This was further backed up by the vast number of extremely important goals he scored for the club in both Europe and in the Premier League. He also had a long career in England which resulted in 114 caps and meant he became the fourth most capped player in history.
Lampard, on the other hand, came up through the ranks of West Ham before he moved over to Chelsea. He also made 148 appearances for West Ham’s first team and scored 24 goals. He moved to Chelsea in 2001 and began his extremely successful 13 years at the club. The three-time Chelsea player of the year winner made a record 429 appearances in which he scored an incredible 211 goals in all competitions.
