Swansea manager Brendan Rodgers has compared Gylfi Sigurdsson to Frank Lampard after the Icelandic midfielder scooped the Barclays Premier League Player of the Month award for March.

Sigurdsson, 22, has been a revelation since joining on loan from Bundesliga side Hoffenheim in January, and has scored six goals in his 10 appearances for the Swans - four of them in March.

Rodgers, who worked at Chelsea as a youth and reserve team coach under Jose Mourinho and Luiz Felipe Scolari, said of Sigurdsson: "He is in the Frank Lampard mould, he gets into the six-yard box, is willing to get his shot off with his left or right foot and can score with his head like he did at Fulham."
