Premier League: Everton Sack Frank Lampard
Following Saturday’s 2-0 loss to West Ham, which dropped Everton to 19th place in the Premier League and left them without a victory in 10 games in all competitions, Lampard was fired as manager.
The Toffees lost at the London Stadium, their third straight league loss, prompting Lampard’s resignation. Everton owner Farhad Moshiri attended his first game since October 2021.
The former Chelsea manager joined Everton in January 2022, and although helping the team avoid the relegation zone last season, he leaves Goodison Park with the division’s worst win percentage with 15 points from 20 games and three victories.

Only Southampton is below Everton on the Premier League table as they are now ranked 19th .
Everton supporters protested against the club’s leadership after Jarrod Bowen’s double condemned their team to defeat, but the board of directors responded by firing Lampard.
Speaking to Sky Sports News after that defeat, Moshiri said “it’s not my decision” when asked if Lampard’s time was up, while the head coach insisted he remained focused on the challenge at hand in his final post-match interview.
