Everton manager Frank Lampard praised his Everton boys for their performance against Arsenal.

A trio of Lewis Warrington, Stanley Mills and Rhys Welch played for the club, who played as a defensive five in their first pre-season game.

“We have to play three at the back because of the group we have on the trip,” Lampard said.

“Lewis Warrington’s confidence in taking the ball in midfield and playing and moving it was nice, it’s the simple things, but since I’ve been here we haven’t done so well. Rhys looked very comfortable and Billy got a clean ball.” leaf for his half.”

Newcomer James Tarkowski, who signed on a free transfer from Burnley earlier this month, has made his debut and impressed Lampard since joining the club.

“I’ve been a big fan of James since before I became Everton manager,” said Lampard.

Also, the Everton coach added: “I wasn’t really worried about the result, you always want to win, but we were competitive, I didn’t like anything that I didn’t like about the players in terms of their application.

“But Arsenal have produced a pretty much complete team and are in a different phase than we are at the moment. It will even out. The process is important, I had a lot to see and think about how to move forward.
