Paul Merson has admitted in his latest Sportskeeda column that he’s impressed by Frank Lampard’s work at Everton, writes the TIF.
That line may well come as a shock to a lot of people considering that Everton only survived on the penultimate day of the season last time out and thus far, the Toffees are yet to win a league game under Lampard.
This is also despite spending £70 million on new signings, although a lot of that was from cash brought in from last season’s top scorer Richarlison being sold to Tottenham Hotspur for a mammoth £60 million.
Despite their winless start to the season, Merson has admitted he’s been impressed by Lampard during his time at Goodison Park.
‘It might sound ridiculous, but I appreciate what Frank Lampard has done as Everton manager so far. They are getting harder to beat and he’s got his team working hard, which is only a good sign. Everton got a great result against Liverpool in the Merseyside derby – they just have to hang in there and keep fighting it out to get points on the board.’
