Still basking in the euphoria of their 2-1 victory over Leicester City at the weekend, Everton coach Frank Lampard has told Alex Iwobi and his teammates they can’t afford to blink at this time.

Everton currently sit two places above the drop zone but Toffees boss Frank Lampard is refusing to rest on his laurels.

A win over Leicester on the weekend made it 10 points from their last five games and they now sit above rivals Burnley and Leeds United in 17th and 18th, respectively.

Everton are on 35 points, one more than the other two sides but also have one game in hand and three fixtures remaining but Lampard, says no slowing down on fight to the finish.

“It’s the only message for us. As much as we enjoyed the weekend, it was a game which got us out of the relegation zone with four games to go but it is very dangerous to relax on that,” said Lampard.

“As much as we can talk about the fans, us as players and staff, the only message is we have to go now and finish the job, which is a tough job.

“We have to expect the worst, everyone else can win, but we can control ourselves so there is absolutely no way we can relax. That’s the biggest message.

“To under-estimate it because Watford are relegated would be our biggest danger. Every game in the Premier League is dangerous, especially when you travel away. The minute you think you have cracked it, it becomes dangerous.”

Sunday’s victory at Leicester was Everton’s first on the road in the Premier League since August but, with two more away games to come, Lampard wants to see more consistency.
