Chelsea legend Frank Lampard was the mastermind as Everton picked up their first win of the season in the Premier League. Everton boss Frank Lampard and his players recorded their first three points of the season thanks to the slim win over West Ham United.

Frank Lampard has not had it all rosy since he was appointed the Everton manager at the start of this year. The ex-Chelsea manager was under serious pressure to keep the club in the Premier League at the end of last season and he managed to achieve it with a game to spare. Premier League football was achieved for one more season thanks to the 3-2 comeback win over London team Crystal Palace in their penultimate league game of the season. The home win over Palace ensured that Everton were not in danger of suffering relegation from the Premier League on the final day of the season.

In the summer, Everton had a lot of issues with signing players due to FFP (Financial Fair Play). In the end, they were able to make some shrewd signings including the experienced defensive duo of ConorCoady and James Tarkowski.
Everton conducted a lot of their transfer business late in this summer's transfer window and that led to a slow start to the Premier League campaign this season with two straight defeats. Everton started the season with a 1-0 defeat at home to London team Chelsea courtesy the penalty from Italian midfielder Jorginho in first half added time. The home loss to the Blues was followed by the 2-1 defeat at the home of Aston Villa.
Everton picked up their first point of the season with the 1-1 draw at home to Nottingham Forest. Three draws then followed against the likes of Brentford, Leeds United and Liverpool before the West Ham game on Sunday. The Brentford and Leeds games ended 1-1, while the Merseyside Derby clash with Liverpool at home ended goalless.
Frank Lampard and his Everton players secured their first win of the new Premier League season thanks to the second half strike from new signing Neal Maupay. The Frenchman scored the winning goal eight minutes into the second half to lead Everton to a 1-0 victory over the Hammers.
