It's a phrase which is far too often used without much thought, but the general consensus is quickly becoming a well-known fact: Frank Lampard is arguably the best midfielder of his generation.
Some may point to the likes of Steven Gerrard as being ahead of Lampard. And sure, in terms of popularity that may be the case, but nobody can deny that 34-year-old Lampard is one of the best at his position.
Scoring a record-high 197 goals for Chelsea is something any striker should be proud of. So to have a midfielder reach that amount of goals is a phenomenal achievement. And these weren't just your normal tap-ins. Admittedly, a fraction of those goals have been converted from the penalty spot, but that should not be counted against Frank.
If anything, it shows his composure and consistency is still of the highest standard, and why we should cherish watching Lampard score goals over the past decade.
