Chelsea legend Frank Lampard says winning the title in 2005 is the highlight of his glittering career.
The 36-year-old, who now plies his trade with Manchester City following 13 glorious years at Stamford Bridge, picked the league title win 10 years ago as his best moment.
This might surprise Chelsea fans given the fact Lampard won the Champions League in 2012.

Lampard reveals best moment
Asked what his career highlight has been in an interview with the Premier League’s official website, Lampard said: "Winning the Premier League.”
"Obviously, I was at a fantastic club in Chelsea that had a very good team. I think I joined the club before the Roman Abramovich years, and it became a real golden era,” he added. “I feel fortunate to have been involved in that, so winning the Premier League is the ultimate in terms of what you see growing up, to have a league medal, and to be part of a strong team.”

Lampard: Chelsea's best ever player?
Lampard won the Premier League title on three occasions - in 2005, 2006 and 2010 - as well as four FA Cups, two League Cups, the Europa League and the Champions League.
He was also selected in the PFA Team of the Year on five occasions, named the UEFA Midfielder of the Year in 2008 and finished second behind Ronaldinho in the voting for the 2005 Ballon d’Or.
Undoubtedly one of Chelsea’s best ever players - and quite possibly the very best - Lampard’s legacy has been slightly tarnished this season.
The retired England international was expected to join New York City FC - the newly-formed MLS franchise - in the New Year but has spent the entire campaign at the Etihad Stadium.
Lampard scored the equalising goal for City against Chelsea back in September, and it remains to be seen how pivotal that moment may have been in the grand scheme of things.
Chelsea will win the league without Lampard
The veteran central midfielder, who is Chelsea’s all-time top scorer with 211 goals, is expected to team up with New York City FC at the end of the season.
Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho will prove that he made the right decision to allow Lampard to leave Stamford Bridge by winning the Premier League title in May.
The Blues are currently six points clear of second-placed Man City at the top of the table with ten matches left to play - and are subsequently the odds-on favourites to win the title for the first time since 2010.
