Everton Manager Frank Lampard says he broke his hand celebrating Alex Iwobi’s last-gasp winner against Newcastle, as 10-men Everton snatched a crucial three points.

Allan’s 83rd-minute sending-off looked to have ended any hopes of a victory before Alex Iwobi broke the deadlock in nine minutes into the additional fourteen minutes, due to the VAR review of the red card and a protester who tied himself to a goalpost.

Iwobi’s stunning late victory for the Toffees prompted frenzied celebrations from their coach, who went a little overboard in the heat of the moment as he broke his hands in the process.

  • Alex Iwobi left it late at Goodison Park as Everton snatched a crucial 3 points victory.

It was only Everton’s third Premier League win since September and it lifted them three points clear of 18th-placed Watford with two matches still in hand.

“I don’t know, I did it in the celebrations for the goal. I think I just connected with something somehow and I realised two minutes later my hand was shaking and going a bit achy – but I’ll take it for the three points,” said the Toffees boss.

Asked how many more broken bones he was prepared to take until the end of the season, he added: “They can take one every game if they want.

Everton’s win not only delivers a timely morale boost but also breathes life into their survival hopes after their unfortunate penalty incident against Manchester City 

They now move to a point behind Leeds, with two games in hand over the Whites has the battle for Premier League survival goes on!
