For the first time in his managerial career, the Toffees leader was pitted against his previous team.

Richarlison took advantage of a Cesar Azpilicueta error to score the game’s only goal early in the second half, closing the gap on Leeds and Burnley above them to two points.

Lampard’s place as a Chelsea hero is set after scoring a club-record 211 goals in 13 years in west London, but it didn’t stop him from celebrating the victory enthusiastically at the end of the match.

“I have so much respect for Chelsea and the fans,” Lampard said of his former team in an interview with Sky Sports. So I’m hoping they’ll understand why I’m ecstatic with the win.

“They are aware of this and are aware of it. They rallied behind us, acting aggressively; this must be a difficult place to enter. Before I arrived, the results at Goodison were good, and we need to keep them up.

“We have to fight for points since we are in the relegation zone, and we have to play every game with the same attitude.”

“They [the players] must demonstrate that they care.” That appeals to me. They don’t have to cross the line, but they do have to demonstrate that they care; the supporters want to see it. Because the scenario is clear, I prodded them a little before the game. All of our remaining games must be played at that level. That has to keep flowing in, and if it doesn’t, we have to figure out what’s going on.”

Lampard and Everton had to wait a little longer to enjoy their victory after battling for 90 minutes, as referee Kevin Friend added seven minutes of additional time at the end of the game.
