Lampard starts Everton reign with FA Cup win over Brentford
Frank Lampard made a winning start to his Everton reign as Brentford were beaten 4-1 in the FA Cup fourth round at Goodison Park on Saturday.
Lampard, who was hired on Monday to replace the sacked Rafael Benitez watched as Yerry Mina headed Everton’s opener in the 31st minute.
Richarlison doubled Everton’s advantage from Allan’s pass three minutes after half-time, with Brentford reducing the deficit through Ivan Toney’s 54th-minute penalty.
The 43-year-old was punching the air in delight eight minutes later when Mason Holgate headed in Demarai Gray’s corner.
Lampard’s last Chelsea match was also in the FA Cup fourth round, a victory over Luton, but this was a far more uplifting affair.
Everton fans serenaded him with chants of “Super Frankie Lampard” before Andros Townsend bagged their fourth goal in stoppage-time.
