‘It’s not a crisis’: Frank Lampard insists Everton’s awful form is ‘normal’ despite a 5-0 thrashing at Tottenham leaving them only a point above the Premier League relegation zone

  • Frank Lampard has stated Everton are not in crisis despite the club’s poor form 
  • The Toffees were beaten 5-0 by Tottenham in their last Premier League match 
  • Lampard’s side currently lie just one point above the division’s relegation zone

Frank Lampard has insisted the club is not in crisis despite a disappointing run of results leaving them perilously close to the drop. 

The Toffees lost 5-0 against Tottenham last week, meaning the side lie just one point off the Premier League relegation zone. 

But Lampard, only appointed on January 31, claims their struggles are ‘normal’ ahead of a crucial run of fixtures.

The Toffees were thrashed 5-0 by Tottenham in their last Premier League game on Monday

Speaking ahead of their clash with Wolves on Sunday, he said: ‘It’s not a crisis. It’s very normal and I did have bad ones (situations). I don’t need to name them but had some bad personal ones, team ones. 

‘That happens in football & in the position that we’re in. I didn’t think we’d win 15 on the bounce & get into the Europa League positions.

‘You have to be very candid with the players and they should want that because nobody liked Monday night. I had them as a player.

They will come along again but… that was something to watch. Not comfortable viewing but it’s part of our job’.

Everton have lost seven of their last eight league games, with a 3-0 win against vulnerable Leeds the only shred of positivity in their recent results.

Lampard’s men do, however, have three games in hand on 19th- and 20th-placed Watford and Norwich and one game in hand on 18th-placed Burnley.
