Lampard and Gerrard were two of England’s best midfielders in their golden generation. Both players had similar playing styles and played for rival clubs, with Chelsea backing Lampard and Liverpool backing Gerrard. Both clubs were lead to titles by these players and became club icons for the generation to come.
Frank Lampard played 606 games in the Premier League, scoring 177 goals. Lampard also managed to score 10 goals or more in 10 consecutive seasons for Chelsea. The most number of goals in a season by Lampard was 22. He’s the Premier League’s all-time leading midfield goal-scorer and 4th in the all-time goal scoring list.
In terms of Silverware, Lampard won 3 Premier League titles with Chelsea, 4 FA Cups, 2 League Cups, 1 Champions League, 1 Super Cup and 1 Europa League.
Steven Gerrard played 504 games in the Premier League, scoring 120 goals. Gerrard has scored more than 10 goals in only 4 seasons in the Premier League, the highest being 16 goals in a season. Steven Gerrard is 17th in the Premier league’s all-time goal scoring list, but second only to Lampard in terms of midfielders on that list.
In terms of Silverware, Gerrard won 0 Premier League titles at Liverpool, 2 FA Cups, 3 League Cups, 1 Champions League, 1 Super Cup and 1 Europa League.
Lampard would cost more than Gerrard if they were still playing today in terms of market transfer value. The cost would be only marginally higher because Lampard scored more goals from midfield. In terms of trophies, Lampard outshines Gerrard again. Gerrard did do slightly better than Lampard when the England shirt came on. Stevie G was even captain of the Three Lions.
