Jamie Carragher places Gerrard and Lampard ahead of Scholes in list of great English midfielders

Jamie Carragher has given his opinion on the three best English midfielders of the last 20 years and has put Paul Scholes behind both Steven Gerrard and Frank Lampard.

It isn’t the first time that Carragher has weighed in on this debate and also not the first time he’s placed Scholes behind Gerrard and Lampard.

Last season he debated the matter with fellow Sky Sports pundit Gary Neville and was met with astonishment at the views he expressed.

In light of Lampard’s move to New York City FC, Carragher has dug up the debate, saying he thinks Gerrard finishes top of the pile of English midfielders from the last 20 years while Lampard edges Scholes due to the number of decisive goals he scored in his career.
