What could the Premier League’s packed middle mean for betting? Posted by Andy Morris

Frank Lampard is the highest scoring midfielder in the history of the Premier League, and one of most decorated players of his generation.

The defence is where Lampard appeared to have the most thinking to do.

Asked which player in the league was most like him, Lampard told Sky Sports: "Last year I would have said Dele Alli but I'm not sure".

Frank Lampard did his best at hiding his happiness as a guest in the MNF studio, and after touching on how Eden Hazard had returned to the form that saw him named "player of the season" the year before last, the Chelsea legend then named his team of the season so far with a number of interesting players included.

"I've been really impressed with their play and I think when you're a player who's been let go by a top team and you have to go back down the ladder and now you're looking at him..." You knew if Steven was on his game in the first three minutes because he will crash through someone.

But it's hard to argue with the Blues hero, 38, with Antonio Conte's side 10 points clear at the top of the Premier League after beating West Ham.

Lampard, who is third on the all-time Premier League appearances list with 609, made the Team of the Year three times.

Former Liverpool midfielder Jamie Redknapp has said the Premier League title race is not a foregone conclusion and insisted that leaders Chelsea can still be overtaken.

However, since his retirement - and even in the final years of his playing days - he has been eulogised to a level at which he compares with the all-time greats of the game; a passer as good as Didi, a goalscorer as good as Maradona, a revolutionary as important as Cruyff.
