Will Patrick Vieira’s Arsenal record against Frank Lampard ruin Everton’s survival Premier League bid?


It’s been a disappointing season for Everton and they still haven’t confirmed their place in the Premier League for next season.

After a 3-2 loss to Brentford, they are 16th and just two points above the relegation zone.

Will Vieira’s record against Lampard cause problems for Everton?

And to make matters worse for Everton boss Frank Lampard, his opponent has an incredible record against the Chelsea legend.

Patrick Vieira and Lampard have faced each other 13 times as Premier League players, with the current Crystal Palace boss winning nine of those encounters (D3 L1).

Vieira has won nine out of 13 games against Frank Lampard during his playing career.

Not only is the Frenchman’s prolific stat a concern for Lampard, but the Eagles’ form this season should also panic the 43-year-old.

With two games to play, a place in the first half is certainly within reach for the south London club and a win against Everton would put them in 10th place ahead of rivals Brighton on goal difference.

So there is no doubt that Vieira’s team will be full of motivation.

Will Everton move closer to safety or will their survival bid end until the last day.
