Frank Lampard praised Everton’s fans for having an impact on the players and their performance as Everton secured a crucial 1-0 win against Chelsea to keep their survival hopes alive.


Everton manager Frank Lampard insists there is still a long way to go in the battle to avoid relegation from the Premier League despite his side’s crucial 1-0 victory over Chelsea.


A hugely-significant 1-0 win came courtesy of Richarlison’s fourth goal in five matches and a brilliant second-half goalkeeping performance from Jordan Pickford.

Lampard’s side have taken 10 points from the last 12 at home and a raucous Goodison, both outside before the game and inside throughout, will play a huge part in their future with two more home matches remaining.


Burnley and Leeds, with an inferior goal difference, are only two points away and Everton have a match in hand – at home to Crystal Palace three days before the final day of the season – so their destiny remains in their hands.

However, Lampard remains cautious.


“I don’t know what is in your hands around the bottom of the table,” the Everton boss added.

“If it was Liverpool and Manchester City you’d think they would win every game and then in your hands is great at that point. But are we expecting Burnley to win every game? At the minute maybe yeah! Are we expecting Leeds to win every game?

“It think it is hard to say what is in our hands and that’s because we can only control certain things – and that’s when we play.

“That’s the difficult thing about yesterday, we can’t control Burnley. We can’t control Leeds. We can only control ourselves. Of the five games we will have to control ourselves well enough to get enough points. We don’t know what that (total) is.

“My feeling is there is a long way to go.
