Football: Lampard reinforces value to Chelsea in Wigan win
LONDON (AP) - Frank Lampard provided another reminder of his enduring value to Chelsea with an influential display and his 12th club goal of the season in a 4-1 victory over Wigan in the English Premier League on Saturday.
Chelsea has stayed silent on the failure to offer a contract beyond this season to the 34-year-old Lampard, who is just four goals behind Bobby Tambling's club record of 202.
By scoring the third for Chelsea, Lampard helped his team go four points behind second-place Manchester City, which lost 3-1 at Southampton.
Lampard also netted England's match-winner against Brazil in a friendly on Wednesday.
