Frank Lampard Vs Steven Gerrard: One Premier League Legend 'On Another Level' Compared To The Other

Liverpool icon Steven Gerrard has been hailed as the player who was “on another level” compared to Chelsea legend Frank Lampard.

That is according to Jamie O’Hara, who claimed Gerrard was the best player he played against by a “million miles.”

Gerrard failed to lift the Premier League title with the Reds, but he captured a Champions League, UEFA Cup, two FA Cups and three League Cups with the club.

The former Liverpool captain, who made 710 appearances for the Reds, called it time on a legendary career in 2016 after a brief stint with LA Galaxy.

Gerrard is frequently coupled with former England teammates Lampard and Paul Scholes in the debate for the best Premier League midfielder of all time.

O’Hara, who played against both Gerrard and Lampard, believes that the Liverpool legend was an “unbelievable” player and “had everything” in his football arsenal.

The former Tottenham man told talkSPORT: “You couldn't get near the guy. He was a joke!

“Let's get one thing straight right now. Gerrard was on another level as a player.

“Gerrard was unbelievable. You couldn’t get near the guy. He was a joke, how good he was.

“He had everything. Pace, could score, tackle, harder than you, fitter than you, more leadership, dragged the team on his own.

“Lampard was brilliant but he was a goalscorer, he was a goalscorer. He'd get in the box. He was almost like a number 10.

“But as an all-round player, Gerrard was the best player by a million miles I ever played against.

“It's not a debate. Not a debate.”

Gerrard became Rangers manager in 2018 and lifted the Scottish Premiership title with the Gers last season.

The former England international was announced as the new Villa head coach last week after the sacking of Dean Smith.

Lampard enjoyed a remarkable 13 years at Chelsea as a player and captured three Premier League titles, a Champions League, a Europa League, four FA Cups and two League Cups with the club.

The 43-year-old former Chelsea star’s return to Stamford Bridge as a manager ended after 18 months in charge, with Thomas Tuchel succeeding him at the club.

Lampard, who has been linked with Newcastle, Norwich City and Villa in recent weeks, has been out of management since his dismissal back in January.
