Manager believes Burnley will still fight hard against relegationLampard: ‘It doesn’t change anything. Burnley are a good team’Frank Lampard has said Everton cannot expect to benefit from Sean Dyche’s shock sacking because Burnley are adept at fighting for Premier League survival.Burnley’s decision on Friday to remove their long-serving manager has been portrayed in some quarters as a boost to Everton’s chances of avoiding relegation, given Dyche’s experience and the timing of his removal. Everton, who host Leicester on Wednesday, are three points above their relegation rivals with a game in hand and Lampard insists only his team, not events at Turf Moor, can determine the club’s top-flight status.
