Video: Lampard provides great assist with Beckham-like cross in US

Frank Lampard's MLS career is continuing to gather pace, with the former Chelsea man setting up a fine goal in a 3-2 win for New York City.

New York City fans are finally starting to get a glimpse of Frank Lampard at his very best, with the former Chelsea man in his element against San Jose Earthquakes.

The 37-year-old got off the mark for his new Major League Soccer employers last week with a goal in their 2-0 victory over high-flying Toronto.

And the former Blues favourite was on form again this week with a fine cross that laid on a goal for striker Ned Grabavoy - which had more than a little of the David Beckham about it.

Beckham made a career out of delivering pin-point crosses and would no doubt appreciate Lampard's entry into the canon, which came as part of a 3-2 win for NYC.

The Chelsea favourite wasn't the only superstar to make an impact for the hosts either, with fellow New York City alumni Andrea Pirlo and David Villa also heavily involved in the action.

Villa, in particular, enjoyed a great game with a goal and an assist in the 3-2 win which saw NYC race into a 3-0 lead before late second half goals from the Earthquakes put the pressure on.

New York held on for the win though and are now just two points of a playoff place, having bounced back from a run of three straight defeats.
