West Ham United skipper Mark Noble, who went up against all three of them, is the latest to weigh in on the debate, with the 32-year-old naming Gerrard as his favourite.

"Trust me when I say you only realise how good a player is when you play against them," he said in a Q&A on West Ham's official Twitter account.

"All three were top, top players in their own right, but all-round player, Stevie G was the complete footballer."
