Former Chelsea midfielder Frank Lampard has been inducted in the Premier League hall of fame, after his extraordinary career as a Chelsea player.

With 177 Premier League goals, 147 of which came in a blue shirt and 102 Premier League assists, no midfielder in the Premier League era can boast of such a feat.

Lampard won the Premier League Player of the Season award in 2005, and was a key figure for the Blues in the 2005, 2006 and 2010 title triumphs.

From 2001 to 2005, Lampard played in 164 league games, which is the record for the most consecutive appearances in the Premier League for an outfield player.

John Terry and Didier Drogba are the two other Chelsea legends who were nominated for the PL Hall of Fame.

The PL Hall of Fame honour recognises players who have demonstrated an exceptional record of on-pitch success and have made important contributions in the division since its creation in 1992.

In order to be eligible for induction, players must have been retired by August 1, 2020.
