 The blue half of Merseyside is having a bad season when ranked 17th, just 1 point above the red light group.

Frank Lampard in charge of the first training session at Everton

After sacking Rafa Benitez, Everton immediately appointed Frank Lampard to the hot seat, in the hope that the English strategist would help The Toffees avoid the risk of relegation. However, all is not positive. In the last 3 rounds, Everton lost all, making them fall to 17th place in the table, just 1 point above the group holding the red light.

The last time the blue half of Merseyside was relegated was 1951. Since being promoted back in 1954, Everton have never had to part with the highest league in the land of fog. However, that achievement is in danger of being broken this season.

 Lampard struggled at Everton.

According to the Daily Mail, The Toffees have a contractual obligation to continue to pay players their current base salaries in the Premier League , even if the club relegate to the Championship next season, despite the BLD insisting the All members have a salary reduction clause in case of relegation.

Yerry Mina, Andre Gomes, Jordan Pickford and Dominic Calvert-Lewin are Everton’s highest earners, bringing in £100,000 a week. The Toffees will certainly find a way to cut these names if the club is relegated, to balance the finances. Some stars will probably leave Goodison Park to continue playing at the top.

Everton are suffering a financial blow, with commercial and sponsorship activities with Russian companies USM, Megafon and Yota suspended as a result of the invasion of Ukraine.
