Frank Lampard at Everton

The former Chelsea manager has been unveiled as the replacement for Rafa Benitez.

The Spaniard was sacked after just six months in charge after the Toffees’ slumped to 16th in the Premier League table.

Although, Lampard is now 10/1 from 14/1 to lead Everton into the top half by the end of the season.


The Toffees are also a 15/8 shot to go unbeaten in their first three games under Lampard against Brentford, Newcastle and Leeds.

Relegation Odds Ease

The threat of relegation has also eased according to the latest betting, which rates Everton as 9/2 shots to drop to the Championship from 4/1 just 24 hours ago.

Donny Van de Beek is set to join Lampard at Goodison Park after undergoing a medical.

The Toffees’ transfer deadline day activity could be far from over with Dele Alli plummeting into 4/6 from 7/1.

A return to the club for Ross Barkley however is getting less likely. He is now 4/1 from 9/4 on Monday morning to make the move back to Everton.
