Everton: Jamie O’Hara backs Sean Dyche to replace Frank Lampard amid relegation fears

Talksport pundit Jamie O’Hara has claimed that Everton should look to bring in Sean Dyche to replace current manager Frank Lampard.

What’s the word?

It feels as though the club will surely soon be looking for a new boss as the Toffees continue to struggle in the Premier League. Indeed, a 2-0 defeat at West Ham United means another game week spent inside the relegation zone.

Consequently, the writing looks to be on the wall for Lampard. After all, he has seen his team pick up just one point from their past seven league outings.

With the present situation at hand, new managers will likely be discussed internally at the club in the near future and Dyche is already being touted as a possibility in the press.

While speaking on Talksport about it all, O’Hara claimed the former Burnley man would be an ideal candidate for the job.

He said: (3:15) “Of course you bring in Sean Dyche, he gives you an unbelievable chance of staying in the Premier League.

“Right now, all Everton need to do is stay up.”

Right man for the job?

While in the long term, Everton may have loftier ambitions than simply avoiding relegation, they probably should be looking to hire someone who will be best suited to helping them avoid the drop this season.

With that in mind, Dyche certainly fits the bill. Indeed, he kept Burnley in the Premier League for five consecutive campaigns. What’s more, if he can keep Everton up this term, he could even help them push on up the table in the future like he did when he led the Clarets to an eighth-placed finish in 2018.

Clearly, Lampard doesn’t have much longer to save his job – it remains to be seen if he will even take charge of the club’s next game – and so Everton may need someone to come in immediately.

Considering Dyche’s experience in the English top flight, and the fact that he is currently out of work, he surely has to be high up on the list of realistic candidates for Farhad Moshiri and co.
