Lampard angered by decisions during Everton defeat at Bournemouth

Everton manager Frank Lampard questioned the consistency of major decisions after his side were thoroughly beaten by Bournemouth.

The Toffees are unraveling in recent matches after a strong start to the Premier League season.

However, Lampard focused his ire on officials, as he believed the second goal from Bournemouth should not have stood during the

Asked about the performance, Lampard said post-game: “The performance was poor, it was below par and in the Premier League you get beaten for that.

“A mistake for the first goal, the referee should disallow the second one, it shouldn’t stand, you have got to stop the game, we got told this against Palace a few weeks ago.

“A defender goes down with a head injury and the game stops whilst the ball is in the box, so the referee got that one wrong. But it is not one to hang on because our reaction after that wasn’t right. But it is difficult coming back in an away game at 2-0 down, it gives the fans and the opposition a lot of impetus but on our part it wasn’t enough.”
