Jamie Carragher makes Everton fan admission and pulls no punches when it comes to ‘disgraceful’ players

Everton are in a scrap to save their Premier League status after losing to Wolves on Sunday.

Jamie Carragher slammed Everton's players as 'an absolute disgrace' as Premier League relegation fears mount.

Rafa Benitez was sacked as manager in January following woeful run of one win in 13league games.

But since taking over, Frank Lampard has also struggled in the Goodison Park hot seat so far. He's guided Everton to just a solitary top-flight victory in six matches.

What’s been said

Carragher, speaking on Monday Night Football, reckons supporters already believe the Blues will be relegated.

And he pinned the blame on the players inside the dressing room for failing to perform for Lampard and his predecessors.

Carragher said: “I don’t think Evertonians believe they’re going to stay up. Their fixtures are horrific.

“The players have been an absolute disgrace. You can talk about Frank coming in, you can talk about Rafa. They are two completely different managers in terms of style.

“You've got Rafa Benitez and look at it and think: '’ bit defensive, sat off teams, allowed other teams to play’.

“Frank is the complete opposite. You're looking at Rafa and thinking it was dull, it was boring. They didn't create an atmosphere at Goodison.

“Whereas [under] Frank, in home games, they've gone after teams, pressed teams, tried to play with energy and try to play from the back - but are still getting awful results.

“They've had [Carlo] Ancelotti, Benitez, Ronaldo Koeman, Marco Silva. They've tried every manager you can possibly think of.

“It's probably similar to a Manchester United situation. No matter what manager you're picking, it's not working.

“Whether that's the structure of the club, the players - the players are an absolute disgrace at Everton, they really are.”
