‘It might sound ridiculous’ – Paul Merson now drops bold Everton claim

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.’
