Top 10 Midfielders of 2012: 6 - Frank Lampard
Frank Lampard still manages to defy the odds year after year. At the start of Andre Villas Boas' tenure, it looked as if Lampard was either on his way out of Chelsea or spending the rest of the season on the bench.
However, Lampard went on to captain Chelsea in the UEFA Champions League final in place of the suspended John Terry, and came out victorious for the first time in the clubs history.
Lampard holds many records in The Barclays Premier League and on the 25th February he scored his tenth league goal of the season against Bolton. Becoming the only player to score at least 10 goals in nine consecutive season in The Premier League, and his 149th all time league goal, he would soon go on to score his 150th. Becoming the only midfielder to reach that land mark.
Lampard set up Didier Drogba in the 11/12 FA Cup Final against Liverpool to win the fouth FA Cup of his career.
Lampard may be coming to the end of his career, but if he carries on playing like he is, he will remain the heart and soul of Chelsea FC for years to come.
