Harry Redknapp says "a very poor group of players" is the reason for Everton being in real danger of being relegated from the Premier League.

Everton are currently 16th in the table, one point above the relegation zone. Since Redkanpp's nephew Frank Lampard took over as manager at the end of January, they've lost four games and won one in the league. That includes a 5-0 humiliation away to Spurs on Monday night.

"I watched it on TV and Jamie Carragher said it was a Championship back four," Redkanpp told Talksport.

"If you go through, man-for-man, it’s a poor outfit. They’ve recruited badly, got no legs in midfield, the little boy Allan can’t run and get around the pitch.

"It’s only the young lad [Anthony Gordon] who showed any life and played with some energy. They really are a poor outfit.

"You look at their managers, they’ve had Champions League winning managers. Ancelotti couldn’t get a tune out of the club, Rafa Benitez the same.

"They’ve gone through good managers. The recruitment has just been shocking at the club.


"They are average players, average characters. Frank has his work cut out. If he keeps them up then he’s done very well because they are in desperate trouble."

'Pep couldn't turn that Everton group around'

A factor when may aid Everton in avoiding relegation is the majority of their remaining games being at home.

"It’s down to recruitment," said Redknapp.


"I don’t care who you think you are, you could put Pep [Guardiola] in there and he’s not suddenly going to turn that group around.

"They aren’t good enough and have a very average group of players. He’s got a massive job on his hands."
