Lampard left deflated despite landmark

Frank Lampard took little pleasure in becoming the first midfielder to score 150 Premier League goals after Chelsea's bid to finish in the top four suffered a blow with a 1-1 draw at Fulham.

• Dempsey hurts Chelsea's ambitions
• Di Matteo: It was a penalty

Lampard put the Blues ahead at Craven Cottage with a controversial penalty on the stroke of half-time but Clint Dempsey's deflected header eight minutes from time ensured a draw, leaving Chelsea in sixth place, two points behind the final Champions League spot.

Asked how it felt to reach another milestone, Lampard said: "Not too good at the minute. It feels like a little bit of a loss.''

The 33-year-old, who has scored more than one landmark goal this season, added: "They'll be nice when I look back and I'm an old man. But I just can't enjoy them after we didn't get the three points.

"I'm pleased to try to help the team and score goals. Landmarks are great. But, at the present time and with the position we're in the league, every league game is a final for us and we want to be winning them.''

Spurs' 2-1 defeat against Norwich opened the door for Chelsea. Asked how much of an opportunity they had wasted, Lampard said: "A big one. Having seen the Tottenham result earlier, we knew we could close that gap and we wanted to win the game for that.

"Having said that, Fulham's a very tough game, the team's played very well this season, particularly lately.''

Monday night's result was a rare setback under caretaker manager Roberto Di Matteo ahead of Sunday's FA Cup semi-final against Tottenham and the upcoming Champions League semi against Barcelona.
