Chelsea interim boss Frank Lampard heaped praise on his upcoming hosts but was hesitant to rank them among the best in history.

“I don’t know [whether Manchester City are] the greatest [team] ever, but they are clearly a fantastic team and they have been for a good while now,” said Lampard.

“Huge credit for [their] consistency. On those levels, they are coming close to the greatest team. The form they are in at the minute, you wouldn’t want to bet against them on anything. I think they are the best team in the world [at the moment].”

City’s top scorer Erling Haaland has scored a record-breaking 36 goals in the Premier League this term – exactly the same number of goals as Chelsea have mustered as a team.

“I’ve got huge respect for [Haaland],” added Lampard. “He is a player I tried to bring to Chelsea when I was here. I was very keen to get him but obviously that couldn’t happen. His level was clear when we played against him at Salzburg.

“Credit to him I love seeing players of that level. In terms of having to deal with him you have to have a plan and an idea but players of that level can make anything happen at any moment.”
