Lampard important for us - Pellegrini

Manchester City manager Manuel Pellegrini says Frank Lampard is an "important player" after City's 7-0 win over Sheffield Wednesday in the Capital One Cup.

Lampard scored two in City's ruthless second-half display at Etihad Stadium, his third goal in four days, helping the holders start their Cup defence.

City will play Alan Pardew's Newcastle in the fourth round.
