Frank Lampard begin Everton league reign with a loss as West Ham goes fourth

Frank Lampard’s first league game as the manager of Everton ended in a 3-1 defeat at the hands of Newcastle United.

New signing Kieran Trippier’s stunning free-kick was the lick of the bunch with the win being a booster towards the Magpies dreams of surviving relegation.

The game however had started on some contrasting note when both Jamaal Lascelles and Mason Holgate scored goals leaving both teams tied on a 1-1 draw heading into the break. Newcastle, who handed a debut to £35million new boy Bruno Guimaraes as a late substitute, eventually got themselves over the line courtesy of Ryan Fraser’s scruffy strike and Trippier’s effort in front of a passionate crowd at St James’ Park.

The win which was Newcastle’s third of the season left them just a point behind Everton who introduced newcomers Dele Alli and Donny van de Beek from the bench.

In another game of the night, Jarrod Bowen scored the winning goal as West Ham United beat Watford 1-0 amid the controversy surrounding their defender Kurt Zouma.

A video had emerged of the defender slapping and kicking his pet cat and was forced to apologize for the move after pressure on social media on how to handle animals but manager David Moyes started him despite an uproar from some of the club fans.

Jarrod Bowen got the goal as his deflected shot evaded Watford goalkeeper Ben Foster in what was West Ham’s first in three Premier League games.
