Everton go into the Merseyside derby in desperate need of a win
Frank Lampard’s team have not won any of their first five games this season. They need to turn up against LiverpoolBy Josh Wright for WhoScoredEverton have made their worst start to a Premier League season for over a decade. The last time they failed to win any of their first five games, back in 2010-11, David Moyes was their manager and Mikel Arteta was at the heart of their midfield. Frank Lampard’s side have just three points on the board as they prepare to welcome Liverpool to Goodison Park on Saturday. After narrowly avoiding relegation last season, all signs point towards another slog for the Toffees.After his former Chelsea and England teammate Scott Parker was sacked by Bournemouth – having won one of his four games at the start of the season – Lampard will be clinging to any positives from such a turbulent run. To Everton’s credit, they defended well as a team in their 1-1 draw at Elland Road on Tuesday night. The performance was full of grit and determination.
