Everton forward Neal Maupay appears to have blamed the club’s difficulties on Frank Lampard.
Everton had gone 11 games without a win when Lampard was fired and replaced by ex-Burnley manager Sean Dyche.
On Saturday, Dyche led the team to a 1-0 victory over Arsenal at Goodison Park.
Although he admires Frank Lampard, the former Brighton striker believes Sean Dyche is doing something different.
“It’s difficult to identify what has changed because I liked Frank and had a fantastic time with him.
“I believe Sean Dyche adds a unique perspective. When a new manager arrives, everyone wants to show that they’re ready, therefore we had to battle today.
“The whole week was extremely challenging, that first training session, everyone was sprinting and pressing every day, so that’s what we did.
“The team has quality, but sometimes you need more. You must have heart and run. “That’s a nice start, but there are still a lot of games to play,” he remarked.
