Chelsea ace Lampard: Drogba deserves to be crowned top dog

Lampard told The Sun: “From working so closely with Didier I really feel he deserves to get it because he’s been the best striker in the world this season.

“And that’s the best accolade to have. But they are both well deserving of winning the award.

“Ronaldo’s ability on the ball is amazing, the way he’s been playing recently shows he is one of the best players in the Premiership and probably the world at the moment.

“It’s great to see a player with skill that excites you so much.

“But the reason I’d give it to Didier is because his goals record has been so prolific.

“He’s scored crucial goals, he’s scored easy goals, the little tap-ins and the great goals that have won us games.”
