Lampard is the only midfielder in the English Premier League with the most goals. He began his career at West Ham United.

His breakthrough at the club came one year later, and he was selected for the Premier League Player of the Month in September 2003.


In the 2004/05 Premier League season, Frank was involved in all of Chelsea’s Premier League games and scored 13 goals to help the club lift the title.


Finishing the season on high, Lampard quickly established himself as one of the most creative box-to-box midfielders of world football at the time.
