After Steven Gerrard, it is time for Frank Lampard to say goodbye to the Premier League.
The former England international stayed on beyond December with Manchester City in highly controversial manner, but is not set to exit Manchester City and the Premier League for sure.
The game against Southampton will be his last in the league where he has won almost everything with Chelsea. Lampard, who has more than 600 Premier League appearances under his belt, will join MLS side New York FC in the summer.

Manchester City are certain to remain second in the Premier League as they fail to defend their Premier League crown this season with Jose Mourinho’s Chelsea winning the league with rather ease.
Uncertainty regarding the future of Manuel Pellegrini remains but the hosts would look to get all three points from the game to finish their season on a winning note.
Southampton have enjoyed a remarkable yet a frustrating season under Ronald Koeman.
They were in the top three for the majority of the season and are now en route towards missing out on European football altogether.
They need a win in this game with Spurs losing their game on Sunday, to qualify for the Europa League next season.
However, an Arsenal win in the FA Cup final against Aston Villa will mean that the Saints will be playing in Europe next season as it will allow seventh place team in England to play the Europa League.
Manchester City are without Fernando, who also missed the trip to Swansea last week. Samir Nasri is also unavailable for the match due to a groin injury.
Southampton will again be without the services of Dusan Tadic and Morgan Schneiderlin, who are out with groin and knee injuries respectively.
Fraser Forster is still some time away from full recovery.
