Everton boss Frank Lampard : "It's a win that has been a little while coming. We probably have deserved it somewhere this season already but it hadn't come. We have been hard to beat recently but we haven't had that clinical edge in front of goal but today we had that.
"It feels like a win that is deserved because it was coming. We are working for it and the lads are owning it. The new players are settling in well. We are playing a different shape to what we were and today we showed little bits and we will get better. The big thing is the three points to give confidence going into the international break.
"It was amazing to stay up like we did last year but we knew we needed to be more stable defensively in this league. The players that are coming in and the ones that are coming in are doing well. We are far from the finished article but not conceding too many goals is something we should be proud of."
On Neal Maupay's winning goal: It's a fantastic goal. A goalscorer's goal. the first touch is clinical and it's not easy to keep it tight and get your shot away. You rely on that feeling of a striker and we maybe draw that game if Neal isn't there."
