Believing that Everton needed the win much more than Thomas Tuchel’s side, Lampard said: “I have so much respect for Chelsea and the fans. So I hope they understand me getting excited with the win.
“We needed it today, more than them. I have to be honest. For me, it was all about Everton today. Three points are so critical to us, when you see what it means to our fans’ lives”
“They are always a team that will put you under pressure late on. We did brilliantly. The team, stadium, the fans were man of the match today. From the drive in to the support, which we need. Thanks to them.”
Chelsea will be looking to get back to winning ways against Wolves on Saturday and face Everton’s relegation rivals Leeds United before the end of the season, with the opportunity to give Lampard a favour n their hunt for survival.
