Buzzing Frank Lampard sends message to fans as he names three star Everton men crucial to win

Frank Lampard feels Everton have finally found an answer to their supporters’ demands after praising three men in particular for their vital 1-0 win over Manchester United at Goodison Park.

The mood around the Toffees has been increasingly somber due to a barren streak. That has pushed the Toffees straight into the relegation mix, a fact emphasized by Wednesday’s frustrating 3-2 loss at Burnley. Thus, Saturday’s lunchtime game against the Red Devils took on greater importance.

As it was, a deflected shot from Anthony Gordon was enough to seal a crucial 1-0 win. You can see how we rate Everton’s performance here.

talking to the bbc game of the day After the game, Lampard was understandably delighted with the victory.

Lampard had faced questions about his future this week.but he hopes that victory has answered them in some way.

Furthermore, Lampard also feels that the victory was the perfect answer for his fans, who have asked for more from the players.

“It feels very good. Great win, great day,” Lampard said. “The reality of our position is clear, that could be felt in the stadium. The fighting spirit and the qualities that we show are great for us. We need to replicate that. If we continue along the same lines, we are safe”.

Lampard is well aware of the qualities of the match winner Gordon and singled him out for praise.

Praise for Delph and Pickford

However, the Toffees boss was also quick to praise the expertise of Fabian Delph and Jordan Pickford.

“In these situations I am the biggest defender of youth and young players, but the balance of the team is important.

“Experienced players make a big difference. They’ve been around the block. [Fabian] Delph brought it to us with his positional game. [Jordan] Pickford also made a save at the end, which is why he is England’s number one.

“A game awaited us in which we didn’t start so well and we scored a goal, which was a detour. It was important for the performance to be that way today to show that the players know how to dig in and win games.

“We should have had points in both games [at Burnley and West Ham]. The easy reaction abroad is negative. What I learned about myself is that you have to be positive, keep the guys positive. The boys are desperate to do well at this club. An error here and there is normal. When they fight like they did today, they can do great things.

“We have won some games and we have not gone back. A very difficult game awaits us at home against Leicester. I’m not sitting here saying that everything is fine and we’re fine. We have to go back with the same attitude and get the points we need to continue at the top”.

Lampard has a message for Anthony Gordon and Everton fans

Lampard also reserved praise for the young star. Gordon.

The 21-year-old now has four goals under his belt this season, but few as important as Saturday’s.

“He is mature. You talk to Anthony for five or ten minutes and you understand,” Lampard said. “His attitude of his is fantastic and his attitude of his is great. The crowd is attracted to him, not because he is a local boy, but because the attitude of his is contagious”.

Lampard insists that Saturday’s victory also sends a message to the Everton fans and insists there are few better stadiums in the Premier League.

However, he says his players need to give fans a reason to cheer.

“It’s huge,” he said of the atmosphere fans can create. “One of the reasons we are good here is because of the fans. Some moaning is normal everywhere.

“What the fans relate to is the reaction. When they see that, we see this thing united in the stadium. We need to replicate that in some way.”
