Chelsea boss Luiz Felipe Scolari was full of praise for Frank Lampard after their 3-0 victory over Hull City.

Lampard put the Blues on the way to a convincing Barclays Premier League victory at the KC Stadium with a stunning left-footed chip in the third minute.

Nicolas Anelka pounced on a defensive mistake and Florent Malouda struck from close range to make certain of victory in the second half but it was the performance of Lampard that caught Scolari's eye.

The Brazilian said: "I think his goal was one of the best in the Premier League.

"It was a fantastic goal - only Frank Lampard can make this goal. It was one of the best goals I have seen in my life.

"He is a very intelligent player and he is a man that is never tired.

"There are many very good players in England, and one of the best is Frank."

The win lifted Chelsea after Sunday's defeat by Liverpool had seen them surrender their unbeaten record and top spot in the table.

Scolari added: "After we lost against Liverpool our reaction was very good.

"We had many chances to win this game and take the three points.

"We will try now to make pressure for the other clubs."
