Sean Dyche, a former Burnley manager, was officially recruited by Everton on Monday to replace the fired Frank Lampard.

The Premier League’s top team, Arsenal, will be Dyche’s first opponent at Goodison Park on Saturday. Dyche and Arsenal have signed to a two-and-a-half-year contract.

The 51-year-old described his appointment as a “honour” at the Merseyside club, which has not won a trophy since 1995.

“I am aware of Everton’s ardent fan base and how important this club is to them,” Dyche said in a club statement.

“We’re ready to get to work and offer them what they want. That begins with sweat on the shirt, effort, and returning to some of the fundamental principles that Everton Football Club has stood for for many years.

“We want to restore a positive feeling. We need the fans, we need unity, and we need everyone to be on the same page. That begins with us as coaches and players.”

“He soon convinced me that he has exactly the required traits to make himself a great Everton manager,” Everton chairman Bill Kenwright said. “And a man who could motivate our fanbase.”

After nine losses in 12 Premier League games, Lampard was fired last week. His disastrous loss to West Ham, a team battling for relegation, was the tipping point in his turbulent tenure.

Everton is fighting to avoid playing in the lower division of English football for the first time since 1954 as they languish second from the bottom of the Premier League.

Since Farhad Moshiri acquired control of the team in 2016, former Leeds manager Marcelo Bielsa had also been considered for the position of eighth permanent manager at Everton.
