Jamie O'Hara, a former star for Tottenham Hotspur, claims that Steven Gerrard, a former player for Liverpool, and not Kevin De Bruyne of Manchester City, is the greatest midfielder in Premier League history.



This was O'Hara's response to Jason Cundy, a former Chelsea defender, who claimed that the Belgian international was the greatest Premier League midfielder ever.

For the past six seasons, De Bruyne has been an essential component of Pep Guardiola's team.

In 217 Premier League appearances, the 31-year-old has tallied 58 goals and 92 assists, winning the English top division four times in his career.

Cundy asserted that De Bruyne was the greatest Premier League midfielder ever during a discussion on talkSPORT.

O'Hara, on the other hand, voiced his opinion and refuted Cundy's.

He added that the likes of Paul Scholes, Frank Lampard, Roy Keane, and Patrick Vieira are all ahead of De Bruyne.

O’Hara responded, "Ridiculous." There have been so many amazing players. You’re just thinking [that] because you’re seeing him now. You’re not looking back on the great midfielders that have been in the Premier League. For me, Gerrard was on another planet to any other player that I walked on a football pitch with. "

He added: “Steven Gerrard was unbelievable. He was a machine." I walked off the pitch when I played against him and was like, ‘Oh my word, I’ve come up against a player that I couldn’t get near in any single form of the game.’ Heading, crossing, passing, strength, decision-making, awareness, pace, ability – he had everything. He carried the club [Liverpool] on his back for how many years? "

“De Bruyne is an amazing player and he will go down as one of the greats—but not the greatest." The greatest midfielder the Premier League has ever seen is Steven Gerrard. without a shadow of a doubt. And [Paul] Scholes, [Frank] Lampard, Roy Keane, Patrick Vieira, they’re all above De Bruyne. You can’t say De Bruyne is the greatest when you’ve got those five midfielders ahead of him!”
