Frank Lampard remains optmistic after dropping points against Watford

Frank Lampard has guided Everton to a position in which they are favourites to survive relegation. As long as the club wins any of their remaining 2 games, they will stay up. The club did drop points in their most recent fixture against Watford. However, the former Chelsea man does not seem to be worried.

“It is a step forward because going into the Chelsea game [a 1-0 victory on May 1], it looked different,” Lampard said. “We had those games in hand, but you’d rather have points in your pocket.

“I think it’s been a really good reaction from that tough moment. Players have reacted on the pitch, fans have reacted, it’s been a very unified club feel.

“We’ve picked up seven points in the three most recent games, we’re happy with that. Slightly disappointed at Watford, but it’s put us in a decent place. We have to guard against complacency because the situation can flip very quickly.

“We know we’re in the critical phase of the season. Our focus has to be complete; cut out all the noise. I have to listen to the noise maybe, but the players can cut it out and turn up Sunday ready to perform. Two games at Goodison is a good thing for us, with our fans behind us.”

Frank Lampard: This is a region of the country where football is life for people

“I was aware [of the fanbase] when I came here – I knew the club’s history.

“Playing against Everton as a player, it was always a difficult place to come. I knew that this is a region of the country where football is life for people.

“So, I understood that. But to feel it first hand, it’s been extraordinary. The backing of the fans in this moment has played a huge part. It can’t help but endear you to the club and take it into your heart. It drags you in and you want to do it for them, to a big degree.”
