Liverpool legend Jamie Carragher rates Chelsea midfielder Frank Lampard ahead of Manchester United hero Paul Scholes. Carragher wrote 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."
