The 44-year-old replaced Rafael Benítez in January 2022 and went on to manage 44 games for the toffees winning 12.

Everton have won three games in the Premier league this season which ultimately leaves them in 19th place, level on points with rock-bottom Southampton. No side has won fewer games than the Merseyside club.

The toffees have also been knocked out in both domestic cup competitions. Lampard’s side suffered a 4-1 away defeat to Bournemouth in the fourth round of the Carabao Cup (EFL Cup) and earlier this month they lost 3-1 away at Old Trafford in the third round of the FA Cup.

Everton are now looking for their sixth permanent manager in five years.

Lampard has now been relieved of his duties for the second time as a manager with Chelsea sacking the Englishman in January 2021 following a poor run of form.
