Everton manager Frank Lampard has not been good enough at the club since his appointment at the start of the year according to Andy Gray. The former Everton player talked about Frank Lampard on the Gary Newborn Sports Show with Jewson earlier this week as the Toffees try to stay in the Premier League.

Television pundit Gray is not confident that Everton would be able to survive relegation from the English top flight this season with the club two points adrift of the last safe place currently held by Burnley though it must be pointed out that the Clarets have played one more game than Everton.

Everton came into their last league game with a one-point lead over Burnleyonly for them lose while the Clarets secured victory to move out of the relegation zone. The Toffees were beaten 2-0 by Liverpool in the Merseyside Derbywith second half goals from Andy Robertson and substitute DivockOrigi. Burnley were able to move two points clear of Everton having played a game more thanks to the slender 1-0 home win over Wolves courtesy the second half goal from MatejVydra of the Czech Republic.

The appointment of Frank Lampard as the Everton manager has not worked out as expected after picking up just ten points in 12 games though four of those points were recorded in the last three matches. Chelsea legend Lampard has picked up just three wins in the league during his time at Goodison Park. He has wins against Leeds United, Manchester United and Newcastle United.

Merseyside giants Everton gave spent the most consecutive years in the English top flight outside North London side Arsenal. Everton have been in the top flight since 1951and their 71-year stay is under serious threat ahead of the final month of Premier League football this season.
