Lampard to discover Everton fate in 24 hours after bosses hold crisis meeting

Frank Lampard is sweating on his job at Everton as the club’s board consider his position in the Goodison Park hotseat.

The under-fire Toffees boss is set to learn his fate in the next 24 hours. The Blues hierarchy are discussing whether or not to sack the former Chelsea midfielder after Saturday’s defeat by West Ham.

Lampard’s side have now won just one game in 14 and are 19th in the Premier League. It looked like he would face the axe after a home defeat by Brighton earlier this month.

But Lampard then got the public backing of owner Farhad Moshiri when he called for stability. However, the Blues have lost three games since, including back-to-back defeats by relegation rivals Southampton and West Ham.

Moshiri and the club’s board have been discussing his future since the defeat by the Hammers at the London Stadium. The Iranian billionaire was in attendance at an Everton game on Saturday for the first time since October 2021.

The club are considering other candidates who could come in and take over if they dismiss Lampard. They are also aware that there is just over a week to go in the January transfer window.

So they can’t waste time in appointing a manager while they also have to pull off some player signings on a restricted budget. Villarreal striker Arnaut Danjuma is set to arrive on loan this week but Lampard wants further additions if he stays on.

A new manager is also likely to demand signings as director of football Kevin Thelwell continues to work on targets.

But whatever business Everton do in the transfer window, they will need to start putting results together if they are to maintain their place in the top flight.
