Chelsea ace Lampard: Cech save up there with Banksy

Chelsea ace Frank Lampard feels Petr Cech's wonder save in the FA Cup final will go down in history.

Lampard reckons it is the best save he has seen since England star Gordon Banks denied Pele in the 1970 World Cup.

Lampard said: "It's right up there with the very best saves.

"I was calling him Banksy in the dressing room because from where I was standing, as soon as it was set up for Andy Carroll like that it was a goal.

"Keepers don't often get the credit that goalscorers do but Petr won the FA Cup for us with that save alone."

Chelsea's interim boss Roberto Di Matteo added: "His save will be remembered for years. It was quite incredible when you saw Carroll coming in for that cross from so close to goal."
