Conor Coady admits Everton are in a ‘bad place’ following FA Cup ‘defeat’ to Manchester United… but insists the team ‘have to keep fighting’ for under-pressure boss Frank Lampard
Conor Coady has voiced his support for Everton boss Frank Lampard following the club’s 3-1 defeat to Manchester United.
With the club struggling to stay afloat in the Premier League, Friday’s visit to Old Trafford in the FA Cup offered the Toffees a chance for a reprieve but it never came.
Despite an improved performance compared to their defeat to Brighton last week, Lampard’s side lost again, with Marcus Rashford’s penalty in injury time ending in a 3-1 win for United.

Coady leveled the game on 14 minutes after Antony had given the hosts an early lead before scoring an own goal to put Erik ten Hag’s side back in front.
Following the game, the England international insisted the club needed to move on. ‘We have to keep fighting, we are in a bad way, bad place and everyone wants to get out of it.
‘We came here with a plan and stuck with it. Losing the game with an own goal and a penalty, it’s tiring.’

Despite the defeat, the Wolves loanee expressed his support for Lampard and insisted the former Chelsea boss ‘understands the football club’
The defender, currently on loan from Wolves, has voiced his support for Lampard despite the club’s recent poor run of form.
‘We are not enjoying it and need to get out of here quickly. The manager has been incredible to all of us, outstanding, and he understands the football club. We have to keep listening to him.’
The club will look to rebound on a Premier League return when they face fellow strugglers Southampton at Goodison Park on Saturday.
