Conor Coady admits Everton are in a 'bad place' after Man United loss

Conor Coady admits Everton are in a ‘bad place’ following ‘gutting’ FA Cup defeat to Manchester United… but insists the team ‘need to keep fighting’ for under-pressure boss Frank Lampard

  • Conor Coady has backed Frank Lampard after Everton’s loss to Man United 
  • 29-year-old scored the club’s only goal as they fell to a 3-1 defeat at Old Trafford
  • But despite the result Coady insisted Lampard ‘understands the football club’

Conor Coady has voiced his support for Everton boss Frank Lampard following the club’s 3-1 defeat to Manchester United.

With the club struggling to stay afloat in the Premier League, Friday’s visit to Old Trafford in the FA Cup offered the Toffees the opportunity for a reprieve but it did not come.

Despite an improved performance in contrast to their defeat to Brighton last week, Lampard’s side were once again beaten, with a Marcus Rashford penalty in injury time capping off a 3-1 win for United.

Coady levelled the game on 14 minutes after Antony gave the hosts an early lead before scoring an own goal to put Erik ten Hag’s team back in front.

Following the game, the England international insisted the club needs to march on. ‘We need to keep fighting, we are in a bad way, bad place and everyone wants to get out of it.

‘We came here with a plan and stuck to it. To lose the game to an own goal and penalty, it is gutting.’

Despite the defeat, the Wolves loanee voiced his support for Lampard and insisted the former Chelsea boss ‘understands the football club’

The defender, currently on loan from Wolves, voiced his support for Lampard in spite of the club’s recent poor run of form.

‘We are not enjoying it and need to get out of it quickly. The manager is fantastic with all of us, outstanding, and he understands the football club. We need to keep listening to him.’

The club will look to rebound on the Premier League’s return when they take on fellow strugglers Southampton at Goodison Park on Saturday.
