LAMPARD SHOWS HIS CLASS
Frank Lampard stormed back up the Actim Index, the official player ratings system of the Barclays Premier League, after helping himself to a century of points over the last week.
The England star netted 75 points after his four-goal haul against Derby last midweek – the second highest individual match score of the season.
And he followed it up with another 25 points in the 1-0 win at Sunderland on Saturday to climb 37 places into 15th overall as the Blues’ title challenge rumbles on.
It was a good week for Avram Grant’s men, six of his squad were named in the Team of the Week helped by the fact they were one of four teams with two Barclays Premier League matches played.
Analysis of all Premiership games is taking place throughout the season and the players in the Actim Index Team of the Week are:
David James (35)
Paulo Ferreira (40)
Hermann Hreidarsson (48)

Ashley Cole (37)
Cristiano Ronaldo (32)
Frank Lampard (100)
Stephen Ireland (33)
Joe Cole (43)
Jermain Defoe (75)

The Actim Index is calculated using a unique mathematical formula that rates each player’s contribution be it goals, shots, passes, dribbles, tackles, crosses, saves, clearances, blocks, interceptions, assists, clean sheets, time on the pitch or number of points gained by the team with marks deducted for red and yellow cards.
