but in the last few games I've started to feel as fit as I had beforehand."


The former West Ham midfielder will hope to carry that through to the remaining Barclays Premier League and Champions League fixtures this season, with the Blues still battling on both fronts for silverware.

Whilst the league might just be a bridge too far for the Stamford Bridge outfit, a European quarter-final against Manchester United could yet prove to be a pivotal point as Carlo Ancelotti's side chase the 'holy grail'.

With Lampard fit and firing from midfielder, the Blues will have every chance against their English rivals at the start of April.

"I don't go into games worrying about the groin or anything else now. I just worry about trying to play."
