Everton sack Frank Lampard after West Ham defeat with Wayne Rooney among favourites to take over

Everton have sacked Frank Lampard after Saturday’s 2-0 defeat to West Ham, with the club 19th in the Premier League.

The Toffees are winless in 10 games in all competitions, representing the worst run of Lampard’s short managerial career.

It is understood Wayne Rooney is in the running to take over, with former Burnley boss Sean Dyche also among the favourites.

Majority owner Farhad Moshiri made a rare appearance in the stands at the London Stadium – the first live game he had attended in 14 months – alongside chairman Bill Kenwright.

When asked about Lampard’s future by Sky Sports, Moshiri gave a cryptic reply: “I can’t comment, it’s not my decision.”

The ex-Chelsea head coach took the reins at Goodison Park less than a year ago and was quickly handed a series of high-profile but floundering signings, including Dele Alli and Donny van de Beek.

Everton narrowly avoided relegation in May, finishing 16th and just four points above the drop zone. Survival was sealed with a dramatic 3-2 victory over Crystal Palace.

Next Everton manager odds

Odds per Betfair on 23 January:

  • Sean Dyche: 7-4
  • Duncan Ferguson: 3-1
  • Marcelo Bielsa: 10-3
  • Wayne Rooney: 17-2
  • David Moyes: 10-1
  • Nuno Espirito Santo, Sam Allardyce, Domenico Tedesco: 14-1
  • Ange Postecoglou: 25-1

The summer transfer window saw the departure of Richarlison and the atmosphere has become toxic since the World Cup, with protests against the board being held after the home defeat to Southampton.

Yet this season has once again brought Everton alarmingly close to losing their status as one of just six clubs never to have been relegated from the Premier League, having lost their two matches to fellow relegation candidates Southampton and West Ham. Whoever takes over will face league-leaders Arsenal in their first game before travelling to Anfield for the Merseyside derby on 13 February.
