Everton manager Frank Lampard hails the Merseyside fans after an incredible win against Brentford in his first game in charge.

Everton defeated Brentford 4-1 in the FA Cup to qualify for the next round of the competition.

Goals from Yerry Mina, Richarlison, Mason Holgate and Andros Townsend – after Ivan Toney’s penalty had briefly made it 2-1 – secured the biggest win on debut by any Toffees boss.

It was the team’s largest victory against top-flight opposition since beating West Ham by the same scoreline in the Carabao Cup in September 2020 and had supporters singing “Super Frankie Lampard” in the second half and at 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,” said the former Chelsea boss.

“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 and we wanted to produce that today and the players did.

“But as much as I was proud of the performance and it gets me excited, I have to calm down now and work towards the league games.”

The only downside on an otherwise positive day was an injury to Ben Godfrey, who Lampard revealed sustained an issue with his hamstring.
