Premier League legends Frank Lampard and Steven Gerrard were both providing punditry during Chelsea's 1-1 against Barcelona in the Champions League last Tuesday night at Stamford Bridge.

"Having played against him, in the end you stop pressing him because it's just so frustrating", said the BT Sport pundit.

Moreover, in comparison to N'Golo Kante, who is regarded by many as the best defensive midfielder in the Premier League, Busquets completed 103 more passes than the France global, whilst maintaining a passing accuracy of a whopping 92%.

The defensive midfielder does, however, play a key role in how La Blaugrana play their football - winning the ball back when Barca lose it and passing it on to more risky personnel who play alongside him.

"He didn't break sweat".

Lampard was in full agreement with his fellow compatriot, as the ex-Chelsea star added: "He plays in second gear, and I mean it in a positive way, because everything is so easy for him".

So the next time someone tells you that Busqests is only there to make up the numbers, feel free to show them this.
