Here we look at the numbers that show why he is a Premier League legend.
Lampard is one of only three players to make 600 Premier League appearances, and lies third in the all-time list after Ryan Giggs (632) and Gareth Barry (615).
Of his 177 goals, 147 came at Chelsea, where he won three titles in 13 seasons. Only three players have scored more PL goals for a single club.
Lampard was the first player to score at least 10 goals in 10 successive Premier League campaigns, between 2003/04 and 2012/13, returning a season’s best 22 goals in 2009/10.
But it was not only the quantity of goals that earned Lampard his status.
He also scored 41 PL goals from outside the penalty area, the highest tally for a player in the competition.
Also, only Shearer (56) scored more penalties than Lampard's 43.
Another Premier League record of his is that he scored against 39 different opponents in the competition.
His favourite were Aston Villa, against whom he scored 13 times, including four in March 2010.
That four-goal display was the second time Lampard managed that feat, one of only eight players to do so in the Premier League, after scoring four times against Derby County two years earlier.
Lampard also impressed with his creativity. In 2004/05, he provided 18 assists, a tally only Thierry Henry (20, in 2002/03) and Mesut Ozil (19, in 2015/16) have exceeded.
In total, only Giggs (162) produced more PL assists more than Lampard's 102.
