Frank Lampard on the verge of Everton sack after 'incredible' development - pundit

Frank Lampard is on the verge of being sacked by Everton after another “really poor” result.

That’s according to former Hibernian striker Tam McManus, speaking exclusively to Football Insider about the Toffees’ boss’ future.

Everton slumped to a 3-0 defeat against Bournemouth on Saturday (12 November), leaving the club one point and one place above the relegation zone.

Lampard’s side finished 16th last season after a late flurry of wins though the majority of the season was spent in the relegation zone.

McManus fears we could see a repeat of last season amid a run of worrying results at Everton.

“I think he is one of those managers we could see leave soon,” McManus told Football Insider‘s Ben Wild.

“When you are at a big club like Everton and you start to drift towards that bottom three, they are just outside of it, luckily for him.

“Everton are a huge club in English football and they are struggling to score goals. I think it is 11 in 15. The defensive record isn’t that bad. They are solid, they just can’t score goals.

“Everton fans are really frustrated with their attackers, we saw how they treated Iwobi at the weekend, incredible stuff. It was a really poor result, Bournemouth were below them in the table before the game.

“They can’t afford to be relegated so I think if they drop into the relegation zone after the break then we will see them sack the manager.”

The Toffees have won three of their 15 Premier League games this season.

They return after the World Cup break with a game against Wolves on Boxing Day.
