Chelsea's 8-0 thrashing of Aston Villa marked Frank Lampard's 500th Premier League start for the Blues.

He finally hit the milestone after 11 weeks since his 499th start.

Speaking after the game, Lampard joked: "It means I'm old. No, it means a lot. I've been fortunate to play for a great club and the managers had team-mates around me.

"I'm very proud of that goals record, to beat a great man such as Bobby who is an absolute legend and a lovely bloke, it means everything.

"Coming across London is not always easy but they (the fans) have supported me from the first minute. I appreciate it. I try to play well for them."
