Chelsea great Frank Lampard has revealed his England teammate and ex-Liverpool captain Steven Gerrard as the toughest Premier League player he faced.
“Steven Gerrard, domestically. He had everything,” Lampard told Daily Mail.
“He’d deal with you defensively and hurt you going forward.
Lampard also picked Barcelona duo Andreas Iniesta and Xavi as two players he found most difficult to play against in the Champions League.
“In Europe, it was Andreas Iniesta and Xavi. As a combination, you couldn’t get the ball off them.”
