Lampard breaks hand celebrating late Everton win

Everton manager Frank Lampard broke his hand amidst wild celebrations of Alex Iwobi’s 99th-minute strike to beat Newcastle 1-0 and lift the 10-man Toffees three points clear of the Premier League relegation zone.

A second-half interruption caused by a protestor tying himself to a goal post and a VAR review which led to Allan seeing red meant there were 14 minutes of added time at Goodison Park.

And it was Lampard’s men who took advantage as Dominic Calvert-Lewin teed up Iwobi to score the biggest goal of his much-maligned Everton career since a £40 million ($52 million) move from Arsenal three years ago.

“I’ve broken my hand in the celebrations,” said Lampard, showing off a big bruise on his left hand. 

“It was a bit sore and a bit shaky but I don’t care.”

Just a second win in 12 league games was also met with jubilant celebrations at full-time with the financial implications of relegation dire for Everton.

“The whole evening was a big night for us. Nothing is done, we have 11 games to go now but we were all waiting for this moment,” added Lampard.

“A night of fight, togetherness and that all exploded around the stadium when we scored.”
