Lampard wants Everton ‘change in mindset’ after Villa loss and hints at new signings

Frank Lampard has called for a ‘change in mindset’ and hinted at new signings after Everton made it two losses from two Premier League games.

The Toffees fell 2-1 away at Aston Villa, almost taking a point if it wasn’t for a late Tyrone Mings interjection.

Things were similarly close in their opener against Chelsea last week, but with a 1-0 loss against Lampard’s old side at Goodison Park, his current team have zero points on the board.

The Everton boss is keen to see the positives in his first full season at the club, with plenty of squad turnover, and potentially more players to come – with Neal Maupay linked with a move to the Toffees.

“There are lots of solutions,” he told talkSPORT. “The reality is the back-three today have never played together.

“We know we’re not playing with a major number nine at the moment, Dominic [Calvert-Lewin] is out for a few weeks, Amadou [Onana]’s come into the team, we saw little glimpses of what he’s going to give us in a positive way.

“Then maybe some business that we’re going to do in the next couple of weeks, so I’m not concerned in the bigger picture.”

It’s not just players that Lampard wants to change, though, but also his team’s mentality, particularly when it comes to playing away from home.

He continued: “It’s important that we remain really patient at the minute anyway because of the element of transition that we’re in, we’re at the start of something.

“We managed to stay up last year, things have to change a little bit in terms of personnel and mindset, and then we will get much better, and in my opinion very quickly.

“It’s a shame we didn’t get the points out of the first two games that I think we deserved, but we have to just be positive and look forward.

“We lost a lot of games away from home from start to finish so that’s the point it’s where we are at, in terms of how robust we are when we travel away from Goodison.

“We were great at Goodison last season, we were great at Goodison last week and deserved something, we were OK today but we need to be better if we’re going to get more points on the road.”
