Everton boss Lampard: Pickford doesn't get credit he deserves

Everton boss Frank Lampard lavished praise on goalkeeper Jordan Pickford.

The Toffees battled hard against Manchester City at home in the Premier League at the weekend, only to lose 1-0.

Despite the defeat and their precarious position in the table, newly installed boss Lampard chose to look at the positives.

Post-game, Lampard told the club's website: "He was great in all senses. He was calming, with the few catches he made, his distribution was good and, of course, the saves. The two saves back-to-back were absolutely world-class.

"I'm not sure he always gets the credit he should, because they were top-class saves. Everton fans will know that. He is a dream to work with. He gets on with his job, he is professional and gives everything.

"As a manager, I am very happy to be working with a goalkeeper of his level. To be fair, all the goalkeepers – Asmir Begovic, Andy Lonergan and the young lads – are all a really good bunch who support each other. That's a big strength for us."
