Tuchel on Everton trip and Lampard: 'He will always be a legend at our club'

Everton moved two points away from Premier League safety as Richarlison’s goal earned Frank Lampard a priceless victory against former side Chelsea at a raucous Goodison Park.

Burnley’s victory over Watford yesterday left the Toffees five points adrift in the relegation zone but Everton responded in style in front of their own fans to boost their relegation hopes, as Leeds were dragged into the fight.

Everton made life difficult for Chelsea in a heated first half that saw five yellow cards but few goalscoring chances. Richarlison then punished Cesar Azpilicueta as the Chelsea captain was caught in possession, before finishing beyond Edouard Mendy.

Vitaliy Mykolenko wasted a golden chance to double Everton’s lead, before Jordan Pickford made a series of stunning saves to rescue Everton at the other end. The England goalkeeper somehow kept the ball out as he scrambled across his goalline to reach Antonio Rudiger’s shot from close range.

It saved Everton, who missed the chance to seal the win as Demarai Gray wasted an opportunity on the breakaway. Lampard needed to wait through seven minutes of additional time but the Toffees held on to claim a vital victory to boost their survival hopes.

Relive the drama of Everton vs Chelsea below, ahead of Arsenal’s visit to West Ham:

Next up for Arsenal is a home game against relegation-threatened Leeds, while Spurs travel to Anfield to take on title-chasing Liverpool.

Could the Gunners be five points clear of Tottenham by this time next week?

FT: West Ham 1-2 Arsenal

Aaron Ramsdale has given his thoughts after Arsenal’s crucial win over West Ham in their hunt for a top four place.

He told Sky Sports: “It was vital we won. I didn’t know the [Tottenham] score before I went out but of course that was important if we want fourth or even third if we are looking higher.

“I didn’t touch Jarrod Bowen, I was a yard away. He’s a good lad Jarrod, he jumped straight up and was honest and said I didn’t touch him. He thought I was going to make contact.”

Arsenal move back above Spurs. Four games remain. Two-point advantage in the race for Champions League qualification.

FT: West Ham 1-2 Arsenal

Full-time: Arsenal get over the line to move back into the top four.

Rob Holding broke the deadlock with his first Premier League goal, before Jarrod Bowen equalised on the stroke of half-time.

Gabriel then restored Arsenal’s lead 10 minutes into the second half and West Ham offered absolutely nothing going forward in the final half hour.

Mikel Arteta’s men pick up another priceless victory.

90+4 mins: Nketiah wins the softest of free-kicks. That’ll do it.

West Ham 1-2 Arsenal

90+3 mins: West Ham are coming forward in search of an equaliser but they have barely laid a glove on Arsenal in this second half.

Arsenal break as Nketiah finds Smith Rowe. He lays it off to Lokonga inside the penalty area but the substitute leathers a shot into the stands.

West Ham 1-2 Arsenal

90 mins: YELLOW! Nketiah creates some handbags by blocking the taking of a quick free-kick. Rice is fuming. Nketiah is booked.

Cresswell is also booked. Didn’t see why.

89 mins: West Ham free-kick is booted straight out of play for a goal kick to Arsenal. Woeful.
