One could be forgiven for expecting Lampard to name Didier Drogba his teammate at Chelsea as the one that stood out for their exploits together at Chelsea.

However there is one other who is a greater goalscorer in the mind of Lampard and that is current Manchester City frontman Sergio Aguero.

Lampard spent a solitary season at City but that was enough to make a good impression on the recently retired midfielder.

"I was fortunate enough to play with great players," he said on ​Monday Night Football. "Didier Drogba I always rave about. He was an all-round striker and gave you everything.

"But in terms of an out-and-out goalscorer, Aguero is the best I played with. He can be quiet for much of the game and then he'll score the winning goal. He's lethal around the box and sharp."

Asked to name the most technically gifted teammate, he opted for Eden Hazard. "I think with Eden Hazard he has the edge.

"He can do anything at top speed and we've seen that tonight (against West Ham. He's at the top of the tree, in terms of ability on the ball and awareness and skill.

"Di Canio was probably the first one I played with who had that ability. Gianfranco Zola, one of the best I played with. Great awareness, great skill.

"He's a world-class player and I want to see him kick on and do it regularly as he's doing this year in years to come. I think he'll be seen as one of the best players in the world."
