Former Manchester United defender Rio Ferdinand believes Everton manager Frank Lampard could be next in line to be sacked after Southampton dumped Ralph Hasenhüttl.

The Austrian was shown the way out after a series of poor results, the latest being a 4-1 loss at home against Newcastle, Everton themselves have also not been very convincing under Frank Lampard.

Everton have been largely inconsistent this season and have just one win and one draw from their last six outings.
Ferdinand believes that a lack of creativity is preventing Frank Lampard’s side from pulling the strings of victories together.
On his podcast, the former CB highlighted the unimpressive trio of

Maupay, McNeil and Gordon say they have fallen short of Alex Iwobi, Everton’s most creative player.

“I think the biggest obstacle Frank has right now is a lack of creativity and goals,” Ferdinand said.
“McNeil isn’t scoring, Gordon has gone a little crazy, Iwobi is the most creative player on him and he’s playing in midfield, Dominic Calvert-Lewin has too many injuries.

“They got Maupay, who never really scored a goal for Brighton in a team that created a lot of chances; Now he has gone to a team that doesn’t create many chances.

“So it’s hard; time will tell with Frank, I hope he doesn’t get fired.”

Frank Lampard will be hoping to start a quick revival as Everton are currently 16th in the Log, just two points above the relegation zone currently held by Southampton, Wolves and Nottingham Forest.
