That is the view of West Ham captain Mark Noble, who reckons the former Reds star was a better ‘all-around’ player than the other two.
All three players lit up the Premier League throughout their careers which led to an ongoing debate about which one was better.
Gerrard did not have as many trophies to show for his efforts than the other two and ended his career without a Premier League title.
But many believe his talismanic style of play is the deciding factor when it comes to choosing which one of the three is the best.
And it seems Noble is no different after his comments on the matter in a Q and A from West Ham's Twitter account.
"Trust me when I say you only realise how good a player is when you play against them," Noble said when asked about his opinions on the trio.
"All three were top, top players in their own right but all-round player, Stevie G was the complete footballer."
Noble also named Gerrard as the best player he's come up against, while listing Carlos Tevez and Dimitri Payet as the best he's played alongside.
Gerrard played 504 Premier League games for Liverpool, scoring 121 goals and creating 70 assists.
His crowning moment in a red shirt was probably captaining the Reds to Champions League glory with that astonishing comeback against AC Milan in 2005.
But the two wonder goals to help beat West Ham in the FA Cup final a couple years later were not far behind that night in Istanbul.
