Frank Lampard admitted he was lucky to still be on the pitch when he scored Chelsea's late winner in their 2-1 success at Wolves.

Midfielder Lampard accepts he was fortunate not to be sent off for a sliding challenge on Wolves winger Adam Hammill midway through the first half. The 33-year-old escaped with a yellow card from referee Peter Walton - one of five bookings in an eight minute spell - and then netted Chelsea's winner with just two minutes remaining.

Lampard said: "My heart was in my mouth over that challenge. I have to admit that. There was no malice, and I honestly mean that, but I was late and I might have been a bit lucky to stay on the pitch."
