Everton vs Chelsea LIVE: Premier League team news and line-ups as Frank Lampard faces relegation battle


Lampard “will always be a legend in our club,” says Tuchel ahead of the Everton trip

Follow for live updates as everton host Chelsea and Frank Lampard faces his former side at Goodison Park. Burnley’s dramatic comeback at Watford yesterday plunged Everton into deeper relegation troubles and left Lampard’s side five points adrift of safety, so a first meeting with Chelsea as manager comes at a crucial time for the former Blues midfielder.

Everton have relied on their home form at Goodison Park, taking seven points from their last three games in front of their own fans. They welcome a Chelsea side sure to finish third but manager Thomas Tuchel will be demanding improvements from his side after they were wasteful in front of goal in Thursday’s 1-1 draw at Manchester United.

This afternoon’s game is also the first encounter between Lampard and Tuchel, the man who replaced him at Stamford Bridge when he was sacked after just 18 months as Chelsea manager last January. A defeat would be a blow to Everton, who are running out of time to save First League Status. Follow Everton v Chelsea live coverage below, as well as Tottenham v Leicester goal updates.

Tuchel is looking forward to the first meeting with Lampard

Thomas Tuchel has revealed that Sunday’s clash between Goodison Park and Everton will be his first face-to-face meeting with Frank Lampard.

Tuchel’s Chelsea predecessor Lampard sent the German manager good news when the former Paris St Germain manager took the helm at Stamford Bridge in January 2021.

“He sent me a very kind, respectful message after I took over at Chelsea that meant a lot,” Lampard’s Tuchel said.

“I was a huge fan of his as a player and he is and will always be a legend at our club and that goes without saying.

Lampard promises to stay at Everton even if the club are relegated from the Premier League

Frank Lampard is determined to stay at Everton even if they are relegated to the Championship and has vowed to do everything in his power to get them back where he thinks they belong.

Everton have been present in the top flight since 1951 but are at risk of their first relegation in 71 years after falling into the bottom three of the Premier League on Sunday.

They could be five points from safety before Lampard, who signed a two-and-a-half-year contract when appointed in January, takes on his former club Chelsea on Sunday.

But if they go down he wants to stay at Goodison Park and try to win promotion next season.
