Jamie Carragher: Frank Lampard more influential than Paul Scholes
Jamie Carragher says Frank Lampard comes ahead of Paul Scholes in the list of top English Premier League midfielders
Jamie Carragher believes Frank Lampard comes ahead of Paul Scholes in the list of top English midfielders of the Premier League era.
The former Liverpool defender rates his ex-team-mate Steven Gerrard as the top English midfield star but believes Chelsea’s Lampard has influenced more big games than the former Manchester United man.
“Frank has a catalogue of golden moments and, for that reason, I have him behind Steven but ahead of Paul Scholes in my list of the Premier League’s top three English midfielders,” Carragher wrote in his column in the Daily Mail.
“I know Barcelona’s Xavi described Scholes as the best midfielder of the last 20 years but Frank has influenced more big games — his goals clinched Chelsea’s first title in 2005, he has won them an FA Cup final and scored in a Champions League final.
“He has also played more and scored more for England, and his tally of 166 Premier League goals — the highest by a midfielder — outstrips the 107 Scholes scored.”◀ The Sport Review homepageNext story ►
