The Toffees have failed to win a game across all competitions since October 22.

Frank Lampard vows to stay focused on his job at Everton despite coming under fire for Toffees’ recent run.

Everton slipped to the 18th spot on the Premier League table when they lost 4-1 against Brighton on Tuesday. The pressure mounts on Lampard as the Toffees prepare to meet Manchester United in the FA Cup.

However, the former Chelsea star says he’s not looking for reassurance over his job at Goodison Park.

“I’ve never and would never seek reassurances,” he said.

“Part of my job is to focus on the job at hand, day to day, game to game. That’s an absolute reality. I don’t need reassurance.

“I come to work to try and improve a little bit every day – myself, the team, the squad, everything. I’m not hunting around for any reassurances.

“I feel that we’re in that process. I’m not silly, we need to get results, we want to stay in this league.

“We’ve just slipped into the bottom three, that’s not my major concern, when you’re around here, that’s the reality. If we win our next league game, we’d be out of the bottom three, probably.

“That’s part of the process, I can’t affect anything other than that. I was very aware of what I came to do, I want to be a success at this club and any challenges that come I’ll take them head on and try and enjoy them – I enjoy working at this club, it’s a real honour for me.

“I take my responsibility as a manager of the club. We had a strategic review because we wanted to look at how we could be better in every department. 

“I’d be superman if I could be in charge of every department, they’re not all my roles. There’s a lot of work to do to be better in every way, on and off the pitch, that’s what great clubs do.”
