Lampard has been awarded the game-winning goal from last weekend's 1-0 win against Everton by Premier League officials, the Daily Mail reports.

Lampard was initially given an assist on the free kick, with John Terry getting credit for the goal. However, the dubious goals committee has decided that Terry did not touch the ball, therefore giving Lampard the credit.

Lampard's free kick three minutes into extra time in the second half was flicked in by John Terry to give Chelsea a 1-0 win over Everton on Saturday.

Lampard has been in-and-out of the Chelsea starting XI in 2014, but took advantage of the full playing time Saturday. With Oscar picking up a knock, plus David Luiz also injured, Lampard will have to step up to solidify the Blues' midfield, with a midweek Champions League tie at Galatasaray, followed by a trip to Craven Cottage to face Fulham next weekend.

Lampard (hip) is available off the bench for Sunday's Premier League match against Manchester United.

Lampard is returning from a hip injury that was supposed to keep him out until the end of January. It's unclear how his playing time will work out moving forward thanks to the additional of Nemanja Matic this week, although both players are on the bench to start Sunday's match, with Willian, Oscar, Eden Ramires and Hazard starting in midfield.

Lampard (hip) could start Sunday's Premier League match against Manchester United, according to the Daily Mirror.

Lampard's hip injury was supposed to sideline him for all of January, so it's a bit surprising that Sunday will be the date he returns. If he's fit, he'll likely start, although he could share time with newly-acquired Nemanja Matic, who is in the squad for Sunday's match.

Lampard could miss the rest of January due to a hamstring injury he suffered last Sunday against Liverpool, the Daily Mail reports.

Manager Jose Mourinho said after the injury that he expected Lampard to miss "some matches," and now we have a slightly more definitive timetable. It's a tough blow for Chelsea, although they were able to handle it during Wednesday's 3-0 win over Southampton.

Lampard was subbed off after halftime of Sunday's match against Liverpool due to a muscular injury and manager Jose Mourinho said he is expecting Lampard to miss some matches.

The quick turnaround in games will likely be the reason for Lampard's multiple-match absence, as Chelsea play again New Year's Day. The 35-year old could theoretically be ready for Chelsea's Premier League match after that, which comes January 11 against Hull City.

Lampard scored a goal and assisted on another in Chelsea's 4-3 win over Sunderland on Wednesday.

Lampard is starting to heat up, scoring three goals in his last three Premier League matches. He came on as a sub in last Sunday's match against Southampton but showed Wednesday why he should be a fixture in the starting XI.

Lampard scored from the spot in the 21st minute and then scored in open play after 81 minutes during Chelsea's 3-0 win over West Ham on Saturday.

Lampard's goals were his first since the Premier League season-opener for Chelsea back on August 18 against Hull. It was also his first clean sheet since September 21 against Fulham, although he has been a part of two shutouts in Champions League play.
