London, Aug 20(ANI): Chelsea midfielder frank Lampard has promised his Chelsea fans that he will keep scoring goals after he equalled Jimmy Greaves record in the club's all time goal charts.

Lampard's penalty in the 3-1 victory over Sunderland on Tuesday meant he has now scored 132 goals in his eight-year career at the club. Jimmy is a goalscoring legend and I'm sure he did it in a lot less games than I did," The Sun quoted Lampard, as saying.

"I'm very pleased to be up there with him and just want to keep on scoring for Chelsea, especially important goals that help us win games," he added.

Lampard achieved the total in 429 matches, since joining Chelsea from West Ham United in 2001, while Greaves took just 169 appearances, scoring at a staggering rate of 0.78 goals per game in just four years between 1957 and 1961.

The 31-year-old also insisted that personal records were secondary to winning trophies with The Blues.

"Personal records are nice, but not as important as silverware. I'm much more proud of winning Premier Leagues and FA Cups with Chelsea," Lampard said.

Lampard further said that his club would love to halt Manchester United's run of three straight Premier League titles.

"It's just a good start. You want to get your noses in front early on. If we don't repeat the mid-season we had last year, then we'll have a great chance," he added. (ANI)
