This afternoon the England international struck a hat-trick against Bolton Wanderers and, speaking after the match, claimed that his experience helped him through a period where many reports had questioned his long-term future at Stamford Bridge.
"I've been around a long time now and I know everything is not going to be plain sailing," Lampard told Sky Sports News.

Lampard's three goals at the Reebok Stadium was the sixth hat-trick of his career.
