That leaves them just one point above the relegation zone as they face the very real possibility of dropping out of the Premier League for the first time.

Lampard is set to be sacked, talkSPORT understands, as supporters turn on him and the board.

He has only won 12 of his 39 games in charge and even has a worse winning percentage than Rafael Benitez.

Speaking to talkSPORT, former Liverpool midfielder Danny Murphy said: “He has to take responsibility. A win out of 10 is up to you as a manager. You have to find a way with the players you have.

“You can be better from set pieces, play more directly, you can create chances for players even if they’re not natural goalscorers.

“I think he sometimes gets caught between a rock and a hard place. He’s trying to play decent football, and I’m not sure they have enough quality to do that.

“You’re probably better off going the other way and being direct, face-to-face and hard to face.

“Week to week, they look like two different sides.

“I think he’s hanging on. I’m disappointed for him, he’s a great guy and a student of the game and he loves his football, but at the moment Evertonians are restless.

“I don’t know how many are on his side after this performance.”

A furious Everton fan called The Sports Bar and demanded that Lampard be sacked and wanted Sean Dyche to replace him.

Matt the Toffees fans said: “Right now I want a manager who plays s*** housery football. There’s only one name that doesn’t have a job and that’s Sean Dyche. He could pull something from this side. For the moment, they are intended for the Championship.

Former Tottenham midfielder Jamie O’Hara agreed Dyche would be a logical choice for their relegation battle.

He added: “When you think of Everton at the time, the Everton I played against, they were awful. It was always a tough place to go.

“Sean Dyche can still play football.”

On Lampard, he continued: “He comes for this and he has to take responsibility. Players should be ashamed of themselves. Some of the performances I’ve seen in the back are absolutely pathetic.

“I’m a professional footballer and my manager gives me bad tactics or you don’t have the gaffer, you always go out there and play with a bit of pride and win the game.

“Fans are showing up week after week trying to fight for their lives for you and I see some of the players walking around.

” It’s not sure. You can still be hard to beat. You don’t concede three against Bournemouth and four against Brighton and look at yourself and say ‘Come on, I have to be better here’.
