On Wednesday, reigning Uefa Europa League champions Chelsea will take on Uefa Champions League holders Liverpool in the first-ever all-English Uefa Super Cup.

Blues manager Frank Lampard spoke to ahead of the clash, and reserved special praise for Messi and two of the Argentine forward's former Barca teammates.

Lampard, a former Chelsea star, was asked a number of questions relating to his playing career with the London club, and revealed who the best players he ever faced were.

"Can I give you two answers? It'll actually be three," Lampard told

"The first one is (Lionel) Messi because he was the most incredible player – it was like you were playing against someone who's not on the same level as all of us. 

"The two players I always remember having the hardest time against were Xavi and (Andres) Iniesta at Barcelona. 

"They just played football around you, and you didn't get near them. It was football that wasn't normal to me; it was different from anything else I came up against."
