Frank Lampard suggested most of it Everton the team surrendered during the 5-0 defeat to Tottenham on Monday night.
Toffees defended in the north incredibly poorly Londonending up 3-0 in the first half and it really could have been worse.
Any hope of returning to the second half was immediately dashed when a substitute Sergio Regilon scored his first touch just a minute after the exit before Harry Kane scored his second goal and final in the match in the 55th minute.
The defeat leaves Everton 17th in the Premier League and firmly in the relegation fight, while Lampard says it requires more effort from his players.
Looking for positives from a terrible night for Everton, Lampard chose young striker Anthony Gordon, but said only a “couple” of other players “didn’t give up” in the match.
“We need to think in the bigger picture that we have 13 games ahead of us, eight of them at home, and the teams around us are having a hard time,” Lampard said. Sky Sports.
“We need to understand that before I came, there were problems that became clearer every day.
“But the main thing when I manage it – the positive remains. Not a stupid positive. This evening, in fact, there is nothing positive except, probably, Anthony Gordon and a couple of speeches on the merits of people who did not give up.
“It has to be the absolute minimum, I demand it, and it gives me a lot of food for thought.”
The next two games Everton will play at home against the Wolves and Newcastle, which will be crucial in their bid for survival in the Premier League.
At the end of the campaign for Toffee become very difficult: four of their last five matches against Liverpool, Chelsea, Leicester and Arsenal.
