Lampard enters Guinness World Book of Records

Frank Lampard has been named in the Guinness World Book of Records for one of his eight City goals.

Having found the net for Manuel Pellegrini's side against former employers Chelsea, the NYCFC midfielder broke the record for scoring against the most Premier League clubs.

As the Londoners were the 39th team Lampard had notched against, he overtook Andy Cole's record to write his name into the history books.

Reflecting on the achievement, the England legend declared: "I'm very proud. I've always been a fan of the Guinness World Book of Records.

"I set goals throughout my career to break records and this is one I never imagined to get. I am a big fan of the books so to feature in it is amazing."

Looking back to the goal that earned him his inclusion, he admitted: "It was strange. It's quite hard to put it into words.

"I will always have a great relationship with Chelsea and I never imagined scoring against them.

"I was really pleased. At the end of the game, I was really fortunate because I had all the Chelsea fans singing my name and showing their appreciation, even though I'd just scored against them, and the City fans were doing the same. I was very lucky.

"It turned out alright because we drew on the day and that goal went on to help me break the record!"

Although delighted with the feat, when asked whether he could name all 39 of the Premier League clubs he'd scored against, Lampard only managed 21! Can you name them all?
