Frank Lampard Voted Ahead Of Eden Hazard As Chelsea's Best Ever Players By Fans
Eden Hazard was being heralded by some as the best Chelsea player of all time ahead of his departure to Real Madrid but in a vote by fans Frank Lampard has actually topped the charts.
On Friday night Real Madrid confirmed that they'd signed Eden Hazard, ending months of speculation and stopping the monotony of long summer transfer saga- thanks everyone.
The transfer came just 10 days after the Chelsea forward had used his side's Europa League final success to suggest that he was on the way out of Stamford Bridge.
That admission made many Blues' fans start the 12 steps to recovery with acceptance and some started to suggest that the Belgian was the greatest player to have played for their team.
However it seems that a majority of Chelsea fans don't agree. According to the vote on Ranker, Frank Lampard leads the way, with Hazard actually in fourth.
1. Frank Lampard
2. Didier Drogba
3. John Terry
4. Eden Hazard
5. Petr Cech
6. Gianfranco Zola
7. Claude Makelele
8. N'Golo Kante
9. Ashley Cole
10. Michael Essien
It's no surprise to see Lampard, Drogba and Terry in the top three places with the trio arguably the most influential players of the successful era since Roman Abramovich bought the club.
Lampard, now Derby County manager, is the club's all time top scorer and has been linked with a return to the club as manager this summer.
Drogba scored the winning penalty in the Champions League final in 2012, having scored the goal to take the game into extra time.
Terry captained the team to five Premier League successes, the most of any captain in the era.
Is Hazard the fourth best Chelsea player of all time or should he be higher up?
