It seemed that his new philosophy was built upon defensive solidity, with Conor Coady and James Tarkowski seemingly revolutionising the Goodison Park mindset.
However, now that the defence seems sorted, new problems have arisen at the other end of the pitch.
The Toffees are decidedly toothless this season and have scored only 11 times in 15 games. This has left them just one point above the relegation zone and seriously questioning the manager’s credentials.
He will likely be handed the January window to rectify this issue and must look towards strengthening his wingers if he is to fire them to safety.
This came after The Mirror suggested a £35m move could be on the cards.
Described as “young, hungry and electric” by journalist Rob Blanchette, this is the exact kind of profile needed at Goodison Park to turn the tide.
To sign him could see Anthony Gordon drop out from the team, with the 21-year-old having drawn criticism for his attitude alongside his poor record of just three goals this season.
What makes Sarr such an attractive proposition is the comparison Andre Gray gave, as he claimed: “He’s like our Messi. You just give him the ball & let him do what he’s doing.”
A side crying out for attacking reinforcements, this particular wide man is exactly what Lampard needs to turn around his sluggish side.
His pace and physicality matched with technical perfection will see Gordon forgotten in no time, should they secure the deal this January.
