Lampard Slams Iwobi, Others After 4-0 Defeat To Crystal Palace

Everton manager, Frank Lampard has questioned the courage of Alex Iwobi and his teammates, following a 4-0 drubbing in the hands of Crystal Palace in the FA Cup.
The Toffees, who claimed a sensational 1-0 win over Newcastle in the Premier League in midweek, were poor as Patrick Vieira’s men qualified for the semi-finals of the competition.

Iwobi played for 17 minutes at Selhurst Park, as goals from Marc Guehi, Jean-Philippe Mateta, Wilfried Zaha and Will Hughes ensured they missed out on a trip to Wembley.

Lampard has now made it clear he does not have a β€œmagic wand” to fix their lack of resilience.

β€œI don’t have a magic wand to get inside people’s heads and change resilience across the whole squad. That’s a work in progress.

β€œThe difficult thing for us is that we don’t have lots of time in terms of the league to do that.

β€œMy job title is quite vast as a manager, but to get inside heads and change that with the flick of a switch is not possible.

β€œAs frustrating as it is for me, as frustrating as it is for the 4,000 fans who travelled down and the people watching [at home], that’s one we have to fight against,” L

ampard said.
