Everton: Frank Lampard, fires up his squad and the supporters ahead of the club’s crucial fixture against Crystal Palace

Everton can avoid relegation on Thursday, if the club manages to get three points against Crystal Palace. Knowing the importance of the fixture, Everton manager Frank Lampard delivered inspiring words of support to his team and the fans.

“I am sure the supporters will be coming with everything, maybe even a bit more than they have in the past few weeks,” said Lampard.

“We really appreciate that and it is such a big push for us… and we will try to make it a special night at Goodison.

“Historically, it could be a big night for us, because we know the situation.

“The players have to turn up and play with the same passion and fight as every Evertonian in the stadium.

“We need 11 Evertonians on the pitch – and [Evertonians as] subs.

“The players have to understand the occasion and tap into it. It is not the fifth game of the season, when you are trying to get yourself going.

“It is critical. We need to use that and the fact there is pressure on us, in a good way.

“The fanbase is backing us. [Use that support and] play with control on top of that.

“That is the balance.

“We are playing a game we love, and that means we are up for big pressure moments.

“It could be the same feeling after this game, as if we win something special down the line.

“I’ve had opportunities to win Champions League finals, Premier Leagues, play-off semi-finals [as Derby County manager].

“You can’t say one feeling is better than another.

“When you can achieve something, it is a moment, you have to try to get it.”
