The Everton manager gave his view of Manchester United after the Toffees grabbed a massive win at Old Trafford.

Frank Lampard has said Manchester United are a ‘huge club’ with ‘fantastic players’ after Everton beat the Red Devils 1-0 at Goodison Park on Saturday.

Anthony Gordon grabbed the only goal of the game as United suffered another disappointing result, one which only makes their top-four hopes look even slimmer.

The Red Devils still trail Arsenal by three points, but crucially the Gunners now have two games in hand on Ralf Rangnick’s side, while they remain behind Tottenham Hotspur and West Ham United in the league.

Meanwhile, the win for Everton is a huge boost in their relegation fight and moved the Merseyside club four points clear of the drop zone.

Against a side lacking confidence, United never really looked like finding the back of the net, and speaking in his post-match press conference, Lampard was asked whether United look like a side who don’t know how to win games, a claim that was made against Everton earlier this week.

“You can’t talk about a team of [Cristiano] Ronaldo, [Bruno] Fernandes, [Jadon] Sancho and [Marcus] Rashford, and say they don’t know how to win a game. They do,” the former Chelsea manager responded.

“They’re maybe not in their best moment, I think everyone understands that happens to football clubs. We’re not in our best moment, and the only way out of that is to fight and turn it.

“But I don’t need to tell Man United what to do. They have fantastic players, are a huge football club and I think today we dug in and got the result we needed.”

The Red Devils are next in action on Saturday 16 April, when bottom-of-the-table Norwich City travel to Old Trafford.

Before then, Arsenal, Spurs and West Ham could all move further ahead of United in the table. The Gunners host Brighton & Hove Albion at 3pm on Saturday, while Tottenham travel to Aston Villa that evening, before West Ham play Brentford on Sunday.
