Everton: Frank Lampard

Everton boss Frank Lampard talks about the importance of survival in the Premier League after taking over the job from Rafael Benitez in January. The rebuild of the club had to be put on the back-burner as they inched towards the relegation zone. Everton was one of the founding members of the Premier League and it was inconceivable to see them drop out of the division.

“It is a step forward because going into the Chelsea game [a 1-0 victory on May 1], it looked different. We had those games in hand, but you’d rather have points in your pocket. I think it’s been a really good reaction from that tough moment. Players have reacted on the pitch, fans have reacted, and it’s been a very unified club feel,” Everton boss Frank Lampard said. “We’ve picked up seven points in the three most recent games, we’re happy with that. Slightly disappointed at Watford, but it’s put us in a decent place. We have to guard against complacency because the situation can flip very quickly. We know we’re in the critical phase of the season. Our focus has to be complete; cut out all the noise. I have to listen to the noise maybe, but the players can cut it out and turn up Sunday ready to perform.”

“Playing against Everton as a player, it was always a difficult place to come. I knew that this is a region of the country where football is life for people,” he added. “So, I understood that. But to feel it first hand, it’s been extraordinary. The backing of the fans at this moment has played a huge part. It can’t help but endear you to the club and take it into your heart. It drags you in and you want to do it for them, to a big degree.”
