Tarkowski is a key part of the backline and has praised Lampard’s coaching

However, he is clearly doing everything he can to earn his chops defensively.

Seeking to improve a leaky defense last season which conceded 66 league goals, he and the club have taken smart moves in the transfer market.

The Toffees picked up Tarkowski on a free Conor Coady and landed on loan from Wolves.

Former Burnley star Tarkowski excelled under the stoicism of former defender Sean Dyche but admitted his game reached a new level with Lampard.

“It was amazing. The coaching is amazing,” he told talkSPORT.

“Obviously I knew the player he was, but I’ve learned so much in the last six months. I just feel like I’m still improving under him.

“I never feel like I’m becoming obsolete. Since I’ve been there, it’s been a breath of fresh air for me. I learn new things every day.

“You’re kind of expected to be a leader in that, but that’s what I want to be and I like taking on that role as well.”
