Former Arsenal midfielder Jack Wilshere believes that Liverpool hero Steven Gerrard was a better player than Chelsea legend Frank Lampard.

Gerrard spent the majority of his remarkable playing career at Liverpool and lifted a Champions League, UEFA Cup, two FA Cups and three League Cups.


The 41-year-old former Reds midfielder, who is currently the manager of Aston Villa, spent his final season at LA Galaxy before he retired in 2016.

Lampard, much like Gerrard, enjoyed incredible success in his illustrious playing career at Chelsea.

The 43-year-old former Blues midfielder spent 13 years at Chelsea as a player and won three Premier League titles, a Champions League, a Europa League, four FA Cups and two League Cups.

Lampard would later manage Chelsea and was sacked after a disappointing 18 months in charge, with current Blues manager Thomas Tuchel succeeding him.

Both Lampard and Gerrard are considered two of the best Premier League midfielders of all time alongside the likes of Manchester United legend Paul Scholes.

Wilshere played alongside both Lampard and Gerrard on the international stage with England, with the former Gunners star calling them “two of the best English players I’ve played with.”

However, the 29-year-old midfielder admitted that Gerrard “nicks it” ahead of Lampard in the heated debate surrounding the two Premier League legends.

“I’ve been asked this one a lot,” Wilshere told talkSPORT.

“I’ve played with both and they were both amazing, probably two of the best English players I’ve played with.

“But I’m going to have to go Gerrard. He nicks it in the early days where he first burst onto the scene and he was that dynamic goalscoring midfielder, but Lampard’s numbers were incredible.”

Wilshere is currently a free agent after he was released by Bournemouth at the end of last season.

The former England international, who turns 30 in January, is preparing for the next chapter in his club career.

“It’s a big month for me,” Wilshere said.

“I always said when I went back to Arsenal to train to get fit, it was for January. Now we’re at January, I’m 30 at the start of it and I’ll see where it takes me. I’m obviously looking for a team and see what comes up.

“If we go past January… how long can you be without a club and not playing week in, week out? Big month.”
