​West Ham captain Mark Noble: Who is England's modern day best?

West Ham United captain Mark Noble has weighed in on the debate surrounding England's best midfielder during their golden generation.

Supporters have debated for years about who was better between Chelsea's Frank Lampard, Manchester United's Paul Scholes and former Liverpool captain Steven Gerrard.

And Noble says he would have to pick the latter.

"Trust me when I say you only realise how good a player is when you play against them," Noble said in a Q and A from West Ham's Twitter accountwhen asked to pick between the trio.

"All three were top, top players in their own right but all-round player, Stevie G was the complete footballer."
