Frank Lampard hails Everton’s ‘fighting spirit’ after a hard-fought win over Manchester United

Everton’s Frank Lampard has hailed his side’s hard-fought victory over Manchester United.

The win ensures that Everton is 4 points clear of the relegation zone and their first win in three matches.

 

Anthony Gordon’s goal in the 27th minute was enough to sink Manchester United way from a top-4 finish.

 

What was said?

Speaking after the match, Lampard told BT sport that:

‘I’m very proud. These are pressure times with the reality of the situation, but at Goodison we’ve been good, the fifth win in seven, getting clean sheets’.

“Away from home is a different aspect but when we come together, the players, the fans here we’re hard to beat.

‘We’ve got loads to do. It’s one win. We should have got a result in the week, you sit there and say, ‘If only’ but when it goes against you have to keep going. 

‘It’s not easy when you wake up after Burnley but it’s my job to lift everyone. It’s one win and we’ve got a lot to do.’ 

Manchester United Coach Ralf Rangnick also shared his disappointment after the game.

 

Rangnick said: ‘If you don’t score a single goal in 95 minutes you have to be disappointed. 

“We had a good start, we were in control of the game for 25 minutes and should have created more chances out of that domination.

‘Then we conceded a deflected shot and lost that little bit of our composure and our stride. 

‘In the second half we were trying to create more creativity but we didn’t always find the right moment or make the right decision.’
