Everton boss Frank Lampard revealed that he will never forget his first win over Brentford in the FA Cup. It was their largest margin of victory against a team from the top flight since September 2020. The Goodison Park faithful found their voice with chants of “Super Frankie Lampard ringing out at half-time and the final whistle.
“I can only thank the fans for their support of me from the moment I walked out and of course at the end, seeing the team perform the way it did,” Everton boss Frank Lampard said. “It’s a day I’ll never forget, it was very special, and I can’t help but get caught up in the emotion of that for the moment. We all hear about the Goodison effect and I’ve felt it on the other side we wanted to produce that today and the players did. But as much as I was proud of the performance and it gets me exciting, I have to calm down now and work towards the league games.”
“What a start for Frank Lampard. The crowd was buzzing, the stadium was rocking. It ticked the boxes for Everton,” Paul Merson said. “A good performance from Everton, and like you’d expect at Everton. I’ve played there a lot of times, and it’s a hard place to play when they get it right. It’s a massive lift for Everton. I’ve never seen Richarlison make so many runs in behind, and no defender wants to keep running back to goal. It opened the game up, allowing (Demarai) Gray and (Andre) Gomes to get on the ball. Back to their best.”
