Chelsea legend Frank Lampard has named former Liverpool captain Steven Gerrard as his toughest opponent.

Asked to name his toughest opponent, Lampard told COPA90: “Steven Gerrard… it’s a tough one, I played against so many great players.

“I remember Roy Keane and Patrick Viera, they were untouchable and they would sort of bully me on the pitch, in a good way. I felt in awe of them on the pitch.

“Roy Keane would just say “get off” and keep you over there while he played his own game.

“When that era finished, Gerrard, Scholesy, Yaya Toure came through… But I’ll say Gerrard [is my toughest opponent] for the consistency over the years, when he was on it he had everything.”
