David Beckham and Steven Gerrard was today inducted into the Premier League Hall of Fame. 

Beckham is the latest United legend to be inducted into the Premier League Hall of Fame, following after Eric Cantona and Roy Keane were both included. 

Garrard becomes the first former Red to be inducted into the Hall of Fame, which was recently launched to celebrate the league's finest players since its inception in 1992. 

Beckham edged out Paul Scholes, Rio Ferdinand and Peter Schmeichel and to be United's third representative. 

"It's an honour to be inducted into the inaugural Premier League Hall of Fame alongside these legends of the game and league," Beckham told the Premier League. 

"The Premier League was such an important part of my career and life and I'm delighted to be recognised alongside these icons who I played with, competed with and looked up to. 

"This is made even more of an honour for me knowing that it was down to the fans.

"This past year or so has shown just how important fans are to the game and it's so great to see them slowly being able to come back to stadiums because they make football truly special, Beckham said.

Meanwhile, the ex-Liverpool captain takes his place following a combined vote of supporters and a Premier League panel from a 23-person shortlist. 

He becomes the first former Red to be inducted into the Hall of Fame, which was recently launched to celebrate the league's finest players since its inception in 1992. 

Gerrard progressed through the ranks at Liverpool's Academy to become one of the greatest midfielders to ever grace the Premier League. 

He made 504 PL appearances after making his debut aged 18 in November 1998, spent 17 years with the reds. 

During his time Gerrard scored 120 goals, also registering 92 assists.
