Frank Lampard 'faces Everton sack' as Toffees boss on the brink after Brighton calamity

Several candidates have already been mentioned as possible replacements for Lampard if he is axed by the Premier League club in the coming days. Former Tottenham boss Mauricio Pochettino - out of work since leaving PSG in June - may welcome the chance to return to a job in the top-flight.

Wayne Rooney is currently the bookmakers’ favourite to replace Lampard if the 44-year-old does leave his position, although the ex-Toffees striker is currently in charge of MLS outfit D.C United. Other managers in the frame include Sean Dyche, David Moyes and Ange Postecoglu.

It would bring an end to a 12-month spell in charge for Lampard, who has won only 12 of his 41 games in charge, giving him a win rate of just 29 per cent.

He has previously managed Derby and Chelsea, with his 18-month spell with the Blues also ending in January two years ago after a run of five defeats in eight.
