Frank Lampard ‘in big trouble’ but Everton told to not sack him ‘no matter what’ after defeat to Wolves continues Toffees’ woeful form

    Everton have been told NOT to sack Frank Lampard despite being plunged into further trouble following defeat to lowly Wolves.

    The Toffees suffered a 2-1 defeat against their relegation rivals, with Rayan Ait-Nouri grabbing the winner in the fifth minute of stoppage-time.

    The result sees Julen Lopetegui’s men are up to 18th in the Premier League table, just a point behind 17th-placed Everton.

    More questions about Lampard’s future at the club will no doubt be raised with Everton suffering seven defeats in their last nine outings but talkSPORT’s Dean Saunders insists the club’s top brass should stick with their man.

    “Obviously Frank Lampard is in big trouble but I wouldn’t sack him no matter what. He’s trying to get this team on the right track,” Saunders said on commentary for talkSPORT 2.

    “They’ve missed chances today, they should’ve won. The cutting edge is not there.”

    “They can’t keep changing managers,” Saunders added. “It’s just ridiculous, they’ve got to give someone a chance to repair the damage that’s been done.

    “Frank Lampard knows he’s got to get it right and he will.”

    Everton could well find themselves in the relegation zone by the end of 2022 with their next outing seeing them face Manchester City on December 31.
