Frank Lampard and Steven Gerrard are among the greatest players to have played the game in the Premier League era.
There has always been this massive debate over who was better between the two players. Lampard scored 274 club goals for Chelsea compared to Gerrard’s 190. And the Blues legend had the more trophies, as he won three Premier League titles, while Gerrard never managed any.
While playing for national team, Lampard and Gerrard could never fit into the same team.
Former Tottenham midfielder Jamie O’Hara has now weighed into the debate of who was the better player, and he believes that the Liverpool legend outclassed the Chelsea legend during their playing days.
“Let’s get one thing straight right now. Gerrard was on another level [to Lampard]. Another planet,” O’Hara said.
“Gerrard was unbelievable, you couldn’t get near the guy. It was a joke at how good he was, he had everything. He had pace, he could score, he could tackle, he was harder than you, fitter than you, had more leadership and could drag the team on his own.
“Lampard was a goalscorer. He’d get in the box and was almost like a No.10, but as an all-round player.
“But Gerrard was the best player I played against by a million miles.
“It’s not a debate.”
Do you agree that Steven Gerrard was a greater player than the legendary Frank Lampard?
