Frank Lampard: Chelsea midfielder celebrates his landmark goal at Southampton

Lampard, a 65th-minute substitute at St Mary's, rounded off the scoring for the FA Cup holders with a late penalty.

It saw him equal Kerry Dixon's goal tally of 193 for Chelsea to put him joint second behind Bobby Tambling, whose record haul of 25 FA Cup goals Lampard drew level with in the process.

"It is a great achievement for him and hopefully he can score a lot of goals until the end of the season," Benitez said. "We will be happy and he will be happy if that happens."

Lampard's current deal runs out at the end of the season and asked whether there had been conversations over an extension, Benitez said: "As I said before, Frank is a good professional.

"He is doing well and is under contract and he is fine. I know they have some conversations sometimes, but the main thing for me as a coach is to get the best out of him and that's it."

may well get slated by other United fans for this, but out of the three contenders, I'd far prefer Liverpool to win the title. Yes some elements of their fanbase can be a bit OTT, yes they're our biggest rivals and yes it will make our poor season feel even more like the end of an era (Fergie's gone, Liverpool are back on top). However I just have to applaud Brendan Rodgers and the way he's turned Liverpool around in just a couple of seasons. It...
