Everton beat Manchester United 1-0 at Goodison Park to secure a crucial three points in their battle against relegation.

Anthony Gordon’s deflected strike in the first half was enough to put the Toffees four points clear of the Premier League’s bottom three.

Chances came and went for Cristiano Ronaldo and Marcus Rashford as United fell to another defeat, putting a big dent in Ralf Rangnick’s side's chances of a top-four finish.

Frank Lampard has given his thoughts on the game after his Everton side picked up a crucial three points in their battle for survival in the Premier League.

He said: "I'm very proud. Pressure times. The reality of the situation. At Goodison, we have been good. We are getting clean sheets at home. When we come together with fans and players we are hard to beat here.

"Beautiful football can come later on. I have ambitions for this club to stay up, play well, but in the position we are in, fighting comes first and foremost.

"It's one win. We should have got a result in the week but didn't. You have to keep going. It's not easy when you wake up the next morning after Burnley. My job first and foremost is to lift everyone. They are a good bunch these players."
