Everton team news
- Fabian Delph (thighs) returns to Everton for the first time since January
- Seamus Coleman (ill) will be available, but it’s not clear if he’s fit enough to start
- Donnie van de Beck (thigh) is not available for Burnley
- Nathan Patterson could be out for the season scheduled for ankle surgery this week
Asked if he agreed with fans, Lampard said it was Everton’s biggest game in 10 years Sky Sports News: “I think we’ve got 10 of them, so obviously they can say it. No problem.
“I don’t think it’s a problem to make the game, it’s a reality.
“As a staff and as a player, we have to have some mentality. There is nothing wrong with that, we understand the situation we are in, we will communicate with it in the right way and we will understand its importance. “
Speaking at an earlier press conference, Lampard added: “This is very important [to be mentally ready] Because it’s a big deal. We are fighting at the bottom of the table to try to stay in the league.
“It’s been a while, but with each game it gets more intense. The squad will be very focused and very understanding of what we are going to do. “
Lampard’s advice on winning
Everton have the worst record in the Premier League, collecting just six points since the start of the season, making their task even more difficult on Wednesday night.
Lampard has so far failed to support the trend since Rafa Benitez was replaced in late January, with Tofis losing all five of their games to Goodison Park, scoring only twice in that time.
But the former Chelsea and derby boss gave some advice to his players on how to change their fortunes before the Burnley trip.
“The way you react to Goodison, the way you react to the hostile crowd that supports you,” Lampard said. “Sometimes it can just be a good feeling.
“We will also have travel fans, who will support us with a huge passion and desire to see the right results. So it shouldn’t be a problem. “
‘It’s not rocket science’ – Deutsch on Burnley’s goal-scoring problem
For the crucial tour of Everton on Wednesday, Burnley manager Shaun Deutsch is urging his players to put their goal-scoring concerns behind them.
Monday 11th April 1:30 am
The Clarits have not scored in the Premier League for more than 400 minutes – a goal from Crystal Palace midfielder Luka Milivojevic.
Asked if he could demand more from his forwards, Deutsch said: “Yes – kick it in the net. It’s not rocket science. “
However, Deutsch acknowledges that coaching “goal editing” in front of the goal is “the hardest bit” as a manager.
Burnley team news
- Ben Mi will be missing again. The Burnley captain has been sidelined for the last three games due to a knee injury and is not ready to return.
- Nathan Collins is available again after a one-match ban.
- Matej Vidra could return to the team after his elbow was dislocated in training, but Eric Peters (knee) and midfielder Johan Berg Goodmundsson (Calf) are still out.
“You’re taking the players to the right place, doing the right things to give the team a chance to score, and then the final moment is the challenge and that’s where we want our players to stand and take responsibility, because they’ve done it so many times,” he said.
“The whole team can score a goal and the whole team can defend.
“We ask a lot of our players, so it’s not just about Watts, (Weghorst) J-Rod (J Rodriguez) and Barnsi (Ashley Burns) and these guys, it’s about everyone on the team who responded to score a goal.”
