Everton: Journalist highlights new issue for Lampard

Image for Everton: Journalist highlights new issue for Lampard

Journalist Dean Jones has claimed that the sacking of Sean Dyche may have given the club a lift, which could lead to Everton getting relegated.

Everton recently entered the relegation zone, after Burnley have turned their poor form around and are currently three games unbeaten in their last three games in the Premier League. 

Frank Lampard was introduced at Goodison Park following the departure of Rafa Benitez, but the English manager has failed to make a difference and lead the Toffees away from the relegation battle. However, Everton do have a game in hand over Burnley, and if they win then it would take them out of the drop zone.

With the recent good form of Burnley, Dean Jones highlighted to GiveMeSport that it is bad news for Everton that their competitors have picked up form at the right time.

“I think that Everton are in big danger of going down. We will see how Burnley manage to turn the corner, but it seems like getting rid of Dyche has lifted something in the squad.

“I don’t know if it’s a fresh pair of eyes making big decisions and talking to them in the dressing room, but something has changed there and it has given them a lift at the perfect time, which is really bad news for Everton,” Jones said.

TIF Thoughts on Dean Jones’s comments…

Everton are in poor form at the moment, as they have won just one game out of their last five in the Premier League, whilst their main competitors Burnley have made a change in the dugout, which has brought a new lease of life to the club.

It is worrying times for the Toffees because if they get relegated, then it would be likely that they would see a lot of their star players leave the club.

Although Lampard’s side have a chance to move out of the bottom three if they win their game in hand, their relegation rivals have picked up seven points from a possible nine, so if they continue this fine form, then it would be likely that the Toffees would go down. Two tough games against Leicester and Chelsea are next.
